Present, Yet Anonymous

Posted on: February 7th, 2014

JudaismParsha

One of the most striking features of this week’s parsha is the absence of Moshe Rabbeinu's name, an omission which occurs only once from the beginning of Sefer Shemos until Moshe’s death at the end of Sefer Devraim.

JudaismParsha

One of the signs a diamond is real is that it has a flaw. While it may be a very minor imperfection and almost unnoticeable, all genuine diamonds have flaws.

Can A Non-Kohen Light The Menorah?

Posted on: February 6th, 2014

JudaismParsha

When the Rambam wished to give an example of how a non-kohen could light the menorah, why did he have to say that a kohen took the menorah outside of the Kodesh?

The Whole Is Greater Than The Sum Of The Parts

Posted on: February 6th, 2014

JudaismParsha

The Gemara mentions that the grape clusters refer to Moshe and Aharon, the paradigm of what a Jew can be. However, while it is important to treat the scholars like Moshe and Aharon with proper respect, one must not diminish the dignity of other jews who are not at that level. Without these Jews, the scholar could not reach his level.

Winston Churchill repeated a grade during elementary school. He twice failed the exam to the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst. He later wrote, “Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never – in nothing, great or small, large or petty – never give in except to the convictions of honor and good sense. Never, Never, Never, Never give up!”

Hashem’s House As An Address For Prayer

Posted on: January 30th, 2014

JudaismParsha

The notion of a Temple, as either a temporary dwelling or as a permanent building at a specific site, is inherently difficult to understand. How can Hashem, the paradigm of perfect sanctity, coexist with our mundane, flawed universe? Infinity with the finite?

Nachum was doing a research project on the Rambam for one of his courses. He borrowed a number of sefarim from his yeshiva's library for a month while writing the paper. When he completed the assignment, he gathered the sefarim together to return them to the library, but noticed that one sefer was missing.

G-d, accordingly, is encouraging Moshe to not just focus on reaching the top of the spiritual mountain but remaining there as well, thus fully capitalizing on his gains.

Who’s To Judge?

Posted on: January 24th, 2014

JudaismParsha

Once a person receives it, he becomes personally attached to the one who gave it to him - so attached that now he will view that person's position as his own... and a person does not see his own faults!

Must We Check For Treifos?

Posted on: January 23rd, 2014

JudaismParsha

This week’s parshah contains the source for the halacha of following the rov (majority). The pasuk states: “acharei rabbim lehatos.” The Gemara in Chullin 11a says that this pasuk is referring to the Sanhedrin where the halacha follows the majority opinion of the judges.
