Prayer and Bittul Torah

What is the source that Tefillah overrides bittul Torah? Thanks.


The Gemara writes that we have to stop learning for the sake of prayer – with the exception of those whose “profession is their Torah study” – which does not apply to us (who waste plenty of time, even if occupied in full-time learning).

Best wishes.


See Mishnah, Shabbos 9b; Gemara 11a; Megillah 3a.
