Ein Yaakov – Lesson 158b – Rabbi Chanina Ben Tradyon and Rabbi Meir Baal HaNess

Speaker: Rabbi Zvi Aryeh Rosenfeld z”l.
00:00 – Rabbi Chanina ben Tradyon and his teacher, Rabbi Yosi ben Kisma. A warning that a person should not assume Hashem will protect from harm after He has decreed punishment.
08:32 – The passing of Rabbi Yosi ben Kisma and the execution of Rabbi Chanina ben Tradyon. “I see the parchment of the sefer Torah burning but the letters are flying toward heaven.”
14:18 – If a person is suffering, are they permitted to hasten their own death? Shaul HaMelech was permitted to take his own life to prevent himself from falling into the hands of the enemy.
*19:35 – A Roman soldier saved Rabbi Chanina from suffering and sacrificed his life. This soldier, by attaching himself to a tzaddik, achieved in one instant eternal reward that others strive for over an entire lifetime. This illustrates the power of attaching oneself to a tzaddik.
24:31 – Rabbi Meir Baal HaNess and his wife Bruria, who was the daughter of Rabbi Chanina ben Tradyon.
37:24 – The importance of being in Eretz Yisrael at the time of one’s passing. The burial of Rabbi Meir Baal HaNess in Eretz Yisrael.
