Korach בס”ד

We all must stand up for that which is right and oppose those things which are not good. This is the right thing to do. One can not be complacent. We also see here that one must careful no to follow the masses to sin.

Korach and his group rebelled against the authority of Moses, against the Torah. They thought they knew better. The result was that they were all killed by GOD. In Europe for the first time since the writing of the oral tradition of the Torah almost 2000 years earlier people dared ,like Korach, to rebel against this tradition. This was the foundation of the reform movement. Again before the reform movement of “Judaism” since the writing down of the Oral tradition almost 2000 years earlier there were not different versions of Judaism. There was only The Torah of Moses as found in the Mishna, explained in the Gemora, Zohar and other Holy books. These rebels as Korach dared to defy the Divine authority of the Torah and we all know the results. Much like what happened to Korach and his crew, but this time 6 million were killed. From these lessons we should learn That publicly going against the Truth of GOD’s Torah is a stupid thing to do. But some people never learn.

We also see from parsha Korach what those who fear GOD and love his Torah should do when confronted by such a situation. When confronted by those who deny the truth of the Torah, by those who claim to know a better way. We cannot stand by idly indifferent to such evil people. This is a time to take a stand, to stand up for GOD and His Torah. One cannot just standby such a desecration of the Name of God. As what kind of love of God does a person have who would act like this. It is a time for action. Moshe told all Yisrael to “remove yourself from the evil company of Korach, take no benefit from them. Or you to will be swept away because of all their sins also.”

We should learn from this parsha from the actions of Moshe that one must stand up against those who try to lead the Jewish people away from the true way of the Torah. False leaders must be denounced. Those who love GOD and His Torah will not be found in the company of false leaders, traitors against the people of Yisrael. Those who deny the truth of the Torah. They certainly will not be friends with such evil men. Certainly those who love GOD will not be joined with these evil men so to benefit financially. Be certain as Moshe said “remove yourself from the evil company of Korach, take no benefit from them. Or you to will be swept away because of all their sins also.” In simplicity those who believe in the way of the Torah are those who should be close to us. Those who lead the Jewish people in a way not according to GOD’s Torah, or publicly speak against the truth of the Torah. It is these who those who believe in GOD’s Torah must stand against, and those who keep company with them. The evil reckless action of these false anti Torah leaders has already brought about the birth of terror state in Azza. We cannot let them lead this Jewish community to the destiny that befell the community of Korach or that of Europe.

It should also be noted that there has been similar themes in the last 3 parsha, so take these ideas to heart. In parsha Bihalotecha it said “when you go to war with the enemy in your land, sound the horns”. As we said this refers to not responding quietly, but with full force spiritually and physically. This refers to the enemy who comes from within, as Korach and those of other nations. In parsha Shelach lecha we learn again concerning false leadership, and not acting according to divine will. The result of the sin of the spies was much like that which recently befell the Jewish community in Europe, they all perished.

Korach

When Moses went up to receive the Torah, the angels gave him with presents. As it is written “You ascended on high, taking booty, receiving gifts among men” (Psalms 68:19). The Angel of Death presented Moses with a gift: the secret of the incense.

 

From the parsha we can see that the Temple incense has the power to prevent death it does this by uniting together all Forces in the world with their source in good. Even the forces of death and destruction, contribute to the development and perfection of the universe. By this standpoint, the force of death also serves as a force of life. The incense reveals harmony and the inter-connectivity by uniting together the core essence of all forces. The incense also encompasses the forces of destruction, so that they may contribute to building and perfecting the universe. As the Hebrew word for incense itself, “ketoret”, is related to the word “keter”, meaning to ‘bind’ or ‘knot.’ Among the many fragrances bound together in the “ketoret” includes galbanum or in Hebrew “chelbenah”, it is an essential ingredient, despite its pungent, unpleasant odor. In this way, there is sweetening of the the bitterness of the universe within the incense itself.

 

This ability to direct and convert destructive forces into constructive and preserving forces, is an exceptional phenomenon. The is hidden knowledge that was granted only to Moses.

Korach is the same gematria as לארבעה (to 4) referring to the river that goes out of Aden to water the garden splitting to 4 heads, these allude to the 4 basic levels the Torah is understood. May it be that these all will be revealed clearly for all to behold restoring all to its ancient glory with prophesy, the Holy Temple and Mashiach quickly in our days.

Shabot Shalom
