The Most Important Shiur You'll Ever Hear in Your Jewish Life
I have to share with you a certain speech given by Rav Moshe Weinberger at the Philadelphia Community Kollel (former link was to this shiur - now different). It was given at exacly this time of year, right after parshas Behar and leading up to Shavuos. If you're not already a "chassid" of Rav Weinberger, (or even if you are, as a reminder) you have to hear this speech. Much of it is the same as the shiur I first heard by him at a Hashevaynu Retreat about 10 years ago, that first made me "fall in love" with what he was teaching. When you listen, you will see why.
CLICK HERE to listen to or download the shiur. This has a couple of classic stories from Rav Weinberger, including the hilarious "jukim" story, and the must-listen "Lost Horse" story. It is so fundamental to Yiddishkeit to hear this shiur.
Update 3/16/10: It was pointed out by a commenter and in an e-mail today that the shiur that I had previously linked to here is no longer hosted by the Philadeplphia Community Kollel website. Therefore, I just changed the link above to another shiur which is equally fundamental. Enjoy.
A big thank you to Yoni Henner who (originally) pointed me to this shiur!
