Likutei Etzot (Compilations of Advice), Hospitality 1-2 (end)


1. Through bringing in true Torah scholars as guests into one's home, one merits faith and to break denial. Through that, the fallen Torah of the unfit Torah scholars, who are the aspect of Jewish demons, is fixed; all the opposition against those who fear HaShem comes from them, so through this, [inviting true Torah scholars], one merits to overpower the opponents. (From Likutei Moharan I, 28)

2. Bringing in Torah scholars as guests is a rectification for prayer. For everyone has bad prayers which confuse him when he stands to pray a prayer that is proper to pray. Bringing in a Torah scholar is a rectification for this. (From Likutei Moharan I, 209)
