Rabbi Moskowitz: On Ignoring a Bas Kol (Heavenly Voice)
Show Notes

This morning (6/3/22), in lieu of our usual Friday Q&A (which is not recorded), I decided to share some Torah from my rebbi, Rabbi Morton Moskowitz zt"l, who passed away on Sunday morning. I played an 8-minute recording of an idea Rabbi Moskowitz gave over on two stories from the Gemara in which a bas kol is ignored. We discussed this idea and its implications during and after the recording. Although there's a lot more to discuss here, it's clear that this was a fruitful and thought-provoking idea - as is true of many of Rabbi Moskowitz's teachings.
