Perek Shirah: Swim With The Fish, Listen Carefully For Directions

The Siach Yitzchok says that the fish are more fortunate that other creatures. They live in the water, a place where tumah, impurity has no power. That is why we find that any time Hashem speaks to a Navi outside the holy confines of Eretz Yisroel, like to Yechezkel and Daniel, it is always by the water. The fish sing “Kol Hashem Al HaMayim”, the voice of Hashem is on the water. They sing of their good fortune to live in the holy waters where the voice of Hashem still resonates.

Maybe we can add that water represents Torah. Torah, the gemara tells us does not become tamei, just like water. The world is a confusing place with all sorts of voices calling out at you from different directions. What to do, who to listen to? Dive into the torah drink it with thirst and swim its vast oceans. In this pure environment that can be recreated anywhere in the world, you too can tune out the static and noise echoing from all directions, and hear the voice of Hashem.

The wealthy ruler of the Volozhin district would come to speak to Rav Chaim Volozhin to ask his advice. It is said that this non-jew would tell Rav Chaim all his problems and all his dilemmas. All the while Rav Chaim would sway over his gemara until he finished speaking. Then Rav Chaim would look up and give his answer. We may never reach the level of Rav Chaim Volozhin but if it is peace of mind, clarity, and direction that you are looking for, you too can find it in the sea of Torah.

Zechiras Miriam

Fast Track To Nevua

The Chofetz Chaim says in Shmiras HaLashon, in the merit of Shmiras HaLashon you can go up forever to a high and holy level and merit Ruach HaKodesh.

“Zachor Eis Asher Asa Hashem L’Miriam BaDerech B’Tzaischem MiMitzrayim”

The Ramban and other Rishonim count, among the Mitzvos Aseh Min HaTorah, the mitzva of remembering and saying with your mouth each day what Hashem did to Miriam when she spoke about her brother Moshe. The Chofetz Chaim in Shaar Tvunah Perek 12 says that being Mikayem this mitzva can save you from the aveira of Lashon Hara. More than just saying the pasuk, says the Chofetz Chaim, one must think about the incident in order for it to have its intended effect.
