A peculiar way of teaching…

In Uruguay, a peculiar way of teaching:
“R. was a student of Prof Shoshani when he was a child in Uruguay. He is very much reluctant to speak about him. His father also studied with Shoshani. He tells a story that Shoshani was teaching his father and spitting on his face while studying. R.’s father asked Shoshani why was he spitting him and Shoshani replied: To see how much you really love the Torah.” (!!!)
