1:9:23 – not sharing

Hygros ben Levi excelled in the art of singing but would not teach others. It is told of him that when he was about to make a high trill, he would put his thumb into his mouth, place his index finger between the two parts of his mustache, and produce all kinds of sounds at such high intensity that, to a man, his brother priests would be thrown backward

When we fail to teach others, we repel them.  In the dark days of exile, we have a responsibility not only to learn, but teach.
