Is sweeter then honeyDecember 12, 2021 2:45 pm at 2:45 pm #2040825
We ask Hashem to make the Torah sweeter than honey to us. Eating honey brings to a desire for more. If one understands the Torah, it should generate a desire for more learning. The Torah learning should bring us joy. BTW, your ‘then’ is misspelled as you don’t mean that you want honey afterwards.December 12, 2021 3:47 pm at 3:47 pm #2040833commonsaychelParticipant

As you are probably aware, we are loosing bee colonies at alarming rates due to what is known as “bee colony collapse”. The U.S. has lost nearly 1/3 of its bee colonies over the past decade due to viral infections and mite infestations. While the primary impact is on the pollination of fruit and vegetable crops, there is also an accelerating loss in honey production. This, in turn, will mean that yidden will have to increasingly turn to limud torah to compensate for their honey deficit.December 13, 2021 4:26 pm at 4:26 pm #2041225WolfishMusingsParticipant

If the table is like a miizbeach, how can we place honey on it? The honey used for Rosh Hashana is bee honey and what is forbidden on the mizbeach is dates honey.December 13, 2021 4:50 pm at 4:50 pm #2041232
The baalei asifa, the collectors of Divrei Torah are like bees collecting the honey.December 19, 2021 1:52 pm at 1:52 pm #2043152HaLeiViParticipant
Positive conversations can only go so far. So, here’s for a מחלוקת לשם…
Reb Eliezer, that’s ridiculous. Bees don’t collect honey.
