Lately, on Monday evenings I've been on the phone with a collection of smart and interesting people studying the Baal Shem Tov (Master of The Holy Name.) Unlike most classes, we have begun to discuss (and add to our lives) the essence of the subject, instead of studying "facts." It's the best way to study ever. I wonder no one has decided this is how edcation should be.
Perhaps it's only because the teacher is so remarkable.
