The intensity of our feelings for Torah


"When Rav Safra died, the sages did not tear their clothing for the loss, because he was not their mentor.

"Abbaye rebuked them: Is the law taught, 'When one's mentor passes [one tears his clothing]?' It is taught, 'When any sage passes [one tears his clothing]!' Further, his lessons are in the mouths of people in the study hall every day!"

(Talmud, Moed Katan 25a)

Have a great day,
