    Parshat V'Etchanan
    (From Deuteronomy)

    L'Chaim (2000)

    Excerpt: "Keep therefore and do them, for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the eyes of the nations (Deut. 4:6)

    Some people mistakenly think that wisdom and understanding are unnecessary requirements for fearing G-d, and that any fool can do so easily. In truth, however, a great deal of wisdom and intelligence is necessary to be able to keep the Torah properly. (Rabbi Moshe Chafetz)"

    L'Chaim (1998)

    Therefore keep and do them, for this is your wisdom and understanding (Deut. 4:6)

    It is a wide-held misconception that in order to have fear of G-d, undue Torah study isn't necessary, and that any fool on the street can attain it. Not so! In order to observe the Torah properly, a great deal of wisdom and understanding is essential. (Rabbi Moshe Chefetz)
