Daily Emunah Podcast - Daily Emunah By Rabbi David Ashear

Part of the glory of emunah is that a person is able to feel accomplished in every circumstance that he finds himself in. If the person does his best to perform in any given circumstance with the knowledge that Hashem put him there for a reason and he acts in the way that he thinks Hashem wants him to act, then he will be doing avodat Hashem in every circumstance in life. Even what appears to be the most mundane chores are in reality just more ways for us to serve Hashem, and if we view them like that we will always feel accomplished. The mefarshim tell us, when the Jewish people were working with back breaking labor in Mitzrayim , the angels in Shamayim were in agony that the children of Avraham, Yitzchak and Yaakov had to suffer like that. However, after they left Mitzrayim with all the wealth of Egypt, the angels were in such joy. The Gemara says that the money that the Jewish people received was their payment for all the work that they did over the 210 years. Then Hashem commanded them to make a Mishkan in which His Presence would dwell. The cost of the materials necessary for Mishkan were astronomical, but the Jewish people were easily able to afford it because of the money they got in Mitzrayim . When it was finally complete, they saw the Aron and the Keruvim and all the other utensils and they marveled at their beauty saying, “It was worth the effort of every brick we had to produce in Mitzrayim to merit the construction of this Mishkan .” If Hashem would have told them in advance, before they went to Mitzrayim , that all the work they would do would enable them to be able to build a house for Him in which He would permanently dwell with them, it would have been a completely different experience. They would have felt that they were putting forth self-sacrifice in the service of Hashem every day and they would have done it with joy. Every brick that they had to lay would have been viewed upon as another tool in their service of Hashem and that would have given them so much chizuk . In reality, that is what was happening, but for reasons that only Hashem knows He did not inform them of that. Based on this, Rabbi Menashe Reizman gave a new explanation for the words in the Haggadah: עבדים היינו לפרעה במצרים ויוציאנו משם – we appeared to be slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt and Hashem took us out of that false premise, He revealed to the people that they were really working for Him all those years and He showed them all of the other tikkunim and accomplishments that they made by experiencing that bondage. This is the way it always is. Wherever we are, we are working for Hashem. He is our only boss. And in every situation we find ourselves in, there is an avodat Hashem to be done. Our job is to go through our experiences with emunah, recognizing that they were planned for us by Hashem and to always think, How would Hashem want me to act now? If we do this, we will always feel accomplished and we will earn unimaginable rewards for serving Hashem all day long, every single minute of our lives.

Recording Available Via Telephone Dial: (605) 475-4799 | Access ID: 840886# | Reference #: 2397 In the beginning of this week's parasha, Pinchas, the Torah tells us about the rewards that Pinchas received for his great acts of zealousness, killing Zimri and stopping the plague from the Jewish People. One of the rewards that he received was ברית כהונת עולם , that Pinchas would be an eternal Kohen. The obvious question is that Pinchas's father, Elazar, was already a Kohen and his grandfather Aharon was already a Kohen, so why was becoming a Kohen a reward? Seemingly, he was a Kohen already. Rashi quotes from the Gemara that when Aharon became a Kohen, that honor was given to him and his children and anyone born after that. Pinchas, however, was a grandchild who was already born at that time and therefore he was excluded from it. All the grandchildren born after that were all born Kohanim . Imagine how difficult it must have been for Pinchas growing up in a family of Kohanim while he was the only one not a Kohen. All of his relatives were able to do the avodah in the Mishkan , but he wasn't. All of his relatives were able to eat teruma but he wasn't. All of his relatives were able to do Birkat Kohanim , but he was not. In general, if a person is lacking something in life, he is able to deal with it. But when everyone around that person has the item he is lacking, it makes it so much harder to deal with. If someone is not married, it is very difficult, but if that person is the only one from all of his or her friends who is not married, it becomes so much more difficult. The same applies if someone was not zocheh to have children yet. When they have to attend holiday meals and see everyone else with their families and children, it makes their problems so much bigger. Many people have enough money to live a standard life, putting food on the table, and paying for a roof over their head, but when they see all of their friends and neighbors building beautiful homes, traveling on exotic vacations and driving luxurious cars, they become so down about their lot in life. Why can't we have more? They think, what are we doing wrong? In the future, Hashem is going to show each person why he had the exact life that he was given. At that time, the person is going to thank and praise Hashem for everything that He gave him. He will understand why he had the amount of money that he did. He will understand why he lacked certain things in life. It will be so clear that he will wonder how he could have ever thought otherwise. From our vantage point, some things may even seem cruel now, but that is only because we are unable to see the complete picture. The Rishonim tell us, if Pinchas would have become a Kohen when Elazar and Aharon became Kohanim , then when he did his heroic act of zealousness, he would have become a disqualified Kohen because a Kohen who kills becomes invalid to do the avodah . Hashem, in His infinite mercy and compassion, waited until after Pinchas did his great deed and only then did He bestow the title of Kohen upon him. That is something nobody could have known. While Pinchas was growing up, people may have looked upon him with feelings of pity that he was the only one not a Kohen, but that is because they didn't know what Pinchas was destined for. There is always a much bigger picture in life, way more than meets the eye. If we are able to have emunah in Hashem and feel happy that He gives us exactly what we need, then we will be doing one of the greatest services possible. That emunah will also help us in our own lives immensely. And it is what Chazal tell us will be the zechut for our final geula . May it come speedily, Amen. Shabbat Shalom.

Parashat Korah- Diffusing Tensions

Insight of the Week

Play Episode Listen Later Jun 20, 2023


Parashat Korah tells the story of the uprising led by Korah against Moshe Rabbenu. Korah assembled a group of 250 followers and challenged Moshe, charging that he had no right to appoint his brother, Aharon, as Kohen Gadol. In response, Moshe invited Korah and his followers to a “test” of sorts. He told them that the next morning, they should all come to the Mishkan with pans containing fiery coals. They – together with Aharon – would then place incense on the coals as an offering to Hashem. The one whose offering was accepted, Moshe said, would be confirmed as the chosen Kohen Gadol. The next day, the rebels showed up at the Mishkan and offered incense. Tragically, just as when Nadab and Abihu – Aharon's two older sons – had perished when they brought an unwarranted incense offering (Vayikra 10:1-2), these 250 men were consumed by fire (16:35). We can gain insight into Moshe's handling of the situation by noting a subtle difference between the two occasions when he gave instructions to Korah and his men. Initially, when they first confronted Moshe, he told them to bring pans, place fire on them, and then offer incense (“Take for yourselves pans…and place fire in them, and put incense on them” – 16:6-7). Later, however, just before they brought their offering, Moshe told them simply to place incense in pans, without mentioning fire (“Each of you should take his pan, and place incense on them” – 16:17). It seems that Moshe changed his mind, and decided that Korah's followers should bring incense on its own, without burning it on fiery coals. The Maharil Diskin (Rav Yehoshua Leib Diskin, 1818-1898) explains that Moshe did not, at first, expect Korah and his followers to accept his challenge. Moshe told them to bring an incense offering with fire figuring that they would then desist, as they surely remembered what happened to Nadab and Abihu when they brought an unwarranted incense offering. The intention was not to have Korah's followers killed, but to the contrary, to save their lives by convincing them to withdraw. But when he later saw that these men accepted his challenge, and prepared to “compete” with Aharon for the privileges of the kohen gadol , Moshe hoped to save their lives by instructing them to bring incense without fire, which would not result in their death, as this does not qualify as an actual incense offering. Unfortunately, the 250 men did not listen, and they placed incense on fire (16:18), resulting in their death. Moshe's intention throughout this episode was not to win, or to hurt his opponents. He wanted to diffuse tensions so that everyone would live safely and peacefully. This can be seen also in Moshe's reaction to the other participants in the rebellion. Moshe decreed that if Korah, Datan and Abiram were wrong in their accusation that he was selfish and nepotistic, then the ground should open and devour them alive – which, of course, is what happened (16:30-32). It has been explained that Moshe specifically said that the rebels should be devoured alive – rather than perish and then fall underground – so that they could be rescued if they repented at the final moment. Indeed, the Sages teach us that Korah's sons, who had participated in the uprising, entertained thoughts of remorse and repentance as they fell into the underworld, and G-d miraculously made a ledge for them where they landed, ultimately surviving. Moshe hoped that Korah himself, as well as Datan and Abiram, would also be rescued in this manner. Tragically, however, they insisted on opposing Moshe until the very end, and so they perished. When we find ourselves in an argument, our instinct is to persist, to continue fighting, to stubbornly adhere to our position and our cause even when, as in the case of Korah and his followers, we see very clearly that we are hurting ourselves in the process. The story told in this Parasha teaches us how to properly handle Mahloket (fights and arguments) – by working toward a peaceful resolution. Our response should be not to try to win and defeat the other party, but to end the fight as quickly and smoothly as possible, and minimize the harm inflicted on everyone involved. The goal should be to diffuse tensions, to restore peace, and not to prove the other side wrong.

Attorney Elan Carr was the Special Envoy for Monitoring and Combating Anti-Semitism under President Trump. In Israel for his daughter's Bat Mitzva, the extended family toured Tel Shilo with Eve Harow after a delicious lunch at the Psagot Winery. He speaks with Eve about his US army service in Iraq, where his family fled 70 years ago, Iran, BDS, and his current work. The scourge of Israel hatred is a warning sign to all good people, not our problem alone. Then, an audio recording of an exclusive tour earlier in the day -on site - of exciting new findings at the Tel given by none other than archaeologist Dr. Scott Stripling. Kosher animal bones, a scarab, bullae, Second Temple era pottery and so much more. A building with the exact dimensions of the Mishkan was just unexpectedly found inside the city walls. Could it be? Tune in. Stay tuned. Photo: Elan Carr, Scott Stripling and Eve Harow at Tel Shilo on June 19, 2023

Parshaperspective.com Our Parsha starts with G-d telling Moshe that Aaron's job is to light the Menorah daily in the Mishkan (the Tabernacle).  G-d then gave Moshe the instructions for how the tribe of Levi had to purify themselves before working in the Mishkan. We see God's reaction to Miriam speaking ill of Moshe, her brother. We learn the negative consequences of excessive praise. 

Daily Emunah Podcast - Daily Emunah By Rabbi David Ashear

At the end of this week's parasha Naso , the Torah goes into great detail regarding the donations that the Nasi'im brought to inaugurate the Mishkan . And as we know, each Nasi brought the exact same donation and the Torah repeated each one of them, twelve times, one for each Nasi . Many mefarshim offer explanations as to why the Torah has all this repetition. The sefer Darkeh Musar brings from the Saba m'Kelm who explained, the Torah is teaching us here how Hashem relates to the individual. One should not think if a large group gets together to do a mitzvah that Hashem views it as if that group, so to speak, all got a check for their actions. The parasha of the Nasi'im teaches us, Hashem is happy with each individual separately. Although they all brought the same donations and collectively comprised a group of twelve, Hashem took delight in each one of them independently. Each one of them brought Hashem a different type of joy, depending on the person's background and what each of them had accomplished and experienced in their lives prior to this point. Everyone is always treated as if he is the only one in the world. And this does not only apply when a group of people get together to do a mitzvah. This is always the way it is. When something happens to a group of people, Hashem doesn't deal with them as a group, but rather every single person, with his own hashgacha . Whatever happens to him was decided solely based on what was supposed to happen to him. And the way a person reacts when things happen to him will show how much he really believes in Hashem's hashgacha . The Shomer Emunim writes, if we would know how valuable it is to honestly believe that every single thing that takes place in our lives comes directly from Hashem, our hearts would ignite with endless excitement. Furthermore, the pasuk says, ה' צילך – that Hashem is our shadow. And the Baal Shem Tov explained this to mean that Hashem acts towards us corresponding to the way we act towards Him. If a person says each time that something happens that it was from Hashem, then Hashem will deal with him with extra hashgacha pratit . He will be able to feel Hashem's presence more and he will get more Heavenly help. The pasuk says in Tehillim , ה' משמים השקיף על בני-אדם לראות היש משכיל דורש את אלוקים – Hashem is watching to see who is wise enough to seek Him out. The word אלוקים represents טבע which is nature. And as we know, הטבע is the same numerical value as אלוקים . So the pasuk is saying, Hashem is watching to see who will find Him inside of nature, who will attribute what seems to be natural occurrences, to Him. For this, a person must train himself until instinctively, he is able to say about everything, “That was m'et Hashem.” When someone becomes a person who is fully ma'amin in Hashem's constant hashgacha , he will never get angry, he will never have animosity towards anyone, he will save himself from countless averot and he will get a mitzvah aseh each time he believes in Hashem's hashgacha , based on the pasuk, אנכי ה' אלוקיך אשר הוצאתיך מארץ מצרים. The Shomer Emunim gives the following words of chizuk to help strengthen us in this area. He writes, fortunate is the person who is constantly strengthening himself in the area of emunah called hashgacha pratit , because the reward for it in this world is that Hashem will show the person ניסים ונפלאות – miracles and wonders. And therefore, our job as religious Jews is to look at every single thing that takes place in our lives, whether it is obvious good or whether it seems to look bad, and attribute it to Hashem and know that it is absolute good and praise and thank Him for it. We constantly needed to be reminded about this great avodah . May Hashem help us to always see His hand in everything that takes place. Shabbat Shalom.

We find out what the priestly blessings are. We learn why love is essential to our connection with God.
