48 Ways: #34 - Love Justice


Pirkei Avot 6:5 teaches that Torah is acquired in 48 ways, which it lists for us. The thirty-fourth of the 48 is oheiv et hameisharim, to love justice.

As we said for yesterday's "way", the relationship between love of justice an success in Torah study may be understood along at least two lines:

1. We may suggest that one needs a love of justice in order to comprehend the justice-rooted laws and anecdotes of the Torah, and

2. We may suggest that one needs a refined personality - one which loves justice, for example - to achieve success in Torah study.

Have a great day,
