R. Aizik Homiler related: When I came to Lyozna I met elder chassidim who had been chassidim of the Maggid and of R. Menachem Mendel of Horodok. They used to say:
Have affection for a fellow-Jew and G-d will have affection for you;
do a kindness for a fellow-Jew and G-d will do a kindness for you;
befriend a fellow-Jew and G-d will befriend you.
Hayom Yom 13 hechvan
Le Baal Chem Tov avait coutume d’enseigner la Guemara à ses disciples. Il délivrait son enseignement avec une grande finesse et beaucoup d’érudition. Il y incluait le Rambam, le Alfassi, le Roch et d’autres commentaires des Richonim portant sur le traité qui faisait l’objet de l’étude.
Le Baal Chem Tov traduisait le texte en Yddich. Lorsqu’il enseigna le traité Erkin et parvint à l’affirmation de nos Sages (15B) selon laquelle “un langage triple tue trois personnes”, le Baal Chem Tov expliqua:
“La médisance tue tous les trois, celui qui en est l’auteur, celui qui en fait état et celui qui l’écoute. Certes, cette mort n’a qu’une dimension spirituelle. Mais elle est encore plus grave qu’un crime physique.”
(Le “langage triple” est celui de l’homme qui rapporte une médisance. Il agit ainsi en tant que “troisième personne”, intermédiaire, entre l’auteur de ce propos et celui qui l’écoute.)

In My Opinion
I was not in Israel when Rav Ovadyah Yosef passed on to his eternal reward. However, even in Brazil where I was at the time it was front-page news and pictures of the enormous funeral procession accompanied the obituary article. Rarely has one person had such an imposing effect upon the lives of millions of others as did Rav Yosef. His greatness in Torah knowledge was unquestioned, even by those who may have disagreed with some of his policies and halachic rulings. Possessed of a photographic memory coupled with an encyclopedic knowledge of thousands of rabbinic works and writings that have spanned the ages, his own volumes of halachic rulings and Torah insights became a staple in…

Teachings for Life from the Great Lithuanian Rabbis
Exploring the wisdom of the great sages of Lithuania, The Legacy presents a moral and spiritual vision for the Jewish people. Providing a glimpse into the world of these sages – their own teachers’ rabbis – the authors outline the ideas and deeds, the values and ethics by which Jews should live. This is not a book about what once was: It is a book about what should, and can, be – now and forever in Jewish life.
One of the great challenges of coming to grips with Torah is that it is the wisdom of Hashem and therefore unlimited in its breadth and depth.
As mere mortals, we are confronted with how to understand it, where to channel our efforts, and how to view specifics in the context of the entire system.
Through understanding what Gedolei Yisrael (the great sages of Israel) over the ages chose to emphasize, we get a better understanding of Torah itself. We are able to gain perspective and a context for understanding Torah Judaism, as well as a broad map for the direction of our lives.
Limitations of the mental and emotional capacity of students, not to mention limitations of space and time, may have led our Torah sages to emphasize certain principles.
On a practical and strategic level, focusing on a few key objectives helps people to achieve success because the objectives are clear. This clarity prevents distraction and confusion and provides a clear framework of eternal principles in a changing world, to inspire strength and commitment.
“I am Lithuanian and everything is true.” Rabbi Shmuel Kamenetsky
