Yeshiva WebsiteKorach's Fatal Error
Why do the Jewish people have to be pigeon-holed into various classes? Isn't equality the key to unity?
  • Our Strength is in Our Unity
    In Josephus' description of what happened after the destruction, he talks about the thickness of the stones in Jerusalem and the difficulty of destroying them. "I would never have been able to breach these walls if it wasn't for the Jews fighting among themselves and the disputes between them." About the unlimited power we can attain and about the havoc that controversy can cause.
  • The Prophet Shmuel "Caused" the Sin
    The Prophet Shmuel is the "cause" for the uprising by Korah and his gang. But if we look more deeply, we will see that Shmuel is also the rectification of Korah's sin! How so?
  • High-Sounding Words
    The rebellion of Korach is not a small offense but a great personal failing like the sin of the Golden Calf. It is a mortal blow to the continuity of the Jewish people and to its very survival.
  • When Truth Is Sacrificed to Power
    What was wrong with the actions of Korach and his fellow rebels? They had a point. Why was there a hierarchy, with Moses as leader and Aaron as High Priest?

  • How to Handle Disagreements
    Machloket (disagreement) is an inseparable part of the Jewish experience. Clarifying a matter and listening to the other side – yes! Personal insults and lack of respect toward the person with whom we disagree – no and, again, no!

    Blurring Differences
    What do Korach, Kayin and the Christians have to do with each other? And where is Korach manifested in our days?
  • Korach – He has a point
    One can define Korach's camp as an ideological group, except that it was tainted by the faults that bring down many failed ideologies.
  • 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!
  • 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?
