Episode 14 -GAON V - The Vilna Gaon’s Unfulfilled Ambitious Projects 

In this episode we look at the Vilna Gaon’s most ambitious projects that he ultimately was not able to complete. His project of writing a final and fully definitive version of Shulchan Aruch and his attempted Aliyah to Israel. Are these two projects connected? Is there anyway to know when they happened? How much documentation is there about his Aliya?
