Inspiration with Reb Shea Rubenstein - Ep.9

Origins of a Gadol

Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Aurbach already displayed the signs of being a gadol by the tender age of 13. It is told that there was a bar mitzvah bachur who was not so popular, so a classmate decided to give him the proper recognition by purchasing a sefer and subscribing that it was a gift from the whole class. Years later when the sefer was in auction, it was revealed that Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Aurbach was the "Shlome" that took it upon himself to elevate a classmate.

Some Gadolim are molded through years of intense study, and some, like Rabbi Aurbach, appear to just be born with the mindfulness and sensitivity it takes to be a gadol hador
