Parsha

At the end of last week’s Parsha, the pasuk [verse] says, “And Pinchas ben Elazar saw…” [Bamidbar 25:7]. The Medrash Rabba on those words asks, “and did not everyone else see the same thing as well?” The Medrash answers that Pinchas’ uniqueness was that when he saw what was happening, he remembered a halacha: A zealot may mortally attack one who publicly has relations with an Aramean woman. (Ha’boel Aramis Kanain pogin bo.)

The Medrash adds that Pinchas met resistance from the people, who did not want him to proceed with killing one of the princes of Israel, the leader of the Tribe of Shimon. Pinchas somehow overcame the resistance of the people. Then when he approached the two perpetrators, the guards to the tent asked him: “What are you

When should you speak out and when should you remain silent? To what extent do you have to take responsibility and when should you remain passive? In our culture, it is politically correct to mind your own business, keep your nose clean and not become enmeshed in situations that are sensitive and difficult. Our parsha teaches us differently.

In this week’s parsha, we encounter Balak, King of Moab, who was determined to wipe the Jewish people off the face of planet earth, joining forces with Bilaam, the infamous heathen prophet, who was equally obsessed with hatred of our people.

“My nation, remember what Balak the king of Moab advised and what Bil’am the son of Be’or…answered him in order that you may know the compassionate righteousness of the Lord” [Micah6:5]

Who, or what, defines Israel, and why does it matter? If deeply concerning trends continue in the United States, research and ample anecdotal evidence indicate that those succeeding in affecting views toward Israel are the very people who attack it as a racist, discriminatory occupier lacking any moral or

This week we read the parsha of Chukas. “Zos chukas haTorah asher tzivah Hashem (this is the ‘chok’ of the Torah that Hashem has commanded) [19:2].” The Torah is filled with many different types of commandments. There are those that make sense to us and those which do not. The understanding of the ‘chukim’ is beyond us. Our parsha begins with the laws of the para adumah — the red heifer that purified those who had become ritually impure by coming in contact with a corpse.

Why didn’t the parsha
