Who is considered to be greater between the Baal Shem Tov and the Vilna Gaon?
Was the Besht from one generation prior to the GRA?
Is this really necessary? Are we *really* going to get into “my gadol is bigger than your gadol?”
Rather you should ask yourself if you have any inkling about their greatness or even their talmidim.
Just to prove my point, we all know and agree the GRA was much greater then let’s say the Chazon Ish or the Choftz Chaim. Can you explain and describe with exactly what?
If you can’t then don’t waste your time on the above…
