Make peace between people, but do not be negatively influenced.


     The Chozeh of Lublin explained this verse, told to Moshe, should be worthy of being the descendants of Aharon. That is, just as Aharon had this distinction of loving and pursuing peace, so too, they also should work on acquiring this trait. Therefore the latter part of this verse warns them that even though they should try to make peace between people whenever they can, they must be very careful not to defile themselves in the process. At times they might come into contact with very contentious and intemperate people and they should not become too close to them lest they become negatively influenced by their faults.

     Peace is a blessing that encompasses all blessings. A person who has peace (in his life) at home, at his work place, and among his acquaintances, is a vessel that is equipped to allow other blessings to dwell in side of him. In the silent prayer of Shamoneh Esrei the Barcha of Shalom Peace is purposely saved for last. It cautions us of the reality that a person can acquire everything in life but if he or she does not possess the element of peace the objective of quietude and tranquility will not be realized.

     Inner peace is also essential in Judaism. We are all aware of the fact that when Yakov lost Yosef the divine presents left Yakov. That was attributed to Yakov’s inability to be consoled. He did not have the peace of mind required to invite the omnipotent back into his life. He lost that blessing and as a result suffered greatly for a span of 22 years. People must work on their inner peace as well. At times that can be very challenging however, if we want Hashem to be with us all the time even in hard times we must do everything our power to attain peace of mind.

     May Hashem give us the Bracha of having peace of mind, peace amongst our family members, and peace with our friends.

Wishing everyone a Shabbot Shalom From the Perelson Mishpacha
