Rabbi Yitzchok Etshalom
Talmud Torah 6:5
5. If three were walking together, the teacher walks in the
middle, the greater [student] on his right and the lesser
[student] on his left.
Q1: Why this order?
TP (Tzvi Pittinsky): This is a commemoration to how Moshe taught
Torah in the desert; (see BT Eruvin 54b) Aharon on his right
side, and Aharon's sons on his left.
