wake…Jews were appointed to high public office. In addition, many Muslim leaders did not seriously discriminate against the Jews, allowing a rich Jewish culture to develop, especially at the peak of Muslim power and glory. During the High Middle Ages from 850 to 1250 Jewish culture flourished. The Babylonian Talmud was developed…the Synagogue as an institution was solidified and Jewish prayer adopted much the form it has today; Jewish theology was systematized, Jewish law was codified, and the Hebrew language was studied. The Jews of Muslim Spain enjoyed prosperity and political influence…This period is often remembered as the Golden Age of Spain in Jewish history” – (Sara E. Karesh et al. Encyclopedia of Judaism, Infobase Publishing, New York, 2006, p. 346).
