Biblical Faith – with Shmuel “Sam” Peak
Weekly series with new shows available every Tuesday.
Chapter 4 Mishnah 7
Rabbi Zadok says: Do not separate yourself from the community; when serving as a judge do not act as a lawyer; do not make the Torah a crown for self-glorification, nor a spade with which to dig. So too Hillel used to say – He who exploits the crown of Torah for personal benefit shall fade away. From this you derive that whoever seeks personal benefit from the words of Torah removes his life from the world.
Rabbi Yose says: Whoever honors the Torah is himself honored by people; and whoever disgraces the Torah is himself disgraced by people.
