Talmud Torah: The Mitzva of Torah Study

This course will address the gravity, goals, methods and scope of talmud Torah, the relationship between learning and teaching, and important aggadot and later thinkers on the subject. Along the way, we'll examine fascinating subjects such as Torah lishmah, the emotional world of the learner (reverence, joy, toil), breadth versus depth, Torat Eretz Yisrael, the disgraced Torah scholar, and the character of the rebbe-talmid relationship.
