Let My People Know

"One must not rest content with 'pious ignorance'"

“Torah-study is not just a way of gaining entrée to the other mitzvot, but a fundamental mitzvah in its own right, incumbent on every Jew as long as he lives.

One must not rest content with ‘pious ignorance,’ but rather strive for real achievement in the realm of Jewish learning, in all its branches.”

–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
