#29 - The Maggid and his Talmidim

In this episode we look at the Maggid of Mezritch’s greatest accomplishment, attracting Talmidim. How did the Maggid attract Talmidim? What kind of Talmidim did he attract? Was there competition between the Maggid and the Gaon in this? Was there any difference in who the Maggid would accept as a Talmid and who the Gaon would accept as a Talmid? Are there any Historical questions on the famous story of R Shmelke of Nikolsburg initially learning by the Gaon?

  We also examine the out of proportion place that the Chief Rabbi’s of England have played in the last forty years.
