I am fairly stiff-necked. What I mean is that I don’t like to change. I like the idea of improvement and working on middos (thus my own gravitation towards Mussar), but this is mostly because I tend to resist change.
Last night I downloaded a shiur that, like it or not, is causing me to think about a number of things and might lead to change. If you’ve ever seen or heard Rav Avraham Schorr, then you know that he tends to tell it like its, but with a level of clarity that few have in our generation, IMHO.
The shiur I downloaded regarding Tisha B’Av is available from TorahLectures.com, here.
