Sunday’s Salanter Selection

Rabbi Yisrael Lipkin of Salant

Man must give priority to the soul over the body with respect to himself; but must not overlook the body where someone else is concerned, since the next person’s physical [gashmiyus] are his spiritual [ruchnius] affairs.
From Tenuas HaMussar (The Mussar Movement)

For an excellent treatment of this topic, I happily suggest taking a look at R Micha Berger’s post, here.

    Blogspot doesn’t take pingbacks from outside blogs.

    So, I’ll have to manually tell people that I linked here from this post on Aspaqlaria. No information added, just links back to my earlier yahrzeit posts.
