Rabbi Elazar said in the name of Rabbi Chanina: Torah scholars increase peace in the world, for it is said: And all your children shall be learners of the Torah of the Lord, and great will be the peace of Ba’na’ich – your children. Do not read Ba’na’ich, but Bo’na’ich – your builders. Those who love Your Torah have abundant peace within your walls, serenity within your mansions. For the sake of my brethren and friends, I ask that there be peace within you. For the sake of the House of the Lord our God, I seek your well-being. The Lord will give strength to His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace.
