Description
   Chasidic teachings following the weekly Torah portion. R. Eliezer ben Jacob Ha-Levi (Horovitz) of Tarnogrod (d. 1806), rabbi and Chasidic author, was a descendant of a famous rabbinic family. He was a disciple of R. Elimelech of Lyzhansk, R. Jacob Isaac of Lublin, and R. Israel of Kozienice. According to one of his sayings, even the greatest saint has to hide his own light to avoid the sin of pride.
