Rabbi Paltiel: “I am thirty-six years old, and I learn Gemara. And I’ve been learning Gemara since I was nine or ten. It wasn’t until relatively recently that I started to see what I’ve always been brainwashed with. I started to see it — that every single word of Gemara comes from Chumash.”
Listen to the rest here. Very nice shiur on the role of Chassidus in making Torah relevant, comparison of Torah with, lehavdil, science, argument in Torah keeping it true and other good stuff.
