    Shmaya and Avtalyon are Gerim

    Dear Rabi Jacobson,

    Allow me to introduce my self My name is Benjamin Mesica, living in Rishon Le-Zion, Israel...(10 minutes from Kfar Habad)

    First, Thank you very much for your great lectures and lessons. I learn and enjoy very much.

    On the subject lesson, you mentioned that the Rambam mentions (even emphasizes) that Shmaya and Avtalyon  are Gerim, also Rabi Akiva and Rabi Meir are offspring's of Gerim. Just wanted to share my thoughts that maybe the Rambam, Loyal to his method, that Every Person Can be as righteous  as Moshe Rabeynu, wants to teach us that even Gentiles can reach such high levels and that it is all up to US!

    No one can say, I can't study I wasn't born as Ben Torah etc...it is up you.

    Again Thank you very Much

    Yishar Koach

    יישר כח גדול מאוד

    שאלה להרב שליט"א , רק אם זה לא גוזל מזמנו היקר.

    בידוע מכמה מקומות שרבי עקיבא נקרא כעיקר תורה שבעל פה, ורבי שמעון בר יוחאי אחריו, כמו שאמר רבי שמעון שנו מדותי שהם תרומות ממדותיו של רבי עקיבא, מעניין א"כ שאת רבי שמעון בר יוחאי הרמב"ם מזכיר רק כחבירו של מאיר ולא כתלמידו של רבי עקיבא (אולי 'רבי ורבי שמעון חבירו' הכוונה לרשב"י, שסתם רבי שמעון הוא רשב"י). אולי גם העובדה שלא היה לפני הרמב"ם את ספר הזוהר קשורה לזה. 

    ובעיקר מתמיה שאת רבי עקיבא, הרמב"ם לא מדגיש במיוחד, ובפרט כשהוא מונה את ה40 דורות עד משה רבינו, איננו מזכיר כלל את רבי עקיבא.

    שוב יישר כח גדול על הרוממות המיוחדת שהשיעורים נותנים.

    שלום

    Thank you for the beautiful shiur of the Rambam. My wife and I listened to the shiur. However ,there seemed to be some technical problem as your voice did not always match what you were saying.

    In the meantime , as of 1:oop.m. this afternoon, our neighborhood,Romema; Belz, kiryat  Tzans and Kiryat Mattersdorf are under total lockdown due to Corona.

    Gut shabbos,

    Pinchus

    Beautiful words (almost word for word) from Rabbi Jacobson worthy of repeating:

    "Why did Rabbenu write the Mishnah?  Saw talmidim are diminishing, oppression and difficulties were renewing, Rome was expanding and stronger, Yiden exiled to corners of the world.

    He realized:  We don’t have cohesiveness, peace of mind, infrastructure to maintain the integrity of Judaism/Torah as it was when the Jewish people were cohesive and they could maintain their lifestyle and tradition in a vibrant, unified  and integrated way."

    One can get lost in the list of the chain of names in the mesorah

    I venture to  say that the important thing to know is  that every halacha we have today, or that Rambam wrote down,  is traceable back thru the list of  the mesorah to Moshe and Har Sinai.  Unlike other  "religions".

    If the Mishne Torah was a comprehensive compendium of halacha, why was Joseph Karo's Shulchan aruch later written?

    Wasn't the Tur the first to extract halachas from the gemora and organize them by topic?

Dedicated by Liz and Dr. Michael Muschel in memory of his father, HaRav Nachum ben Meir, for the 5th yahrzeit, 18 Tamuz.
Born in Tarnov, Poland, escaping the Germans to Siberia, he ultimately arrived in the US and received semicha from the renowned  Reb Yisroel Gutsman. For more than 50 years Rabbi Muschel headed the ASHAR Yeshiva day school in Monsey, mentoring thousands of students, inspiring hundreds of families, instilling in his disciples love for Torah, Yiddishkeit, and Israel. A teacher to his very core, Rabbi Muschel continued to teach each Tuesday a Navi class for women until his final days.
