Torah Lishma - The Vilna Gaon’s Approach
Listen now
Many assume that R Chaim Volozhin completely argues with the Tanya about how to understand Torah Lishma. In this episode, we take a closer look at the issue. We specifically look at a number of statements from the Vilna Gaon in Mishley that discuss the issue. How does this affect how we understand R Chaim Volozhin’s comments on the issue?   We also take a closer look at the custom of wearing hats and jackets for davening, and how people relate to this is a practical sense.
