CHAVES:

City in Portugal, which in the fourteenth century had a fairly large Jewish community, and an "aula," or school, "in which the Law was expounded by the rabbis." This school was subject to a special tax. Before the expulsion of the Jews from Portugal the Jewish quarter here annually paid 31,000 reis in taxes.
