Tiferet Yisrael

“Do not say ‘When I have free time I will learn’, for you may never have that free time” — Hillel (Avot 2:4).

This is a warning to busy leaders and to anyone preoccupied with his activities. When he finds a little free time let him not say; “What can I learn in such a short time? When I have a big break, then I will sit down to learn”.

That break may never come. In the meantime, those fifteen minutes, a small fraction of your life that is only a long chain of such moments, has been lost to you forever.
