Show Notes

Today’s Torah content is sponsored by Avygayl Zucker in honor of the 90th birthday of her grandfather, Yedidyah Halimi, whose dedication to Torah and mitzvos continues to be an inspiration. May Hashem grant him many more years of health and happiness!

Synopsis: This is the audio version of the 1-page article I wrote entitled, The Madness of Lishmah, in which I reflect back on a conversation I had about my career path, in light of a poem by Rumi and an idea from the Rambam.
