Taste of Hebrew title graphic


January

Aizehu chachám?  Ha-loméd mi-kol adám
(Ashkenazi: 'Aizehu chóchom? Ha-lóhmed mi-kol ódom)
'The wise learn from everyone.'


Literally 'Who is wise?  Someone who learns from everyone.'  This Talmudic maxim is a reminder that the wise and learned, though in many ways the Jewish elite, cannot live apart from the community.  Wisdom is with the people.
