This is an excellent video. And in order to be a Torah teacher it is obvious that one has to study Torah, in all it's depth, to know what to teach. That is why the Yeshiva boys and Kollel men are considered to be the Leviim (even if they are not from Shevet Levi). And as you said the Levim of that generation did not listen to Pharoh and go build with him, today the yeshiva boys, who are the equivalent of the Leviim cannot listen to all those who would take them out of the yeshiva, and they must continue to study with a passion, even if it means being thrown into jail, G-d forbid.

Lori, this message was so full of passion for Torah, as if it came from the tent of our Matriarch Mother Sarah, I envision the daughter's of Zion dancing in a circle of unity, and I was there! Todah raba!

Become a Levi
Thank you, Lori. You have lit a light for me today at a moment when I was asking how should I live from now on, and thinking about being passionate about Hashem and Torah. I just finished having those thoughts and opened up my mail to this. The "coincidence" is unnerving.
