True Giving
Disc: 109 / Program: 436 | Talk
Event Date: 10 Shevat, 5743 • January 24, 1983
Historically, Jews treated their wisdom in a vastly different way from other nations. In Egypt, for example, knowledge and scientific progress were the exclusive domain of an intellectual elite.

Disc: 9 / Program: 36 | Talk
Event Date: 10 Shevat, 5743 • January 24, 1983
The mitzvah to “love your fellow as yourself” raises a dilemma. What should you do when your needs are different from your friend’s? If you are thirsty while your friend is hungry, it would be un-loving to offer him a drink instead of food. If you have time for Torah study while your friend is struggling to make ends meet, it is wrong to help him learn Torah but ignore his need for help earning a livelihood. ExpandMore
