DVAR TORAH

                                                                                     

Make your descendants proud of you.

"AND WITH YOU SHALL BE ONE MAN FROM EACH TRIBE, EACH MAN SHOULD BE THE HEAD OF HIS FAMILY." (Bamidbar 1:4)

      A simple and boorish person who came from distinguished lineage was arguing with a wise scholar who came from a very plain family. The coarse ignoramus boasted about his illustrious ancestors. "I am a scion of great people. Your ancestors are nothing compared to mine," he arrogantly said. The scholar wanted to put him in his place and said to him, "True, you come from a long line of great people. But, unfortunately the line ends with you. My family tree begins with me."

     This, said Rabbi Moshe Chaifetz, author of Meleches Machsheves, is the idea of our verse. Each man should be the head of his family's lineage. He should be an elevated person in his own right and his descendants should be proud to consider him their ancestor.

     Rather than boasting about one's prominent lineage, one should focus on making oneself into an elevated person.

   When the Maggid of Mezeritch was a young boy of five, fire destroyed his parents’ house. The young boy saw that his mother was sitting in deep anguish, and he asked her why she felt so bad.

     "I am not in pain because of the loss of the house," his mother told him. "But we had a document which traced our lineage back to great scholars."

     "In that case, you need not worry," her five-year-old son comforted her.

"The distinguished lineage will now start from me."

      I feel that there is an important message that can be learned.  Many times we look at our family heritage and feel that we have to follow in our fathers’ footsteps.  People feel if “my father was a tailor, than I should be a tailor.”  The Torah wants the opposite of this.

     The Torah wants us to strive for greatness.  We should forget about mistakes that our ancestors may have made.  Especially now in the time of Sefirat Ha’Omer (the counting of the Omer), we should learn from Rabbi Akiva.  Rabbi Akiva taught us that it is never too late to learn. He ignored all of the smug remarks of onlookers and grew to great heights that we could only aspire to.  May we merit following in his footsteps by starting to build our own family tree with roots of greatness.

     Sunday night is our Shavous all night Torahthon.  Many of us will get together at 12am  and learn all night. The Mishna Brurah writes a person that learns all night will not be harmed in the coming year. The growth in Torah that he will experience that night will protect him in the coming year.

     Join us in our quest for spiritual knowledge and growth in Torah.

Wishing everyone a Shabbat Shalom Rabbi and Rebbetzin Yisroel & Raizee Perelson!
