Description

1. Why is the Yetzer Hara punished for doing his job? 2. Why was Matan Torah so scary with the deathly fires? 3. Why did Hashem make it necessary to have isurim to acquire Talmud Torah? A: 3. Maharal and Rav Kook - Torah is completely sublime and beyond this world. We can't achieve it without isurim to show we can escape our physical confines. 2. Rav Nissim Alpert -You can't have Matan Torah without the fire because it is a complete experience that we need to be consumed with. 1. Chida - the Yetzer Hara is punished for tripping us up in our efforts to learn Torah. He is supposed to test us but not to trip us up.
