48 Ways: #13a - Resolution


Pirkei Avot 6:5 teaches that Torah is acquired in 48 ways, which it lists for us. The thirteenth of the 48 is yishuv, resolution.

When learning Torah, we frequently come across sources which appear to contradict each other. One might be tempted to write off these sources as irreconcilable or to dismiss the problem as a function of our personal ignorance, but we will learn far more from an honest attempt to get to to the heart of each source and comprehend their shared language.

Have a great day,
