Annette asked:

Can you please quote the passage where it says: If you want wisdom turn to south. If you want to be rich turn to the north....

Thanks a lot for your help .I look forward to your answer.

The Kollel replies:

This is a statement of Rabbi Yitzchak, recorded in the Talmid, tractate Bava Basra, page 25b. The full passage is, "Rabbi Yitzchak said, 'One who wants to become wise should turn southward, and to become wealthy turn northward." The commentators explain that this refers to turning in these directions while praying. See our Insights (www.dafyomi.co.il) to that page where we discuss this passage.

All the best,
