Are you seeing the world through a distorted lens? What if your perceived weaknesses in others are reflections of your struggles? We're about to examine these concepts in an enlightening journey through the teachings of Rev Dessler and the Gemara in Kiddushin. This episode uncovers the psychological phenomenon of 'projection' and its impact on our self-perception and interpersonal relationships.We will shed light on how our thoughts, fears, and insecurities can be unwittingly projected onto others. Drawing from the iconic example of Korach's projection of his desires onto Moshe Rabbeinu, we'll explore the damaging effects of such behavior. The episode seeks to inspire listeners to go inward, suggesting that if a part of the Torah doesn't resonate, it could indicate a personal area needing growth. We'll guide you through practical techniques to recognize and manage your projections, giving you a powerful tool for self-improvement. So, prepare for a transformative exploration of the mind and its intricate workings.Support the showJoin the WhatsApp community for daily motivational Torah content!

In the beginning of parashat Vayelech . Moshe tells the people, today I am 120 years old, לא אוכל עוד לצאת ולבוא– I am no longer able to go out and come in. On the surface level, it sounds like Moshe was saying due to his old age he could no longer lead the people. However, Rashi writes, we know from a pasuk at the end of parashat V'zot Haberacha that Moshe remained strong and vibrant up until his last breath on this earth. Therefore, the interpretation of this pasuk is that Moshe was telling them he was no longer able to be their leader only because Hashem told him his time was up. Everybody has their time and they must take advantage of it while it is there. Some times are more optimal than others. The Midrash Raba gives a mashal to explain how it was possible that Moshe Rabbenu was not answered to be allowed to go into Eretz Yisrael. The parable is of a king who had a beloved friend who he appointed to be the chief officer over his palace. One day, this officer was seen outside the gate of the palace and was being denied entry. Nobody could believe it because just the day before he was in charge of everything that went on in that palace. And now, he wasn't even allowed in! The guard explained it was because his time was up. The king appointed a new chief and this man was reduced to just a commoner. Similarly by Moshe Rabbenu. Anything he said Hashem listened to right away. He said קומה ה' – Rise Hashem, he said שובה ה' – Return Hashem. He said to Hashem to open the mouth of the earth and swallow Korach, and so on, and Hashem acquiesced to all of his requests on the spot. But then, when Moshe wanted to go into Eretz Yisrael, Hashem denied him, and the reason was because his time of always being answered immediately was up. Moshe had his time and then it was taken away. The key in all situations in life is to be aware of the opportunities we are being given and capitalize upon them. We are now in the most spiritual time of the entire year. The month of Elul is auspicious for spirituality. Everything we do counts more. Our prayers are more readily accepted. What may take dozens of tefilot to accomplish during the rest of the year can be accomplished now with much fewer. Our learning is worth more, our mitzvot are worth more. A man was once walking with a great rabbi. It was Erev Rosh Hashanah in the morning and he turned to the rabbi and asked for some final words of inspiration before Rosh Hashanah. The rabbi said in a raised voice, “Elul stands for אני לדודי ודודי לי , there is an outpouring of love from Hashem in Elul.” The man was wondering why the rabbi would speak about Elul when the month was practically over and Rosh Hashanah was at their doorstep. The rabbi then repeated, “ אני לדודי ודודי לי . ” He said, “There are still a few hours left of this precious month. Go now and use them wisely.” With those words, the man started to cry. It was then that he realized the value of every moment in Elul. We still have one week left of Elul. Tonight is the final Shabbat of the year. Let us take advantage and keep it the way it is supposed to be kept. This year on Rosh Hashanah there is no shofar on the first day because it will be Shabbat. The shofar is what arouses the mercy of Hashem during judgment. If we treat Shabbat the way it is supposed to be treated, then Shabbat will advocate on our behalf and arouse Hashem's mercy instead of the shofar . This Shabbat is extremely important. If we haven't kept it until now the way we are supposed to, we can still fix it. We should accept upon ourselves to do our utmost to honor Shabbat, not to speak mundane speech, to adhere to all the halachot and learn extra Torah. This opportunity is still here. Let us grab it while we have it. Shabbat Shalom

Why did Moshe mention in the beginning of דברים the controversy of Korach before the Egel - didnt the Egel happen first? - great insight by Rebbe Reb Heshel of Krakow
Korach's rebellion claimed many victims: Some of the perpetrators were swallowed up in a miraculous sinkhole; some were consumed by a divine fire; and some were killed in a plague. In our Parsha, we discover that the sons of Korach did not die. Although they were participants in the rebellion initially, at the very last moment, they repented and were spared. In this Parsha Podcast we explore the fascinating story of the sons of Korach and discover a theme that appears in several other instances in our Parsha. At the risk of being overly presumptuous, I am confident that this podcast will prove to be both intriguing and deeply beneficial.– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –DONATE: Please consider supporting the podcasts by making a donation to help fund our Jewish outreach and educational efforts at https://www.torchweb.org/support.php.

Recording Available Via Telephone Dial: (605) 475-4799 | Access ID: 840886# | Reference #: 2387 The Toldot Adam in parashat Kedoshim writes, every single mitzvah carries with it a great segula . For example, tefillin gives life, shiluach haken brings children, and when a person does a mitzvah the correct way, purely l'shem Shamayim , then he is able to access its segulot . Furthermore, every mitzvah gives a spiritual uplifting to a person and has the power to bring him closer to Hashem. In this week's parasha , Korach and his entire family, with all of their wealth, possessions, belongings, slaves and maidservants, got swallowed up by the earth in a horrific way. The pasuk says, however, that the sons of Korach did not perish and the Yalkut Shimoni asks what their zechut was to be saved. It answers, it was one mitzvah. When they were sitting with their father, they saw Moshe Rabbenu approaching and immediately looked down. In their minds they were debating what to do, should they stand up for the Gadol HaDor and fulfill the mitzvah of מפני שיבה תקום ? Or should they respect their father and ignore Moshe? They then recalled the halacha which says that כבוד רבו proceeds the kavod of one's father. And so they stood up and honored Moshe Rabbenu. At that moment, they felt an inner purity and they were able to make teshuva on the spot. And that's how they were saved. The Imreh Yitzchak points out, this midrash implies they had no other zechut than this. It was just the performance of one mitzvah that gave them the spiritual energy to make teshuva and save their lives. The Shomer Emunim writes, when a person exhibits self sacrifice for a mitzvah, he gets a special outpouring of Divine assistance from Hashem. A regular person, with the performance of even one mitzvah with self sacrifice can gain more assistance from Hashem than even a tzaddik who is greater than him who did not have the same self sacrifice for that particular mitzvah. He writes further, if someone excels in believing in Hashem's hashgacha pratit in everything that goes on in his life, then in return Hashem will give that person extra special protection and assistance that he would not have been worthy of otherwise. To the extent that even if the entire world was experiencing a certain form of affliction, he would be singled out to be protected from it. Moreover, if he truly sees the Yad Hashem in every aspect of his life, in that merit, Hashem will do miracles and wonders on his behalf. This is the great segula that comes about from the mitzvah of believing in Hashem's hashgacha . Hashem's hashgacha is everywhere. It is up to us to recognize it. Chazal tell us even something so insignificant as a person putting his shirt on the wrong way is hashgacha pratit . When things go the way we want, even the simplest things, we should stop for a moment and say, “Thank You Hashem for helping us.” That will train us to believe everything is from Him. And if things don't go the way we want, we should also thank Him for giving us the kapara that we needed. The main thing is to recognize Hashem's involvement in everything that goes on and if we do that, b'ezrat Hashem, Hashem will do wonders and miracles for us. Shabbat Shalom.

Likkutei Sichos Korach: This class, in Likkutei Sichos vol. 4 Parshas Korach,will be presented on Thursday, Parshas Korach, 3Tamuz, 5783, June 22, 2023, at Bais Medrash Ohr Chaim in Monsey, NY. It was on Shabbos Korach 61 years ago, in 1962, when the Rebbe revealed the inner depth of what was Korach's mistake. As it turns out, Korach grasped one of the powerful ideas of Chassidus: The power of physical actions in the physical world. He glorified the technical and physicalrituals of Judaism. But when you lose the soul, you can end up in the abyss. The Rebbe, in this historical Sicha, explains the two common errors people can make: The mistakeof the spies who shunned the physical world; and the mistake of Korach who thought you can divorce Yiddishkeit from inner spiritual and emotional work.

Parshaperspective.com Our Parsha begins with Korach, a rich and influential man from the tribe of Levi staging a rebellion against Moshe and his brother Aaron. Together with a few ringleaders, he gathered 250 men and accused Moshe and Aaron of nepotism and power hoarding. They took specific issue with Moshe's appointment of his brother, Aaron, as the Kohen Gadol, the high priest. We find out what God said to Moshe and Aaron before trying to punish the Jewish people. We learn Moshe and Aaron's reaction to God's command!

Korach was a very talented man with a sterling pedigree. He was wise and clever and even had a degree of prophetic clairvoyance. Yet he blundered egregiously by launching a revolt on Moshe and Aaron. When we study what triggered this rebellion we find that Korach has a seemingly legitimate grievance. He believed - and honest assessors of the situation would agree - that he was mistreated by not being promoted to a post that he deserved. Why indeed was Korach passed over for this promotion? How should Korach have processed this insult? What is the proper way to respond to such slights?
