DVAR TORAH

 

  

It is arrogance to demand that everything always be the way you wish.

THIS IS THE LAW OF THE BURNT-OFFERING." (Vayikra 6:2)

     Our verse can be read: "This" is the principle of the arrogant person, the one who looks at himself as an exalted person (haolah). He constantly demands "this." He always wants things to be done his way without taking the needs of others into consideration.

      An arrogant person always wants to have everything his own way. His thoughts are focused only on what he wants. He is totally inconsiderate of others. This trait causes much strife in interpersonal relationships. If two people in a relationship both demand that things must be their way, they will quarrel all the time. If such a person finds someone who is submissive to him, he will get his way but at the heavy price of causing another human being pain and anguish.

     We are a half a week away from Pesach. God has humbled all of us through the bitter disease of Corona. We all realize that without him we can't survive. Being humble is very much the theme of Pesach. The Torah places such stringencies upon Chametz. So much so that one is obligated to get rid of even little crumbs. If one such crumb falls into a pot of Kosher L’pesach food during Pesach it renders the entire pot of food, Chametz. That is not true regarding a little piece of Traif food. If you have a pot of kosher food that a morsel of ham fell into a pot that contains sixty times the amount of ham you may remove that little piece of ham and enjoy the food.

     Why are we placing such restrictions when it comes to Pesach? Among the many reasons given you also have the idea of Chametz representing haughtiness and arrogance. Chametz ferments and becomes bloated much like one who is arrogant. On the other hand Matzah remains thin and humble. We don’t want even a tiny crumb of Chametz which represents arrogance to creep into our pure humble Matzah.

 

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