Torah Lishmah (en)

Chazal maintained that ideal Torah study should be "lishmah" - accompanied by the proper mindset and motivation. The series explicates this ideal while showing that it actually is a reflection of what Torah is all about. We will focus first on the position of Rav Hayyim of Volozhin and then on Rav Kook, who continued and developed the thought of his predecessor.
