    Elijah and the Still, Small Voice

    Love-Based Zealousness

    The main story in this week's Torah portion is how G-d blessed Pinhas for stabbing to death two public sinners, in his zeal to protect G-d's name from desecration. This blessing is particularly noteworthy, for the Torah specifically mentions that Pinhas was the grandson of man-of-peace par excellence Aharon HaKohen. Do peace and zeal truly come together?

    A Man Of Spirit

    An artist may be able to create without knowing how to teach others how to create. That doesn't make him less of an artist. But even if an artist is not a great teacher, given a pupil of spirit, that pupil will flourish with very little instruction. Yehoshua's was like the Moon. Because he was 'a man of spirit', he shone from the inspiration of his teacher Moshe.

    Pinchas' Law

    At times and as proven by Pinchas, an act of violence or war is justified and necessary, to make peace. If the Allied Forces had not intervened and declared war against Nazi Germany and Japan, can anyone imagine our lives today, if at all we would have survived?

    Justifiable Homicide

    There are those amongst us who abhor violence at all costs, in all circumstances. Apparently, these murmurings against Pinchas,were so strong that the Lord had to "intervene" to defend Pinchas and highlight the justification and necessity of his act.

    Name That Hero

    The name of this week’s protagonist, Pinchas, is quite fascinating, for it contains within it another well-known name: Noach. What is the connection between the two?

    Lessons of a Leader

    The Parsha of Pinchas contains a masterclass on leadership, as Moses confronts his own mortality and asks God to appoint a successor. In the case of Moses, the Sages sensed a certain sadness at his realisation that he would not be succeeded by either of his sons.

    Tirtza – The Story of a Forgotten Capital City

    The daughters of Tzlofchad, discussed in the parasha, are symbols of righteous women, in whose merit Bnei Yisrael left Egypt and arrived in Eretz Yisrael. One of the five daughters was Tirtza. Tirtza was also the name of the capital city of the northern Kingdom of Israel.
