Talmud Torah vs Chesed- which is the greater?

One of the most misinterpreted texts in Chazal involves the crucial and intricate question, "which is greater, Talmud Torah or Chesed?" In this shiur, we explore this question and other related issues. Along the way, many texts in Avot and elsewhere are elucidated. 

Rabbi Pinchas Ben Yair and his donkey

An analysis of several key aggadic texts, including the narrative of R. Pinchas ben Yair and his donkey, as well as his famous beriatah (which is the foundation of Mesillat Yesharim). 

These texts have much to say about how we are to approach our Avodat Hashem, especially in terms of doing things in the best possible way. This shiur relates to our discussion of chumrot, and more.

What are sheidim? What did chazal wish to tell us when they spoke of them?

R. Eliezer Ben Durdaya and Hillel

A study in the narrative of two fascinating and seemingly unrelated heroes- and the incredible relationship between their life stories (which ultimately is our life story).

Shemaya and Avtalyon

A crucial perspective on life emerges from the lives of two incredible personalities.

Hamehalech Baderech Veshoneh- a life transforming lesson!

On the surface- one of the strangest of mishnayot in Avot. Upon deeper understanding, a major key to life.

Chapter 5 of Avot- Does it fit?

The final chapter of the masechtah- and the exception that proves the rule!

THe secret of Masseshet Avot

A framework for understanding the depths of Masechet Avot. What is the unique nature of the masechtah, and why is it called “Avot”?
