Kotzk and Pshicha

Filed under: Blog Torah — Reb Moshe @ 7:08 am

Once again, after reading stories about the holy Rabbi’s of Pshicha and Kotzk, I have been moved to intertwine their methods into my life and ilovetorah fans. In Pshicha which sorta came first, Rav Simcha Bunim once said, “It is not my job to be like Abraham, it is only my job to be like Simcha Bunim. In Pshicha, they didn’t copy one another but rather a person understood that they have to go their own way in serving Hashem.

In Kotzk, they took it a step further. They simply asked, are you for real? Is there anyone real here? A chassid would search their entire life for realness in others and themselves. They would settle for nothing less. It wasn’t about how scholarly a person was. Rather, it was much deeper then then this.
