Without Torah there is no Bread.
November 7th, 2006

Rabbi Elazar ben Azaria said:

Without Torah there is no social order;
without social order there is no Torah.

Without wisdom, there is no conscience;
without conscience, there is no wisdom.

Without knowledge, there is no understanding;
without understanding there is no knowledge.

Without bread, there is no Torah;
without Torah there is no bread.

(Avot 3:21)
