Audio Shiur on Berchas "Al Ha'Tzaddikim": Sympathy, and Empathy, For An Unlikely Type of Tzaddik
Presenting Reb Yerachmiel's most recent Baltimore Community Kollel shiur from Sunday night January 18th, 2009, and his third on berchas "Al Ha'Tzaddikim" in Shemoneh Esrei.
In this shiur Reb Yerachmiel reads and explains a heart-wrenching maamar from the sefer "Darchei Noam" (the Slonima Rebbe shlita), which discusses the classic debate between Yaakov and Yosef regarding the blessing of Ephraim and Menashe. Indeed, this maamar introduces us to a very different type of Tzaddik, and forces us to sympathize and therefore daven for this Tzaddik, while simultaneously empathizing with this Tzaddik, as we recognize in this Tzaddik, a little bit of ourselves.
