Who was Rabbi Akiva? Why does he place so much emphasis on love? How did his wife Rachel change the Torah world? Are we actually expected to love all people? How can we do that? Plus: Rabbi Shalom Brodt shares Reb Shlomo Carlebach's teachings on loving fellow man. Then: If Rabbi Akiva taught about love, why did his students die in a plague? Didn't they love each other?
