Beautiful, relevant and on target! See the Sifsei Chaim on Lag B’Omer where he develops this approach to understanding the Cheit of The Talmidim of Rabbi Akiva.

We met in Eretz Yisrael when Sharyn P. and I visited. Your insights and message are powerful.  May I l extend your reach this Shabbat when I teach at a kehillah on Long Island? Kol Tuv.

how is it possible that this lack of kavod for one another, was something that Rabbi Akiva himself, couldn’t/didn’t rectify?
Something seems amiss r"l if 24,000 of Rabbi Akiva’s talmidim suffered from this malady!!! Torah he, v’lilmod ani tzorich.
