Acharei Mot: Chapter 38

"A little city"


Rabbi Aba talks about the verse, "There was a little city, and few men within it," saying that there are few who deserve to live there, and that God comes to join with them and live there and protect it. There is a wise man who lives there, and he is wise because he studies the Torah and keeps its precepts. But his wisdom is despised, as people do not want to pay attention to the Torah.
