Lovely experience Wednesday night, thus:
I'm writing Torah at Drisha, because Student S is working on her first mezuzah and I want to be close at hand to field any questions. We have Scribal Zone going in the back of the beit midrash, very nice.
I'm writing parshat Metzora, around ch. 26 of Leviticus. Various sorts of impurities.
So happens that there's a learning session going on nearby; I'm vaguely listening to bits of their Torah floating over, and I realise that it just so happens they're learning parshat Metzora. So I'm writing this stuff with most of my attention, giving half an ear to the discussion going on nearby; precisely the same material I'm writing, but overlaid with traditional and modern commentaries tossed around by two very bright minds.
I've mentioned this before; I adore writing at Drisha, when I'm writing a piece of Torah and I hear people nearby talking about the same piece of Torah from the other side of thousands of years of rabbinic tradition. We're six feet apart and engaged with exactly the same thing, but in between us is the whole development of Judaism.
It blows my mind.
