Daf LaKorei

Shabbat Tazria-Metzora

Aoril 21st - April 27th, 2018

Iyar 6 - 12th of Iyar, 5778



" All the days the plague is in him... he shall dwell alone; outside the camp shall his dwelling be." (Vayikra 13:46)

      The Sages said that since the Metzora caused the separation of friends by speaking against others, he too, should be separated from others.

     Being all alone is a great distress. Everyone needs other people. While some people have a greater need to be around others and some have a lesser need, being in isolation causes much suffering.

     Having people around you has many benefits, but, there is a price to pay for this. Your friends and relatives, or even fellow congregants, are bound to do things that irritate you. If you keep in mind that the alternative to having people around you is being all alone, you will view the drawbacks of having friends and relatives as a price well worth paying. When you purchase an item, you usually focus on what you are gaining & not on the loss of money. Similarly, focus on how you gain from the companionship of people. When we are united, we can build and become successful and powerful.

    We, Am Yisroel, enjoy each other’s presence and through unity Am Yisroel has done great things. In a mere 70 years, the accomplishments of building our young state of Israel is staggering. Torah learning, is everywhere in Israel. The economy is flourishing. Innovation and start-ups are at an all-time high. This Yom Ha’atzmaut, every Jew can be very proud of Eretz Yisroel and Am Yisroel. Both spiritually and materialistically, Eretz Yisroel has achieved greatness far beyond anyone's imagination.

    In the 5778 years of Jewish history 70 years is but a blink of an eye. Give Israel an additional 70 years, and with the grace of G-d our holy land will be the leading and guiding light of the nations.

     When speaking about Eretz Yisroel and Am Yisroel, there is so much Lashon Tov (good speech) that we can focus on. That good speech creates love amongst our people and allows us to build even further.

Am Yisroel Chai!                            .
