The Reb & His Talmedim

handwave.gifThe strength of a teacher is his students. When they ask questions and interact with him, the teacher elevates himself in order to guide the student. They force him to become deeper then himself as he must be sure of his answer, rechecking himself and his sources. When he spends personal time with them, he digs deeply into himself in order to encorage and bring them to higher levels. All along, really, it is the student that is truly giving his teacher the push he needs in order to grow and accomplish.

If you go to a Tish, you see the Rebbe only singing a little bit while the chassidim are singing a lot more. Who is really helping who? Then again, this situation also applies in the other direction as well.

I have been very troubled lately in thinking away to bring us all together more. To do something that has never been done before between a Reb and his students in order to break down the wall of distance. Most of you, unfortunately, I will never meet but you are my dear friend and student. I am also your student, as I explained above.

So my thoughts are, to maybe give everyone a profile page on ilovetorah and allow everyone to contact each other. If you like this idea and have any extra thoughts on it, please let me know. It will costs some money but I am lonely without you my friends and I want you all to be real to one another. What do you think?


  1. Perhaps eventually, but if mamesh there are $$$ problems then perhaps wait and stabilize the existence of what we already have.

    In addition, I think it would require too much monitoring, for if ilovetorah gets so many visitors, then ANYONE would be able to have one. Perhaps if it was a very simple thing where viewers get to display and share favorite videos, if everything was internal, because I would just be worried about the sanctity of ilovetorah, after all it is Torah. Outside influinces and spam etc… I think it would require much monitoring. If it was a simple one page thing with an about-me and a jewish background, I dunno, I’ll keep you posted about my opinions.

    Gut Voch!
