    The Temple - a Place of Life

    The dry branch left in the Mishkan starts to blossom and grows almonds. This Holy place is the source of life and all who come there get a new life!

    Korach

    Preserving the Old, Inspiring the New

    Why did Moshe respond so differently with Korah and his gang than with Eldad and Medad? Regarding the latter, he prayed that everyone should be a prophet - yet with Korah, he was greatly angered at the claim that "everyone is equally holy." Why?

    Winners & Choosers

    In Parshat Shlach, the majority of the greatest spiritual leaders in the nation conclude that the time was not yet right to enter Eretz Yisrael. In Korach also goes against the Establishment. So how do we decide when to go against the grain, & when to respect the existing status quo?

    Korach's Drive

    Throughout the ages, the commentators have asked themselves the famous question "What drove Korach to commit such a foolish act?”

    To “Go Up” or Not Go Up, and the Land of Milk and Honey

    What is the significance of Eretz Yisrael being called flowing with milk and honey? This is the sign of agricultural blossoming in Eretz Yisrael.

    Korach

    Letter of the Law

    Korach’s argument presupposes that it is the reason behind the Law and not the Law itself that is ultimately binding. Moses, on the other hand, derives the law matter-of-factedly, the reason behind it playing no role in its obligatoriness.

    Are There Criteria for Rabbinical Judges in Israel? – part II

    Last week we saw that in addition to excellence in Torah knowledge, a dayan needs general knowledge, including in languages (Rambam, Sanhedrin 2). In Sanhedrin 2:7, the Rambam says: “And known by your tribes” – this teaches that the spirit of people must find them pleasant. “In what way will they be loved by others? When they possess a ‘good eye,’ a low spirit, they are good friends, and their speech and transactions with people are in a way that is pleasant.”

    Korach and Anti-Kere’ach People – Connection or Coincidence?

    Chazal explain that the significance of Korach’s name is that he made a korcha (lit., a bald spot) in Israel (Sanhedrin 109b), as his people were swallowed up (Rashi ad loc.). The Maharsha explains that his name became korcha in that no one would use it, as “The name of the wicked will rot.” We will explore a different significance and a connection to a much later generation.
