Mitzvah #45 - Stick with the Rabbi

It's a Mitzva to keep company with Torah scholars and their students.

Therefore one should try marry into Rabbinical families, and eat with them.

It's also a Mitzva to give Torah scholars gifts and other benefits.

One should endeavor to learn from their ways and their teachings.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always

Pasuk: "and stick with Him" (Devarim 10:20), from which we learn that keeping company with Rabbis is equivalent to keeping company with Hashem.
