Episode 12 - Vilna Gaon III - The Gaon’s Torah Accomplishments 

In this episode we take a closer look at the  Vilna Gaon’s accomplishments in Torah. One of the key issues is proper understanding of the Vilna Gaon as a posek. How revolutionary was he? How much of a departure was he from the earlier poskim? One of the other key issues we look at is how to understand the Vilna Gaon’s editing of Shas and other Rabbinic material. Why did he edit some of these documents heavily and barely touch others?
