Berchas "Al Ha'Tzaddikim": Appreciating Who Our "Zekainim" and "Sofrim" Really Are - Audio Shiur

Presenting Reb Yerachmiel's most recent Baltimore Community Kollel shiur from Sunday night January 11th, 2009, and his second on berchas "Al Ha'Tzaddikim" in Shemoneh Esrei.

In this shiur Reb Yerachmiel defines the terms "Ziknay Amcha Beis Yisroel" and "Pelaytas Sofrayhem" as explained by Chazal. As he and his shiur proceed methodically through this bracha, the hope is that each of us will find ourselves mentioned therein, not only under the "catchall" phrase of "Ve'Aleinu" but even in the dramatic and honorable categories that proceed it!

You mean Reb Yerachmiel would be the Dixie Yid... Anyway, it would be tuff to do the Aish Kodesh/Baltimore commute on a daily basis, although, trust me, I've considered it myself.
