DVAR TORAH

                                                                                     

When you can enter a joyous state with your own mind, it should be effected naturally.

"AND THE ALMIGHTY SPOKE TO AHARON SAYING: WINE AND OTHER INTOXICATING

BEVERAGES YOU SHALL NOT DRINK, YOU AND YOUR SONS WITH YOU, WHEN YOU COME

INTO THE TENT OF MEETING." (Vayikra 10:8-9)

     You may ask, is wine consumption an integral component of Jewish culture? Indeed, it’s almost incumbent upon every Jew to extend his or her good wishes and a Good Shabbos, with a Le’chaim over a glass of wine. Interestingly, in this week’s Torah portion, we actually discern the harm caused by the wine. Nadov and Avihu forfeit their lives after having entered the sanctuary under the influence of alcohol.

  The Netziv, Rabbi Naftoli Tzvi Yehudah Berlin, commented: A regular Kohen is forbidden to participate in the service in the Temple when he had just lost a close relative. The High Priest, however, is permitted to do so which begs the question: Why? It is, in fact, because one must be in a state of joy to officiate in the Almighty’s service. When a person loses a relative, he is in a state of grief and therefore lacks the necessary joy. However, the High Priest had to be a person that can reach the highest level of Simcha, that his service in the temple would transcend any and all personal loss. When he performed the Almighty's service, he was able to be in a celebratory, festive state, regardless of what events had just occurred. Since the joy is necessary, one might erroneously think that a priest could, or even should, attain that joy from outside sources, such as a drink of Le’chaim to elevate his frame of mind. Therefore, the Torah tells us that this joy must result from an awareness of the Almighty; it should not be cajoled by means of some chemical substance that one ingests.

    This thought has practical applications in a generation when people who experience depression in their daily lives often imbibe alcoholic beverages as a means to alter the darkness in which they painfully exist. A person who can enter an emotionally high state with his own faculties, has no need for an outside simulated state.

      Have a good Shabbos from Rabbi & Reb. Yisroel & Raizee Perelson
