Parshas Korach: From Your Mouth To...

Parshas Korach is filled with mussar and lessons which literally flow out of every pasuk.  One of the more perplexing psukim comes after Hashem performs this unbelievable giluy Shechina and the ground swallows up Korach and his followers, who were rebelling against Moshe and Aharon.  Indeed, Moshe warns Bnei Yisroel to separate themselves from Korach, Dasan and Aviram because Hashem will “create a Nes, the ground will open up and swallow them alive”. (Korach 17:30) Upon seeing Hashem’s Nes, prophetically foretold by Moshe to demonstrate that all of Moshe’s teachings and directives were from Hashem, the very next day they are rebelling against Moshe again. (17:6)


Specifically, the pasuk says “the entire Bnei Yisroel complained that Moshe had killed the people of Hashem”.   How can this be happening?  Literally, the day before, when people claimed Moshe was acting on his own, Hashem swallowed up the rebels into the earth.  Had they not seen this? Had they learned nothing?  This is not the way of people.  Ordinarily if a child, student or other person commits a wrong and is punished, there is a lull of at least some days before they do the exact same thing again.  Let alone in the presence of the same leader, teacher or whoever is in the position of authority.  Did the entire nation really believe that Moshe had killed these people?  Were they angling to be the next group to be disciplined?


This question troubled me for some time until last year.  I was discussing this quandary with my son Chaim and he answered quite directly that “Bnei Yisroel had reason to believe this was true – that Moshe not only had a hand in the rebels being killed but had even dictated the method in which it would happen”.  As we discussed this further he pointed out that not only had Moshe foretold the precise manner in which Hashem would punish Korach and his followers but there was a much stronger suggestion of Moshe’s role in last week’s Parsha, Parshas Shelach.  Recall that in Shelach when the Meraglim brought back their slanderous report and Hashem told Moshe he would destroy them, Moshe’s plea was “the nations will claim you lacked the ability to bring them to Eretz Yisroel so you slaughtered them in the desert”.  (Shelach 14:16) Immediately after which, the Yud Gimmel Middos are recalled and Hashem pronounces “Vayomer Hashem, Solachti Kidvarecha”, I forgive them – according to your words. (14:20) In fact Hashem had fashioned an Onesh, a punishment precisely responding to Moshes plea – Don’t destroy them because the other nations will say Hashem lacked the ability to bring them into Eretz Yisroel.   And what Onesh did Hashem decree?  I will bring the nation into Eretz Yisroel (so the other nations cannot say I lacked the ability) but this generation will die out entirely in the dessert over the next 38 years.   Bnei Yisroel saw that Hashem responded and conformed the Onesh exactly to Moshes words. 


Fast forward to Korach and again Bnei Yisroel see the Onesh exactly as Moshe had foretold – that the ground would swallow Korach and his followers.  They assumed based on what they had seen that even if Hashem was performing the Nes, Moshe’s words mattered.  What he pled and foretold impacted the precise decree from Hashem.  So, they blamed him. Accusing him of having killed Hashem’s people.  Thinking that if Moshe had asked for them to be spared, perhaps that would have worked. Instead, with Moshe promising that they would be swallowed up, their fate was sealed, by Moshe.  Faced with a choice of accepting responsibility or fostering blame, it’s always easier to blame others for our missteps.  Instead of seeing Moshe as Hashem’s messenger carrying out divine decrees, it was easier to blame the messenger for their plight.  We all have this innate ability to see things through our own eyes or with wishful thinking.  But we cannot blame the world, anything or anyone else for our challenges – be it antisemitism, war or a pandemic.  We must understand that these are Divine decrees, and our actions are factors in bringing about both the decree and the Refuah.

At least one person was shot at Pikesville's Bonnie Ridge Apartments, off of Smith Avenue, around rush hour Thursday. Baltimore County police responded to a report of a shooting at about 5:40 p.m. in the 6000 block of Copper Ridge Drive. They did not immediately provide more information. A resident told WMAR that she saw the shooting victim and tried to help him. She noted she was from Chicago and was used to frequent violence, but the shooting at Bonnie Ridge was highly unusual.
I was coming down Bonnie Ridge and I got a call from my son. He was frantic, screaming on the phone, 'Hurry, get home, there's a shootout.' And I didn't understand what he was saying.
Robin Mosley said she found the shooting victim leaning up against anothe...

We have just begun the month of Tamuz. It is taught that this month — תמוז, serves as an acronym for the sentiment — זמני תשובה ממשמשין ובאין — the season of repentance is materializing and approaching. In three months, we will be blowing the Shofar. We will be reciting seven times, one of the chapters of Tehillim composed by the ‘sons of Korach’. The late great Posek and leader, Rav Yosef Shalom Eliyashiv, cites a Midrash that describes how Moshe and all the other great sages came forward to hear the שיר ידידות — song of endearment, the sons of Korach expressed after being swallowed up into the earth, and although poised to fall into the gates of Gehinom, aroused themselves at the last minute to repent and sing this m...

Marylanders woke up this morning to higher gas prices. Because of a state law that went into effect July 1, overnight, the state gas tax increased 18% to 43 cents. It adds 7 cents a gallon to the price at the pump. With prices already high, several state leaders are calling for another tax holiday to bring some relief. Yesterday, Gov. Larry Hogan released a video and statement calling on state leaders to take action, hold a special session and vote for another holiday. “There is no reason why we cannot come together to provide much-needed relief for the crushing costs of gas burdening Marylanders,” wrote Hogan. Comptroller Peter Franchot, who is running for governor, also tried to get another holiday in place to prevent the increase. However, the leaders of the Maryland ...
