Episode 52 - Tzimtzum - The Vilna Gaon’s approach 

 In this episode we carefully look at the Vilna Gaon’s understanding of Tzimtzum. Does the Vilna Gaon in fact directly argue with those who hold Tzimtzum should not be understood literally? How does the Vilna Gaon understand the spiritual structure that gives our world the ability to exist? What exactly is he arguing with Chassidus about in this issue? We also look at R' Dessler’s comment on this controversial issue.
