Aliyah Quote #11: "Eretz Yisrael has lost a great man."

Reish Lakish eulogized a Chacham that taught Mishnah - "Eretz Yisrael has lost a great man." Rav Nachman refused to eulogize a man that taught Mishnah, Medrash and Tosefta - "He is empty." See the difference between the mighty ones of Eretz Yisrael [Reish Lakish] and the Chasidim of Bavel [Rav Nachman]! (Megilah 28b)
