Michtav Me’Eliyahu


While studying Michtav Me’Eliyahu, by Rabbi Dessler, I came across the terms “gadlut d’mochin” and “katnut d’mocin” several times. What do these terms mean?

  1. I respect you for studying this important collection of writings by Rabbi Dessler. The book has been translated and published in English under the title “Strive for Truth”.

    Regarding the terms you ask about, Gadlut d’mochin means the highest level of understanding, and katnut d’mochin means the lowest level of understanding.
