Description

An overview of the dispute between the Nefesh HaChaim and the Talmidei HaB'esht regarding the definition of Torah Lishma. What is more important Talmud Torah or Yiras Shamayim? The discussion revolves around a beautiful essay in the Ohalei Yaakov from 1938 by its author Rav Yaakov Freidman, the Rebbe of Hosiyatin, a direct descendant of the Maggid of Mezeritsch and the leader of Mizrachi in Vienna at the time.
