Halocho #106 - Respecting Torah authority

This week's Parsha - Korach - teaches us the bitter end of people who argue with Torah authorities. A person has to respect and honor his Rav - his Torah teacher - more than his parents; his parents look after his needs in this world and his Rav is ensuring him a good place in Olam Habah (Heaven). Degrading a Torah scholar is so severe that a person can loose his place in Olam Habah (Heaven) for it. If a Torah scholar has goods to sell, he is given a monopoly until his stock runs out. This does not apply if the monopoly cannot be enforced.
