Description
   Hasidic teachings following the weekly Torah portion. R. Eliezer ben Jacob Ha-Levi (Horovitz) of Tarnogrod (d. 1806), rabbi and hasidic author, was a descendant of a famous rabbinic family. He was a disciple of R. Elimelech of Lyzhansk, R. Jacob Isaac of Lublin (Hozeh), and R. Israel of Kozienice (The Maggid). His greatness can be glimpsed at with one of his teachings, "even the greatest saint has to hide his own light to avoid the sin of pride".
