Shabbos 119 – שבת קיט

Abaye explained that the Torah of young children is greater since it is pure.  But don’t we generally say that one who is obligated (to do a Mitzvah) is greater than the one who isn’t?

One thought on “Shabbos 119 – שבת קיט

  1. One who is obligated does get more S’char than one who does when he is not obligated. Here we are talking about the fact that their Torah is pure and special.

    The Torah of children is not an extra credit. It is essential for the perpetuation of Torah. The Torah of your whole life stands on the pure Torah from childhood.
