Biblical Faith – with Sam Peak
Weekly series with new shows available every Tuesday.
In G’morrah (Brochos 35B), we see how the ancients were superior. They made the study of Torah their main purpose in life, and their wok was secondary necessity, and they were sucessful at both. Recent generations make their work their main purpose and the study of Torah incidentail, and they fail at both. The ancients were careful to bring crops into their houses and barns through a main entrance, for only in that way do they become liable for maaser, or tithes, they valued the mitzva of maaser over the expense. Contemporary people go out of their way to bring their crops in through trap-doors and windows in order to evade the obligation of maaser.
From “Mysteries of the Creation” by Rabbi Dovid Brown. We are studying from the following pages: pg. 152–156.
