I started laughing,
but now I realize
that on one hand I
was taught a les-
son that a tzadik
is not only one
who lives in Eretz
Israel and hides
from everyone but
it could be one
who lives a regu-
lar life and dedi-
cates his time to
Torah and mitzvot. On the other hand Rav Ahron Walkin taught me that a tzadik knows his greatness. That was what made him so great, he knew he was on a high spiritual lev- el, but it never got to his head. He didn’t belittle anyone who was below him. He was like the Aron Kodesh, golden outside and golden inside but simple like the wood in the middle. Rebbi always taught us that that's the way one should be.

Many years ago I was privileged to learn in Eretz Yisrael in Yeshiva Marbe Torah in Bnei Brak. I had a very heated dis- cussion with my chavrutah. He said that the Chazon Ish holds that if you sit and learn Torah, Hashem will send you a shidduch. You don’t have to go out and look for a shid- duch.
