The midrash says that Pinchas, (this parsha), and Eliyahu, prophet of Kings, are one and the same.

Moshe served dual major roles for bnei Yisrael. He was their teacher and their leader.

An opinion recorded in the Talmud states that prayers correspond to the daily sacrifices offered in the Temple that are mentioned in this week’s portion (Berachot 26b, Numbers 28:4).

If it is not prohibited when there is a purpose for inflicting the tza’ar, why was Bilam chastised for tza’ar ba’alei chaim?

Moshe’s punishment described in the parsha is most tragic. He was chosen to redeem the people, he loved them dearly and personally sacrificed so much for them.

The rock doesn’t have needs, yet it listens to Hashem. How much more so should we, who have so many needs?

How can we be certain that any animal can be counted toward ma’asar beheimah when perhaps it is a treifah?

Scientific disciplines don’t ask "why", a metaphysical question. They ask "how does it function?”

Leaders must be careful to subdue their ego. The cause is larger than the personal concerns of one person.

Known by all as a happy-go-lucky fellow, Yossel’s lackluster parnassah never got the better of him. His dejected-looking wife, however, hardly shared his simchas ha’chayim and Yossel would often attempt to cheer her with words of chizuk.
