by Joel Rich

I hear a lot of discussion about spirituality in religion. I think R’A Lichtenstein’s piece from the Orthodox Forum (Law and Spirituality: Defining the Terms http://www.yutorah.org/lectures/lecture.cfm/725795/rabbi-dr-aharon-lichtenstein/law-and-spirituality-defining-the-terms/) makes a very important contribution to the discussion. I would summarize it as saying one should seek to daven like a chasid in the context of learning like a Litvak. The final line is “It is our mission to assure that legists and spiritualists both pray—on time.”

If Nimrod was the first king, was there private land ownership before his time. If yes, how was it established halachically (i.e., 7 mitzvot-wise).
