FAMILY – Short Insights from www.chabad.org

The home should be perceived as a microcosm of the universe: The harmony that permeates the home and the family extends beyond, fostering harmony between families, communities and ultimately, the nations of the world. In the absence of harmony between one’s own family, we can hardly expect to find harmony between strangers.

Pinchas – DAY IN, DAY OUT -by Rabbi Shraga Simmons

Parshat Pinchas tells of the heroic deed of Pinchas, who jumped up with spear in his hand to save the Jewish people from a plague of immorality. A bold action, Pinchas triumphed. Later in the parsha, G-d announces who will become the successor to Moses as leader of the Jewish people. Surprisingly, it is not the heroic Pinchas. Nor is it another great hero, Calev, who bravely stood up to protest, when the spies recommended not to enter the Land of Israel. Instead, Joshua was chosen to succeed Moses. Why?

The Talmud explains that the greatness of Joshua was that he stayed by Moses’ side—day-in, day-out. No, Joshua didn’t perform any incredible heroics that earned him front-page headlines. But in his own quiet and consistent way, Joshua made it his priority to draw close to G-d, absorb Jewish wisdom, and do whatever he could to help others do the same. In fact, the Talmud says that Joshua came to the synagogue early each morning—to help set up the chairs!

Think about it: These humble acts of dedication are what G-d values most, even more than dramatic demonstrations of bravery and heroics. Teachers, public servants, dedicated parents—these are the true Jewish heroes of yesterday and today.

The Lubavitcher Rebbe urged that the Three Weeks should be a time of increased giving of charity and Torah study—”Zion shall be redeemed by law, and her returnees by charity”(Isaiah1:27) —particularly the study of those portions of Torah that deal with the laws and the deeper significance of the Holy Temple.
