Item Description:

The Talmudic Rabbis teach that Samuel was equal to Moses and Aharon for his unification of the Jewish people and strengthening them in the path of Torah. Despite this, the Jewish people opted to replace him with a king, so he anointed the humble and righteous Saul. Saul's tragic descent is the result of human weakness in the face of power, an eternal and sobering moral lesson.
