Once when the holy Divrei Chaim of Tzanz ZY”A returned from a trip to his Rebbe, Rebbe Yisroel of Rizhin ZY”A, the son of the Chasam Sofer, Rabbi Shimon Sofer, asked him why he travels to Rizhin. After all, theDivrei Chaim was a tremendous Torah scholar. Rabbi Shimon Sofer could not fathom why the Divrei Chaimwould need a Rebbe. Rabbi Shimon Sofer, himself, did not travel to the Tzadikim of his generation for thisvery reason.The Divrei Chaim responded that there are two mountains of importance in Judaism, Har Sinai and Har Hamoriah. Har Sinai represents the Torah and Har Hamoriah represents the sacrifice of Yitzchok. Onemight think that the Bais Hamikdosh should have been positioned on Har Sinai in order to honor the Torah.Yet, Hashem chose Har Hamoriah, the mountain of sacrifice, to establish His Bais Hamikdosh.Emphatically, the Divrei Chaim concluded by saying, “Now, when I saw the way Rebbe Yisroel of Rizhinsacrifices his every motion for the honor of Hashem. I reasoned that I am Har Sinai, an erudite Torahscholar. However, Rebbe Yisroel of Rizhin is a Har Hamoriah; his sacrifice for Judaism is exemplary.Hashem’s holy presence, therefore, resides upon this holy Tzadik
