Menachot 53a: How does a Rebby give Chizzuk to a student when the latter is disheartened?
How did Rebby Preyda console Rav Ezra in the Agadata in Menachot? The Keren Orah [Rav Yitzchok Minkovsky, 1784-1852] dissects this Agadata with the same rigor he would analyze a Halachic text. In doing so, he reveals the symbolic meaning of a korban mincha, the importance of man's search for the knowledge of God, and the nature of genuine consolation. This shiur will serve as an introduction to our study of the nature of Talmud Torah and the benefits a student of Torah should derive from its study.
