Torah Study As An Occupation Interesting to know that one can study Torah, dedicate much time in it, and at the same time succeed in whatever one is working on. I thought that one could not do both. I like to paint and do other crafts, spend a lot of time in sketching, and sometimes feel guilty if do not seek HaShem. But, whenever stop what i am doing, Torah is my passion. Today, your message have been enlightening. Thak you so much. Reply
