Todays eMussar Lesson 16th Tishrei 5770

 

eMussar Lesson 16th Tishrei, 5770 –
The Gratitude Ideal

Todays eMussar Lesson

eMussar – The Wisdom of Personal Growth
A daily inspirational, concise idea, with a suggested action.

PARSHA INSIGHTS\THE LIGHT OF MUSSAR\MATTOS

HaShem instructed Moshe to avenge Midian, for bringing harlotry upon the People of Israel. However, Moshe appointed Pinchas to fulfill this task. Why did Moshe elect not to directly avenge Midian?

Many years before this occurred, Moshe fled for his life from Egypt to Midian. He met his wife and lived there for some time. Since, Moshe had once lived in Midian; he felt that he owed them a debt of gratitude. Therefore, he ruled that it was inappropriate for him to take action against Midian.

However, Moshe lived in Midian forty years earlier. Moreover, when Moshe lived in Midian, the inhabitants did not actively welcome him to their country. What’s more, the situation drastically changed. Now Midian caused great damage – spiritually and physically – to the People of Israel. Is he still required to show them gratitude? Isn’t it more important to bring them to justice than to continue holding appreciation for them in his heart?

Rather, Moshe understood that it is fitting to have a sense of gratitude for the kindness of others, regardless of time or circumstances. Therefore, he considered himself bound to show them special favor indefinitely – and unconditionally. Moreover, even if the kindness was indirect, appreciation is proper.

For instance, some of the plagues that HaShem brought upon the Egyptians required Moshe to first “hit the river.” However, when he was a baby his sister hid him in the river from the Egyptian soldiers who were ordered to kill every male baby. Effectively, “the river saved Moshe’s life.” Since Moshe owed a debt of gratitude to the river, he asked Aaron to hit the river in order to initiate those plagues.

May we develop and maintain a sense of gratitude for those who help us. In turn, our appreciation will bring us great joy and peace to the world.
[Based on Chidushie Lev of Rav Alter Chenoch Leibowitz]

Teachings of the Sages 16th Tishrei 5770

 

Teachings of the Sages – 16th Tishrei, 5770

Two Tzadiks

ON GOOD AND EVIL

“And Yaacov called to his children and said to them, ‘Gather together and I will reveal to you what will be your lot in the end of days.’ So they gathered together and they listened to their father Yisrael” (Genesis 49:1-2). What was the character of this gathering? R’ Pinchas of Koretz, a student as well as a colleague of the Baal Shem Tov, suggested that this gathering can be explained by the Talmudic expression, ‘Aseh oznecha k’afarkesis.’ (Make your ears like a funnel. Strain your ears to hear?listen well to what is being said. Chullin 89a). He explained in the name of his friend and fellow student of the Baal Shem Tov, R’ Nachman of Horodenka, that sometimes there is a limit to what can be accomplished by Yisrael even through prayer. A Jew’s transgressions simply make it impossible for him to bridge the distance between himself and the Creator. What can be done? The distance can be bridged only in one way; by every Jew joining together, hand in hand until this Jewish chain reaches all the way to the Throne of Glory. Then Hashem surely will not be able to ignore our entreaties. This is the meaning of “Aseh oznecha k’afarkesis.” Jews need to learn from the Tribes, the sons of Yaacov who gathered together to hear their revered father’s final words, to consolidate all their ears together until they become one enormous ear. Such an ear is surely capable of hearing everything. Since the Talmud says, ‘All Jews bear ultimate responsibility one for the other’ (Shavuos 39a), in this way nothing will be missed, no nuance neglected. The lessons needed to be learned will be grasped, and we will always be able to help each other to go in a proper path of Divine Service”*

THE POWER OF SPEECH – Guard your tongue

Speaking derogatorily about other people reinforces the hold of fantasy and illusion over us. When people use bad language and speak derogatorily about others, their spiritual awareness and understanding are withdrawn from them and they fall from the love of G-d and descend into animalistic passions and desires. The source of these passions and desires is man’s faculty of imagination, which is part of his animal nature. Imagination feeds on falsehood and slander and is directly opposed to the faculty of memory with which we keep our true situation in this life and our eternal destiny in the forefront of our minds.

Those who abuse language fall into forgetfulness, which is the death of the heart. Their heart dies within them and they never remember that the true goal of our life in this world is the eternal life of the world to come. Such people are dead even in their lifetime, because they have no conception of their true goal and purpose.

Likutey Moharan I, 54

Rabbi Nachman of Breslov
“It is a great mitzvah to be happy.”
