This lecture delivered by Rabbi Elyahu Kin in 2009 discusses the subject of "Derech Eretz Kadma LaTorah" which is a Rabbinic aphorism for the norms of proper conduct that are axiomatic to Torah. Rabbi Kin explains how moral and ethical behavior along with good character traits are prerequisites to the Torah and the primary foundation of the essence of a person, without which a person is not worthy at all of Torah.
