DVAR TORAH

                                                                                     

    

Love is a word that is arbitrarily and haphazardly used. People don’t think twice before using this expression.  We frequently hear the phrase “I love him” or “I love her”.  What is the definition of that love? I looked up the word love in Webster’s dictionary and the definition I found was “intense affection and warm feeling for another.”   If love is a demonstration intense affection and warmth towards someone, why is America replete with accounts of ‘love’ dissipating and relationships dissolving? Why doesn’t that love endure? Why do people “fall out of love”, sometimes, too quickly?

     To use an anthropomorphic analogy, when a person says I love fish, what does he mean? If he really loves that fish, why is he pulling it out of the water, banging it over the head, skinning it, and placing it in an oven that is 450 degrees hot? What kind of love is that? If you ask the fish if it is willing to forgo such love and affection and continue swimming the ocean, his response would be yes. The answer is you don’t love the fish; it is, in fact, you’re hungry stomach which is eager to benefit from that delicious fish. The great taste, aroma, and the eventual satiation, is the benefit you love. The welfare of the poor fish is not even on the proverbial table, pun intended.

     I believe, many times, when people use the phrase “I love him/ her” their focus is on the “I” not on the him/her. I love this person, because in my fantasy world, I see this person fulfilling my wishes, making my world complete. I need someone to listen to me when I have a problem. I need someone to do my laundry and serve me suppers.  I need someone to help bring an income for me to maintain the life style I enjoy. In order for me to fulfill my desires, I need the mechanism that will help me fill the void in my life. For many, the performance of that mechanism is what they call love. Clearly, burrowing below the veneer, your real love is the love of yourself. When that is the type of relationship a person chooses, he must realize that a relationship like that is likely to crumble.

     This week’s Parsha offers a different, less popular, interpretation of love. A Jew who becomes impure requires sprinkling of red heifer’s ashes. The kohen who prepares the red hefers ashes becomes impure himself. This is not a ritual for which you would expect many kohanim to volunteer. Volunteering in the preparation of the ashes would mean the Kohen now has to wait until he is bailed out of his impurity by yet another Kohen.  The Miedrash says, the procedure of purifying those who were spiritually impure is the concept of “love your neighbor as you love yourself.” Real love is measured by how much you are willing to give of yourself to your friend. The amount you are willing to sacrifice for your comrade, will reveal your true love for others. What your friends are willing to bestow upon you, does not demonstrate in any way your love for them.

 P.S.  If a person loves people the same way he or she loves fish, I hope nobody gets caught in his or her net.     

Wishing everyone a Shabbat Shalom from the Perelson Mishpacha.
