Lessons From the Parsha…
By: HaRav Elozer Yosef Silver פ' קרח
We read in ּפרק ד משנה א,ּפרקי אבות, ." ֶּבן זֹו ָמא אֹו ֵמר ֵאיֶּזהּו ָח ָכם? ַהלֹו ֵמד ִמ ָכל ָאָדם
ֶּשֶּנ ֱא ַמר ִמ ָכל ְמ ַל ְמַדי ִה ְש ַכ ְל ִתי-- בן זומאsays: Who is wise? He who learns from every person. As
it says: 'From all my teachers I grew wise' " )צ"ט:(תהלים קיט. In this משנה, ֶּב ֶֶּן זֹו ָמאteaches
us the true definition of wisdom. It is not merely one's knowledge or intellectual status, but
rather his constant search for knowledge, which defines a true חכם.
As simple as this teaching sounds, it is often difficult to implement. One who
feels he has reached a certain level of maturity and understanding may find it difficult to
admit that he can learn something from someone who is far below his own level of
knowledge. Yet truly great people, who have a constant thirst for truth and knowledge, will
learn from anyone--even from young children.
One שבתafternoon, after he had finished eating the שבת סעודה, the Tshebiner
Rav (R' Dov Berish Weidenfeld, 1879-1965) went to lie down for a little while. He had been
resting only a short time when he heard a knock at the door. He decided to disregard it
because he was truly exhausted. But the knocking persisted.
He thought to himself, "Maybe it is an emergency. Whoever is there is not going
away. Perhaps I should get up to see who it is." And so, as tired as he was, he got out of
bed and went to the door. When he opened it, he saw that it was a little nine-year-old boy
holding a גמרא. (Most areas in ירושליםare within the confines an עירוב, thus allowing the
child to carry on שבת.)
"גוט שבת," the רבsaid. "What is it that you want?" The little boy looked up at this
great תלמיד חכםand said, "I just finished learning ( המפקידthe third ּפרקin מסכת בבא
)מציעא, and I would like the רבto give me a farher (test)."
The elderly רבasked the boy to come in, and sat down with him at the dining
room table. "My child, I will listen to you say the גמרא," said the רב, "but I would just like to
explain something to you first. If you come to a 'רבs house on a שבתafternoon, and you
knock on the door and there is no answer, and you knock again and still there is no
answer, then you have to think that perhaps the רבmay have been somewhat tired and
went to rest for a little while."
The little boy's face turned pale as he looked up at the Tshebiner רבand said, with
purity and innocence, "I never thought that a רבsleeps on שבת."
In the child's mind, a man as holy as a רבwould, on a שבתafternoon, either be
studying תורהor busy answering people's ( שאלותreligious questions). Sleeping on שבתwas for
mere mortals, not רבנים.
The Tshebiner רבwas so taken aback by this child's perception of a רב, that from
then on he never again slept on שבתafternoon!

This is permissible. However, to prevent a zilzul of Shabbos it is preferable
