A Baptist appreciation
As a Southern Baptist, I'm finding your studies fascinating . Having just finished the segment on the Pharisees, I learned so much concerning the transition (put simply)from people of the temple, to people of the Torah - and its study. You engaging style and colorful lectures are a blessing!

Incorrect. The Men of the great assembly were traditional Jewsish sages such as Ezra, Mordachai (from the Purim story) and the prophets Zecharia Malachi. See Maimonides introduction to his Mishna Torah.

Beggerman ...
Beggars are just fine, G-d bless them. It's what comes after them that's not fine: thieves.

You said a beggar can not study Torah, unless I misunderstood. What is the reason for that?
Thank you.

Another brilliant class
You stated that the study of Torah is a passion. I agree! Torah study consumes your waking thoughts. I love it. Thank you for this wonderful class.
