Parsha Perspective

By Rabbi Yisroel Shusterman

This week’s Parsha Perspective is dedicated by Mr. Binyomin Philipson in memory of his late mother Mrs. Ellen (Elka bas Zisel) Philipson OBM

A life sentence for jaywalking? Twenty years for chewing gum in public? Singapore notwithstanding, surely that's over the top!

Well, was it so different for Moses, who, in this week’s Torah portion, Chukas, (Bamidbor [Numbers] 19:1-22:1), is punished and denied entrance to the Promised Land for the seemingly minor infraction of hitting a rock instead of speaking to it?

The people are clamoring for water in the wilderness. G-d tells Moses to speak to a certain rock (he was meant to ask nicely) and promises that, miraculously, water will flow from the rock. Commentary enlightens us as to the behind-the-scenes reasons for Moses striking the rock instead of speaking to it, but in the end the miracle happens anyway and the people's thirst is quenched.

If your average rabbi today would make a rock produce water, even if the rock needed more than mere gentle persuasion, surely it would be hailed as the greatest miracle of the century and the rabbi would win the Nobel Prize for chemistry. But for Moses it's a sin? Even if (as the Torah points out) it would have been a greater sanctification of the Divine had he only spoken to the rock, still, for such a minor infraction, such a severe penalty?

The answer, we are told, is that responsibility is commensurate with the individual. If a child messes up, it is entirely forgivable. For an adult who should know better, we are less likely to be as forgiving. Likewise, among adults, from a person of stature we expect more than from an ordinary fellow.

A blemish on a coarse garment is not nearly as bad as it is on a piece of fine material. A stain on a pair of denims is not only acceptable, it is absolutely desirable. In fact, some people pay a premium for pre-stained jeans. Put the same stain on a silk tie and it's simply unwearable.

Moses was like the finest silk and, therefore, even the smallest, subtle hint of sin was considered a serious breach of conduct and the repercussions were severe.

In one of Rabbi Dr. A. J. Twersky's early books, there is an exposition of the well-known Yiddish expression, "es past nit" -- "it is unbecoming." He writes that when he was a child and his father would admonish him for doing the something wrong, he would say "es past nit," i.e. for you, this sort of behavior is unbecoming. Not only did such a rebuke not shatter the child's self image, it reinforced it. A wise father was telling his child, "You are special, you are important; for someone like you this sort of conduct is unbecoming." There are behavior patterns that are not necessarily criminal or sinful. Yet for someone from an esteemed family background, es past nit, it is unbecoming. This was the kind of criticism that could actually build a child's self esteem.

How beautiful those words, for even in chastisement one can find validation and praise.

Moses was the greatest prophet that ever lived. For him, the standard could be no higher. Luckily for us mere mortals, we will not be held to that exalted benchmark. But we will be held to our own standard. The standard of Jews who were called upon by G-d to be "a kingdom of priests and a holy nation."

(Excerpts from Chabad.org - by Rabbi Yossy Goldman)

May you have a meaningful and uplifting Shabbos

Anash of Monsey mark Gimmel Tammuz

Over 150 men and women gathered in Monsey to mark Gimmel Tammuz with guest speaker Rabbi Isser Zalmen Weisberg at Khal Tzemach Tzedek Lubavitch.

The Farbrengen started with Master of Ceremonies Rabbi Yossi Krasnianski welcoming all of Anash to the event and Rabbi Boruch D. Lesches Mara D'asra of Tzemach Tzedek giving over warm divrei bracha.

He was then followed by the guest speaker, Rabbi Isser Zalman Weisberg of Lakewood, NJ, who kept the crowd at the edge of their seats as he recounted his fascinating journey to Chabad from the Litvishe Torah world. Rabbi Weisberg spoke about his tremendous hakoras hatov to the Rebbe who personally guided and encouraged him on a regular basis for many years until he fully developed his learning and writing skills to present the Rebbe's Torah in prestigious Torah publications. He concluded by sharing his perspective on the Rebbe's famous directive to bring Moshiach by using oros detohu bekeilim detikkun.

One yungerman commented, it's so refreshing to come to such a down-to-earth, genuine and "real" farbrengen which combined relevant guidance with so much inspiration.

The Farbrengen would not have been made possible without the organization of Rabbi Zalmen L. Markowitz and R' Yona Abenson, as well as the assistance of Hirshel Rosenbluh, Mendy Glick, Mendel Sandhouse and other anonymous people that greatly assisted in putting the event together. A special thanks goes to Shmuli Niasoff for putting together the audio and visual.

And last but not least, thanks to all the donors who made this event happen, starting from all of the local Chabad Shuls participating in the Farbrengen - Tzemach Tzedek, Beis Menachem, Beis MM Lubavitch of Pomona and Anash of Airmont.

Parsha Perspective

By Rabbi Yisroel Shusterman

This week’s Parsha Perspective is dedicated by Mr. Binyomin Philipson in memory of his late mother Mrs. Ellen (Elka bas Zisel) Philipson OBM

Moshe (Moses) was exceedingly distressed, and he said to the L-rd, "Do not accept the offering [of Korach and his cohorts]. I have not taken a donkey from a single one of them, and I have not harmed a single one of them." – Bamidbor [Numbers] 16:15

Humility was one of Moshe’s most outstanding qualities. In fact, the Torah affirms that "Moshe was exceedingly humble, more so than any person on the face of the earth." Yet, in this week’s Torah portion, Korach (Bamidbor [Numbers] 16:1- 18:32) when his leadership was contested by his scholarly and prodigious cousin Korach, Moshe responds with seemingly uncharacteristic righteous indignation. One would have expected Moshe to turn to Gd and say, "A-lmighty, perhaps You should consider allowing Korach to assume my position - he is far more qualified than me! I am more than happy to abdicate my position to the worthier candidate!"

A proper understanding of how the Torah views humility, as discussed at length in the talks of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, whose 22th Yahrtzeit is observed this weekend (Shabbat, 3 Tammuz  / June 9), will explain how Moses' reaction to Korach's uprising was not inconsistent with his exceptional humbleness.

True humility is not a result of an undervaluation of one's talents and accomplishments. Such is a false humility, for it is built on a false foundation. Rather, the truly humble individual is keenly aware of all his strengths and qualities - but simultaneously recognizes that all these talents are Gd-given, and therefore do not constitute a reason to feel superior to another whom Gd has not bequeathed such talents. "Perhaps," the humble person thinks, "if that person had been blessed with the same gifts, he would have accomplished the same as me - or perhaps even more!"

Moshe recognized that Gd had endowed him with tremendous leadership qualities, and he therefore absolutely rejected the notion of relinquishing his position to anyone. This cognizance, however, did not interfere with his genuine humility and respect for every Jew.

On a deeper level, the person who is entirely devoted to fulfilling the will of his Creator is naturally egoless, because he has no personal ambition - his goal is only to further Gd's "agenda" on this world. While arrogance is a sense of self-importance, dedication to Gd means realizing that life isn't about the individual or what he wants, it's about serving a higher purpose. Moses, despite all his greatness, of which he was keenly aware, was a dedicated servant of Gd. And when Korach sought to impede his fulfillment of his divinely ordained mission in life – shepherding the Jewish Nation – Moses responded by firing on all cylinders.

Many confuse humility with meekness. In truth, the humble person is very driven and will not stomach any opposition. But he is not driven by his own ego; he is driven by a desire to implement the Divine plan.

Parsha Perspective

By Rabbi Yisroel Shusterman

This week’s Parsha Perspective is dedicated by Mr. Binyomin Philipson in memory of his late mother Mrs. Ellen (Elka bas Zisel) Philipson OBM

Some conclusions are more obvious than others. Sometimes the most obvious conclusion isn't necessarily correct. Drawing our own conclusions can often be a risky business.
                                
Take the case of this week’s Torah portion Shlach (Bamidbor [Numbers] 13:1-15:41).The spies sent by Moses return from their reconnaissance mission of the Promised Land with a frightening report about the fierce, warrior nations of Canaan. The Jewish People are dejected, frightened, and even weep at the thought of their impending invasion, convinced it can only be a suicidal mission impossible. The Almighty is angered, the people are punished for their lack of faith in His promise and the spies go down in history as the villains in the story.

But why? What, in fact, was their sin? Moses asked for a report of the land. They came back and reported exactly what they had seen. They told no lies. The land was formidable. The inhabitants were huge and powerful. The fruits were extraordinarily large. They even brought back samples to prove it. So if it was all true why were they punished?

The answer lies not in the report but in their conclusion. The facts as the spies presented them were entirely accurate. The sin was their conclusion, "We will not be able to go up to that people, for it is too strong for us." Moses had sent them on a fact finding mission. Their job was to bring back information. Nobody asked them for their personal opinions. The whole point of their mission was to gather the data necessary for the Israelites to find the best way of conquering the land. That they would do so was a given. G-d had promised them the land, told them of its natural beauty and assured them of success.

The same G-d who just miraculously delivered you from Egypt, the mightiest superpower on earth, split the sea for you and revealed Himself in all His glory to you at Sinai has now said that the Promised Land is there waiting for you. And after all He has done for you; you turn around and publicly doubt His power to help you succeed? This is not only a mistake in judgment. This is shameful, sinful and faithless. The spies' report was correct but their conclusion was disastrous.

A high school teacher decided to demonstrate to his class the dangers of alcohol abuse. So he conducted an experiment. He took one glass of water and one glass of whisky. He then took a little worm and dropped it in the glass of water. The worm had a nice swim and then the teacher removed the worm unharmed. He then dropped the worm into the glass of whisky. In no time at all, the worm was dead. He then turned to the class and asked them what the experiment proved. Whereupon one wise guy at the back piped up and said, "Sir, it proves conclusively that if you drink enough whisky you will never suffer from worms!"

The facts are there for all of us to see. The question is how to interpret them. If we have a preconceived position and then manipulate the data to draw conclusions that suit us, we may come off clever at first but in the end we may well go the way of the spies. Without faith, even the most accurate information can lead to the wrong conclusion.

Parsha Perspective

By Rabbi Yisroel Shusterman

This week’s Parsha Perspective is dedicated by Mr. Binyomin Philipson in memory of his late mother Mrs. Ellen (Elka bas Zisel) Philipson OBM

This week’s Torah portion Beha’aloscha (Bamidbor (Numbers)8:1 -12:16) tells the story of a group of men who were unable to bring the Passover offering on its appointed time, and approached Moses with a sincere request: "Why should we lose out?" It so happened that these individuals had been occupied with a good deed - according to some it was nothing less than carrying the remains of Joseph from Egypt en route to his final resting place in Shechem in the Holy Land - and because of their contact with the dead, they were "ritually impure" and thus unfit to bring the offering.

Moses consulted G-d and was told that, in fact, the men were quite right. Henceforth, those who were ritually impure or far away at the time the Passover offering was brought on the 14th of Nissan would be given a second chance exactly one month later, on the 14th of Iyar to make good their lost opportunity.

There are many important lessons from this law, known as Pesach Sheini ("the Second Passover"), such as "It's never too late." There are second chances in life for all of us. Or, that G-d sometimes waits to see if we really want something badly enough to demand it and only then does He give it to us.

What those men in Moses' day did was actually quite inspiring. You see, they didn't really have to come and plead with Moses for a second chance. After all, they had the perfect alibi. They could have simply said, "Sorry, we were busy with another mitzvah." They were spiritually unable to participate. They had no reason to feel guilty. They couldn't be faulted.

Yet, it did bother them. They felt left out and genuinely desired to be together with their brethren in the observance of another mitzvah, the Passover offering. People who had every opportunity to be free of obligation and willfully choose to actively seek obligation are indeed deserving of honorable mention. It is right that they should be singled out in the Torah for their sincerity and devotion.

We're all very good at making excuses: It's too cold, too hot, too expensive, too difficult etc, etc. Too many of us take the path of least resistance. "The difference between a success and a failure is that a failure makes excuses and a success makes a plan."

Let's not look for excuses. Don't opt for the easy way out. Let us learn from the men in the wilderness who could have had every excuse in the book and yet happily chose to look for a new mitzvah and to share in the good deed of their community.

(Excerpts from Chabad.org - from Rabbi Yossy Goldman)


May you have a meaningful and uplifting Shabbos!

Mega Hakhel Event in Monsey this Sunday

In Monsey, this event will take place from 1:45 – 3:15 pm at the Tzemach Tzedek Shul, 2 Langeries Drive for all men, women and children.
