Rabbi Benjamin Samuels

The story is told that once when a principal of a day school went to consult with his Rosh Yeshiva about expelling a student, the great rabbi surprised him by asking: "What is the name of the student's mother?"

The bewildered principal asked: "Why is that important?"

The Rav answered: "Are telling me that you are considering expelling a student, but you have not yet davened for him?!"

In this week’s parashah, Yaakov...Read more...

This week, I started teaching two Talmud classes on Property Law. One might wonder, why is property law considered a sacred Torah study?
