Women of Honor

The tasks of the Jewish people are divided between Torah study and engaging in the physical world. The rule, however, is that commandments don’t override Torah study. Nevertheless, a mitzvah that cannot be done by others does override Torah study; it actually takes priority.

Disc 176, Program 701

Event Date: 19 Kislev 5722 - November 27, 1961

The tasks of the Jewish people are divided between Torah study and engaging in the physical world. The rule, however, is that commandments don’t override Torah study. Nevertheless, a mitzvahthat cannot be done by others does override Torah study; it actually takes priority.

Establishing your own Jewish home on the foundations of Torah and mitzvos, is a mitzvah that cannot be done by others. No one else can do it for you, no one can replace you, and only you know what needs to be rectified, and what requires improvement. Therefore, this commandment takes priority over Torah study.
