As we saw before, Hashem made a covenant with the Jewish people to support Torah, and they all said blessed is he who supports Torah, and cured is he who does not support Torah. Since the evil inclination generally doesn’t succeed in tempting Torah scholars to stop their leaning, it channels its energy to deter working people from supporting the Torah scholars, thereby forcing them to detract from their learning. This is something very fearful, for our Sages warned us, If you see whole communities being uprooted, know that it is because they did not support Torah learners and teachers. Each person should be very wary of becoming lax in this area, as our whole religion is based on it.
ד׳ בסיון ה׳תש״פ
"והאמת בלתי שום ספק כלל, שאם היה העולם כולו מקצה עד קצהו פנוי חס ושלום אף רגע אחד ממש מהעסק והתבוננות שלנו בתורה, כרגע היו נחרבים כל העולמות, עליונים ותחתונים, והיו לאפס ותוהו חס ושלום". (נפש החיים) 1
