    Maskil and Oived
    Dear Rabbi Paltiel my teacher my father, Forgive me if this question is nonsensical: would an accurate classification of Oived or Maskil be possibly traced back to the Talmud Horyos of Oiker Harim or Sinai... Or in the Talmud Sanhedrin where Rava laments proficiency in the most intricate topics of Jewish law wasnt as superior as R Yehuda who was less knowledgeable but had his prayers answered for, for he had heart???? Thank you ahead, Shmuel C.

      Re: Maskil and Oived

      I wouldn’t link it to Sinai and Oker Harim but I would link it to Rav Yochonon ben Zakai and Rav Chanina Ben Dosa in Brachos (no Gemara near me now for daf reference). Rav Yochonon said of Rav Chanina he’s as a servant who has acces to the most private pleces and is “Aili blo Bar” can enter with no invitation and the like.

      Which Gemara in Sanhedrin are you referring to?

      I don’t mind being called a friend or teacher but your father? Aint that a bit much?

      Your friend, Y. Paltiel.
