פיוטים שירת הבקשות פרשת סופי 10

Rafi Alfasi
18.01.2015
שירת הבקשות פרשת בא – הקלטה משנות ה – 70 רבי משה אלפסי זצ”ל מלמד את תלמידו רבי מאיר עטיה הי”ו
הועלה על ידי הבן רפאלי אלפסי הי”ו – 0549933235

הידברות-הרב יוסף בן פורת-פרשת בא

01.01.2013

סוד העשרות – פרשת בא
לשם מה הביא הקב”ה על מצרים את עשרת המכות?
עשרת המאמרות, עשרת המכות, עשרת הדברות והקשר שביניהם.
אור מסמל את שפעתו הברוכה והטובה של השי”ת, חושך מסמל את הרע.
בורא עולם יצר אור ממוצע שמאפשר להגיע לאמונה או ר”ל לכפירה.
לפני גילוי עשרת הדברות חייבים תחילה להאיר את עשרת המאמרות.
כל מכה שברה חומה של כפירה ואיפשרה את גילוייה של אחת מהדברות.
הנוער בישראל לא קיבל גילוי נאות של אמונת ישראל, יסודותיה והוכחותיה.
חופש הדיבור בישראל נבלם ונעצר כשמגיעים לאלוקים ולתורת ישראל.
עשרת הדברות השאירו רושם עז בנפש כל אדם שהוא לנצח נצחים

Are you afraid of the dark? Take comfort, fear of darkness afflicts many. But what if you are afraid of the light? The darkness that enveloped Pharaoh and his Egyptian subjects in the penultimate of the ten plagues was nothing more nor less than their all-consuming fear of the light of G-d’s truth.

Raw Frand zu Parschat Bo 5773

 

Unsere Aufgabe im Exil

Die Torah lehrt uns dass “Und der Ewige wandte dem Volk die Gunst der Ägypter zu” [Schemot 11:3]. Bevor das jüdische Volk Ägypten verliess, erhielten sie Gold, Silber  und Kleider von ihren ägyptischen Nachbarn. Dies war die Erfüllung des Versprechens, das Haschem dem Awraham Awinu gemacht hatte „…und danach werden sie ausziehen mit grossem Vermögen“ [Bereschit 15:14]. Die Tatsache, dass Haschem die Gunst der Juden in die Augen der Ägypter legte, sodass sie von sich aus ihre Besitztümer weggaben – in der Annahme, sie vielleicht nie wieder zurückzuerhalten – war tatsächlich ein Wunder.

Mutmasslich hätte es eine andere – mehr passende – Methode gegeben, um die Zusicherung G“ttes an Awraham zu erfüllen. Vielleicht hätte es mehr Sinn gemacht wenn Haschem „ANGST in die Augen der Ägypter gesetzt hätte“. Nach allem was während den zehn Plagen geschehen war, hatten die Ägypten jetzt Furcht vor den Hebräern. Darum wäre doch der logischere Weg für die Erfüllung des Versprechens gewesen, wenn die Ägypter den Juden ihre Besitztümer aus Angst, statt „in Liebe“ gegeben hätten.

Rabbi Baruch Leff kommentiert, dass der Fakt, dass Vermögen an die Juden transferiert wurde, uns etwas über den Exodus lehrt. Jeziat Mizrajim (der Exodus aus Ägypten) war – so lehren unsere Weisen – ein Paradigma (Beispiel) für alle zukünftige Erlösungen des jüdischen Volkes. Wenn wir wissen wollen, wie die zukünftige Errettung sich ereignen wird, so müssen wir den Prototyp der Erlösung von Ägypten untersuchen. Im Effekt bedeutet dies, dass bevor wir aus diesem letzten bitteren Exil  ausziehen werden, „wird Haschem die Gunst Seiner Nation in die Augen der Nationen legen.“

Bevor wir hinausgehen, müssen die Nationen uns verehren. Sie werden warme Gefühle für uns haben. Sie werden uns lieben. Dies wird so sein, weil Jeschajahu (Jesaja) haNawi (der Prophet) uns sagte, dass die Bestimmung des jüdischen Volkes im Exil sein wird „ ein Licht für alle Nationen zu sein, dass (dadurch) meine Rettung bis an der Welt Ende reichen wird“ [49:6]. Leider wurde dieses Konzept nicht ganz in die Realität umgesetzt. Aber der Fakt bleibt, dass Jeschaja uns sagte, dass wir ein „Licht für alle Nationen“ sein sollten – ein leuchtendes Beispiel für die Nationen, wie ein Mensch sich benehmen sollte. Der Zweck dieser Welt ist, sie mit der Herrlichkeit G’ttes zu füllen. Nicht nur alle Juden der Welt, sondern auch die ganze Menschheit soll zur Erkennung kommen, dass es einen einzigen G’tt gibt, der diese Welt erschaffen hat, alles beobachtet, sieht, lenkt und leitet. Das jüdische Volk sollte ein Medium für diese Botschaft sein.

Der Neziw von Woloschin (1817-1893) schreibt, dass wir unsere Mission – den richtigen Lebensstil vorzuleben – im Land Israel hätten erfüllen können. Leider haben wir dies nicht getan. Wir haben gesündigt und Haschem hat uns deshalb ins Exil geschickt. Unsere Aufgabe ist es nun, im Exil ein leuchtendes Beispiel zu sein, was ein Mensch sein kann und sein sollte.

Der Passuk (Vers) sagt “Und alle Völker der Erde werden sehen, dass G’ttes Name  über dich genannt ist (auf dir ruht) und werden sich vor dir fürchten” [Dewarim 28:10]. Der Talmud lehrt uns [Berachot 6a] dass dies auf die Tefillin hinweist, die auf dem Haupt getragen werden. Der Wilnaer Gaon kommentiert, dass diese talmudische Auslegung die homiletische Erklärung (Drusch) dieses Passuks ist. Aber, fragt der Gaon von Wilna, was ist die einfache Erklärung (Pschat)  dieses Passuks? Es gibt ein Prinzip in der biblischer Interpretation, dass ein Passuk immer auch eine einfache Sinndeutung hat „Ejn Mikra joze midej Pschuto“ [Schabbat 63a]. Also was ist die einfache Erklärung dieses Passuks? Erklärt der Gaon, die einfache Sinndeutung dieses Passuks ist, dass wenn ein Nichtjude einen Juden sieht, er sofort erkennen soll, dass der G’ttliche Name auf ihm ruht. Er soll sofort merken „aha, dies ist eine heilige Person!“

Leider haben wir noch nicht diese Geisteshöhe erreicht. Das Beispiel des Exodus von Ägypten lehrt uns jedoch, dass wir das Niveau von „Gunst des Volkes in den Augen der Ägypter“ erreichen müssen, d.h. die nichtjüdischen Völker sollen uns respektieren, bewundern und schätzen. Ist uns dies noch nicht gelungen, so haben wir unsere Aufgabe im Exil noch nicht erfüllt und auch unser Ziel – die Erlösung herbeizuführen – noch nicht erreicht.

Dies ist aber das Ideal wonach wir streben sollten. Wir sollten uns nach der Zeit sehnen, in der die Definition eines „Juden“ eine Definition sein wird, die uns alle mit Stolz erfüllen wird.

How is doing a voluntary mitzvah like wearing a snazzy outfit? Parshat …. Rabbi Ari Strulowitz

Parshat Vayikra opens the third book of Torah by outlining korban, burnt offerings. Rabbi Ari Strulowitz of Midwest NCSY, interprets the wording of the second verse: “a man from AMONG you brings a sacrifice.”
While some mitzvot are must-do’s but many others are voluntary, and so perhaps this sacrifice is a voluntary one. Why does this matter? Find out!

TORAH STUDIES: Parshat Bo

Shevat 1, 5775 · January 21, 2015
Bo

Two unusual features distinguish the tenth plague—the smiting of the Egyptian firstborn—from the other nine that G-d brought against the Egyptians. Firstly, Moses announced the specific time that it would take place (“about midnight”), and secondly, the Israelites themselves were commanded to take precautions against the plague afflicting them—they were to stay indoors, and set a sign, in blood, on their doorposts. The Rebbe explains why these features were attached only to this plague, and how they indicate to us the path that we must follow to bring about the redemption of the future—the Messianic Age.

1. The Time and the Precautions

When Moses announced to Pharaoh the coming of the final plague, the smiting of the firstborn, he mentioned the time that it would occur. G-d had said that it would take place at midnight. Moses said that it would be at “about midnight,”1 fearing that Pharaoh’s astrologers might make a mistake in their calculations of the precise fixing of midnight and might accuse him of inaccuracy.2 Nonetheless, this raises a difficulty. Why was the timing of the plague mentioned at all? The mere warning of its imminence would surely have been sufficient, as it was in the case of the other nine plagues. We are forced to conclude that there is a special and significant connection between the plague of smiting the firstborn and the time of midnight, so that in mentioning one, Moses had to mention the other.

In two further ways, the tenth plague was unique.

Firstly, the Jews had to make a special sign “on the two doorposts and the lintel”3 of their houses, a sign in the blood of circumcision and of the Paschal lamb,4 so that the plague would not be visited on them.

Secondly, they had to remain indoors throughout the night: “And none of you shall go out from the entrance of his house until the morning,” because “once the force of destruction is given permission (to unleash itself) it makes no distinction between the righteous and the wicked.”5

But why should these provisions have been necessary? The previous plagues had been directed solely against the Egyptians, without the Israelites needing to take any special precautions to preserve their immunity. Why was the tenth plague different in this respect? And why were two precautions (the sign of the blood, and the confinement to their houses) needed?

2. The Uniqueness of the Final Plague

We can approach an answer by first understanding that the other nine plagues were not of the kind whereby “the force of destruction is given permission (to unleash itself).” They were limited to a specific manner and extent of damage. The hail, for example, destroyed “the flax and the barley… but the wheat and the spelt were not smitten because they were not grown up.”6 But the smiting of the firstborn was not limited to any specific manner of destruction; the force which “makes no distinction between the righteous and the wicked” was set loose—and therefore the Israelites had to guard themselves against it.

At a deeper level, the smiting of the firstborn was unique in its purpose, not only in its manner. The other plagues were not primarily to destroy, but to create in the Egyptians an awareness of G-d: “In this you shall know that I am the L-rd.”7 And this was not a lesson that needed to be enforced amongst the Israelites, who already acknowledged G-d.8 It also meant that in the first nine plagues, those who were afflicted were not killed, so that they could benefit from this revelation of G-d’s power. But in the tenth plague, since the firstborn were killed, the aim could not have been (as regards the victims) to educate them. It was to punish and destroy them. And in this case the voice of strict justice could claim: What is the difference between the Israelites in their idolatry9 and degeneracy, and the Egyptian firstborn? Surely both deserve punishment? Hence the Israelites’ need to safeguard themselves against the force of destruction—the instrument of strict justice.

These safeguards were of two orders. In Egypt generally, the force of destruction was “given permission” to loose itself. Since it is indiscriminate and has no limitations, no “sign” is a protection against it. Therefore the Israelites had to withdraw to their houses. Within them (since they were “passed over” by G-d) the plague was subject to a limitation—and so there was room (and necessity) for a “sign” which would single out Jew from Egyptian.

3. Midnight and Essence

But what is still difficult to understand is this: The voice of strict justice raised the question, “What is the difference” between a G-dless Egypt and a sinful Jewish people? How could a “sign” have answered the claim?

The answer is that the tenth plague was executed by “G-d Himself in His glory and His essence,” G-d as He transcends characterization, in particular, as He is beyond the attribute of strict justice. At this level, the accusations brought in the name of severity and justice are silent, inoperative.

This is the connection between the tenth plague and midnight. For midnight is the moment when this all-transcending face of G-d is revealed. Midnight binds the two halves of the night, the first half which leads from light into darkness and is therefore a symbol of severity and holding-back (gevurah), and the second which leads from darkness into light, and stands for kindness and giving-forth (chesed). And so, momentarily harmonizing these two opposing tendencies and thereby transcending them, midnight is the time at which G-d in His Essence is revealed.10

Thus at the time of the tenth plague, G-d displayed his essential love for Israel, a love which in its infinity finds no place for the accusations of the voice of justice. When the voice claims, “Was not Esau Jacob’s brother?” (Are they not equal?) G-d answers, “Yet I loved Jacob and I hated Esau.”11 For His love for the Jewish people is as deep and invulnerable as the love of a father for his children: “You are the children of the L-rd your G-d.”12

This is why Moses told Pharaoh the time of the plague (“about midnight”). In this, he was hinting that it would be brought about by G-d in His transcendence. For otherwise Pharaoh and his court would have been convinced that a plague whose purpose was to destroy and not to educate, would afflict the Israelites as well, since they too were guilty of sins. Only a revelation of G-d’s unconditional love (i.e., at midnight) would have saved them.

4. Sign and Love

Why, though, did the Israelites still need a sign?

The answer is that to draw down into the physical world a revelation of G-d, man must perform acts of service, the acts which are specified in the Torah. Even G-d’s unconditional love, which is always present and constant, requires an active response by the Jew if he is to internalize it and bring it into openness of revelation. But in this case, since the love is unconditional, the response, too, must be unconditional—going beyond the limits of rationality.

Both of the signs—the blood of circumcision and of the Paschal lamb—were of this character. The covenant of circumcision is performed on a Jewish child who is only eight days old, at an age when his faculty of reason is as yet undeveloped. It is a union between the Jew and G-d which goes beyond the rational. And the sacrifice of the Paschal lamb was at that time so fraught with danger as to constitute an act of self-sacrifice (mesirat nefesh). The lamb was an Egyptian deity. And not only were the Israelites to kill it, but they also had to keep it for four days beforehand with the full knowledge of the Egyptians. Self-sacrifice is never rational. And so the Paschal lamb was itself a sign of a Jewish response to G-d that surpassed reason.

Therefore these two signs were answered by G-d with an act of supra-rational love—the love of midnight, of G-d’s Essence, of the delivery from the tenth plague.

5. Faith and Reason

Now we can resolve an apparent contradiction in the statements of the Rabbis as to the virtue in whose merit the Israelites were redeemed from Egypt. In one place, we find that it was their faith:13 “And the people believed, and when they heard that the L-rd had visited the children of Israel and that He had looked upon their affliction, they bowed their heads and worshipped.”14 In other places,15 it is stated that it was a reward for their signs of blood: “In your blood: Live.”16

But the two opinions are one. The signs were of a bond between Jew and G-d surpassing reason. And their faith was one which went beyond reason. Before the redemption, “no slave had been able to escape from Egypt because the land was closely shut in (on all sides).”17 How much less reasonable was it to believe that 600,000 could escape, a people broken by the rigors of oppression, and threatened with extinction through Pharaoh’s decree that every male child be drowned. The pure faith with which the Israelites believed in Moses’ mission and G-d’s promised deliverance went far beyond the rational. And this faith aroused the unconditional love in G-d for His people, which constituted their inseparable bond. The signs by which it was then expressed, brought the revelation of G-d’s love down to this world.

6. The Future Redemption

“Like the days of your exodus from the land of Egypt, I will demonstrate wonders.”18This means the future redemption will parallel the redemption of the past.

The deliverance from Egypt was a reward for the supra-rational faith which was so internalized by the Israelites that it affected even their most extraneous powers (signified by the blood of circumcision) and even the non-human environment (the Paschal lamb).

So, too, will the future redemption be a reward for faith—the faith which disregards the great concealments of G-d that our exile brings, and which still holds firm to the belief in the Messiah; a faith which does not hover at the outer edges of our minds, but which constitutes our most inward certainty and extends to every facet of our being.

ONCE UPON A CHASID: Leaven ‘Paranoia’ (Bo)

Shevat 2, 5775 · January 22, 2015
Leaven ‘Paranoia’

Do not eat any leaven food

One who is careful with the minutest bit of leavened food on Passover is guaranteed not to sin (inadvertently) the entire year.

– Rabbi Yitzchok Luria, the ‘Ari’.

After Rabbi Moshe Horenstein married the sister of Rabbi Sholom DovBer of Lubavitch, he noticed that his new brother-in-law would not use sugar on Passover. Rabbi Moshe failed to understand why: he himself owned and operated a sugar refinery and knew that no leavened substances are involved in the sugar-making process.

Rabbi Moshe resolved to provide the Rebbe with sugar for Passover. Despite his confidence that his sugar was 100 percent kosher for Passover, he took extraordinary precautions, purchasing new equipment and taking personal charge of the production every step of the way.

On the day before Passover, he brought the sugar to Rabbi Shalom DovBer. He then proceeded to describe the entire sugar-distillation process, pointing out that there are absolutely no grounds for concern. He added that nevertheless, he, Reb Moshe, had personally overseen the making of these sugar cubes.

As Rabbi Moshe spoke, he noticed the grave look on Rebbe’s face. The more he elaborated, the more serious the Rebbe’s expression grew. When Rabbi Moshe finished, the Rebbe took a sugar cube and broke it in two. Out fell a grain of wheat…

CHASSIDIC DIMENSION: Two Kinds of Matzah (Bo)

Chassidic Dimension – Volume 4: Bo
Shevat 2, 5775 · January 22, 2015

 

Two Kinds of Matzah

In the Torah portion of Bo we read that the Jews left Egypt in great haste.1 The Torah thus commands us:2 “You shall eat matzah for seven days. This shall belechem ohni [impoverished bread], since you left Egypt in a rush. You will then remember the day you left Egypt all the days of your life.”

Our Sages conclude that the commandment to eat matzah is fulfilled only when the matzah is “impoverished bread,” i.e., made only of flour and water; one does not fulfill the obligation by eating matzah ashirah (rich matzah) made with wine, oil, honey, etc.

What is the difference between lechem ohni and matzah ashirah in terms of man’s spiritual service; why are we not allowed to fulfill the obligation of remembering the Exodus with matzah ashirah ?

Made exclusively from flour and water, lechem ohni is a matzah that has no taste added to it by the liquid. This is not the case with matzah ashirah , as the wine, oil, etc., add flavor.

In a spiritual context this means that3 lechem ohni is symbolic of the divine service that results from kabbalas ol, acceptance of the Divine Yoke. It involves performing G-d’s commandments though the individual lacks understanding as to their significance. As a result, the person who serves with kabbalas ol does not delight in his service — it lacks “taste” and pleasure.

Matzah ashirah, on the other hand, denotes spiritual service based on a person’s understanding and logic. As such, this service is replete with “taste” and delight.

When a Jew serves only out of kabbalas ol and his performance lacks the “taste” of intellect and emotion, then there is room within his intellect and emotion for evil — he merely forces himself not to follow his evil impulses and does what G-d wills.

But when a person’s divine service is such that it involves his intellectual and emotional attributes, then these attributes themselves negate any possibility of acting contrary to G-d’s will — the person has absolutely no desire to act in an evil manner.

These two kinds of service find expression in the two general types of redemption, the redemption from Egyptian exile and the imminent redemption from our present exile.

The Torah informs us4 that the exodus from Egypt took place in great haste — “the Nation fled.” They did so because “the evil in the [animal] souls of Israel was still at full strength”5 and it was necessary for them to flee the evil and impurity of Egypt. This is symbolized by “impoverished bread” — a state of spiritual impoverishment in which one can serve G-d only in a manner of kabbalas ol.

However, during the future Redemption, “You will not go out it haste,”6 as G-d assures us that at that time “I shall remove the spirit of impurity from the earth.”7This condition, in which evil is totally negated and so there is not even a remote possibility of acting wickedly, is the level of matzah ashirah.

There is, however, a positive element as well to the prohibition of fulfilling the obligation with matzah ashirah :

Although matzah ashirah is symbolic of a total cessation of evil, only the service oflechem ohni requires labor and struggle to overpower evil.

Or put another way: Matzah ashirah emphasizes how man is united with G-d by dint of purifying and refining himself to the extent that his very being becomes the antithesis of evil. Lechem ohni, however, is indicative of a person’s nullification of self to G-dliness; although there is latitude within his intellect and emotion for evil, by fulfilling G-d’s will he forces himself to do that which is entirely against his own nature.

This is why, even at the time of the future Redemption, the Exodus from Egypt will still be mentioned:8 G-d’s ultimate intent is that even when a person reaches the level of matzah ashirah, where there is no room for evil, he should always retain the self-nullification that can only be achieved as a result of labor and struggle.

WEEKLY ALIYOT: Parshat Bo

Shevat 1, 5775 · January 21, 2015
Bo Aliya Summary

General Overview: In this weeek’s reading, Bo, the last three plagues – Locust, Darkness, and Death of the Firstborn – are inflicted upon the Egyptians. Moses commands the Israelites concerning the Paschal Offering and the laws of the seder. After the final plague, Pharaoh unconditionally releases the Israelites from his land.


First Aliyah: Plague Eight: At G‑d’s behest, Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and delivered a warning: “How long will you refuse to humble yourself before me? Let My people go so that they can worship me!” They informed Pharaoh that if he does not allow the Israelites to go, Egypt will be attacked by a plague of locust. After Moses and Aaron left, Pharaoh’s servants begged him to allow the Israelites to leave. “Don’t you yet know that Egypt is lost?” they argued. Pharaoh called back Moses and Aaron and offered to allow the Israelites to leave—provided that they leave behind their children as security. Moses and Aaron refused the offer, and Pharaoh stubbornly refused to allow the Israelites to go.


Second Aliyah: Moses stretched out his hands and swarms of locusts swept down on Egypt. They consumed absolutely every blade of grass and all the crops. Pharaoh beseeched Moses to pray to G‑d for the removal of the locusts, promising to then release the Israelites. Moses prayed, and no sooner than a wind carried the locusts back to the Red Sea and Pharaoh changed his mind yet again. Plague Nine: A frightful darkness descended upon Egypt. For days, the entire nation was incapacitated by the debilitating pitch darkness. “But for all the children of Israel there was light in their dwellings.”


Third Aliyah: Pharaoh summoned Moses again, offering to release the Israelites if they leave behind their cattle. Moses refused the condition. Pharaoh sent Moses away, warning him to never appear in his presence again, “for on the day that you see my face, you shall die!” Moses agreed, but not before he delivered a final message that G‑d relayed to him at that moment. G‑d told Moses that he would visit one more plague upon Egypt, after which Pharaoh will actually drive the Israelites from his land. Parenthetically, at that time G‑d also instructed Moses to ask the Israelites to borrow from their Egyptian neighbors jewels, silver and gold. The Israelites complied, and the Egyptians readily lent out their valuables.


Fourth Aliyah: Moses delivered G‑d’s warning to Pharaoh: “At midnight I will go out in the midst of Egypt. Every firstborn in the land of Egypt will die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sits on his throne to the firstborn of the slave woman…” G‑d then gave the Israelites their first mitzvah, that of determining the New Moon (Rosh Chodesh) each month and establishing a lunar calendar. G‑d also told Moses to instruct the Israelites to designate a lamb for the Paschal Offering. The Israelites were to sacrifice this lamb and consume it, together with matzah and bitter herbs, on the eve of the fifteenth of Nissan. The blood of the lamb was to be smeared on the lintels and doorposts of the Israelite residences, and all inside those homes would be spared when G‑d descended to smite the Egyptian firstborn. G‑d also instructed that for all future generations this day would signal the beginning of the seven-day holiday of Passover, during which no leaven can be eaten or possessed.


Fifth Aliyah: Moses gathered the Israelite elders and conveyed to them G‑d’s instructions.


Sixth Aliyah: Plague Ten: At the stroke of midnight G‑d slew all the Egyptian firstborn. No Egyptian home was spared, and Egypt erupted in a great outcry. Pharaoh awoke and raced to Moses and begged him to take the Israelites and leave. The Egyptians pressured the Israelites to leave as soon as possible, and the Israelites complied. Equipped with all the valuables they had borrowed from the Egyptians, and provisions for the way – dough that was baked before having time to rise – the Israelites left Egypt at midday of the fifteenth of Nissan. This section concludes with some more rules that pertain to the Paschal Offering.


Seventh Aliyah: G‑d gave the Israelites several mitzvot: 1) All male Israelite firstborn were henceforth sanctified to G‑d. 2) Eat matzah on Passover. 3) Recount the story of the Exodus at the Passover seder. 4) Bring all male firstborn of kosher as sacrifices. 5) Redeem all male firstborn donkeys for a sheep—which is then brought as a sacrifice. 6) Don tefillin on the head and arm.

GARDEN OF TORAH: Confronting Pharaoh (Bo)

Shevat 2, 5775 · January 22, 2015
Confronting Pharaoh
Bo; Exodus 10:1-13:16

Adapted from
Likkutei Sichos, Vol. XXI, p. 48-49; Vol. XXXI, p. 32-33;
Sichos Shabbos Parshas Bo, 5733, 5751

A Twofold Challenge

“[G-d] placed the world within [man’s] heart.”1 The mission of mankind to transform the world into a dwelling for G-d mirrors the challenges confronted by every individual in cultivating the G-dly nature of his own character. For every person is a world in microcosm.2

There are two dimensions to our personal task of self-refinement: First, we must use the abilities we have been granted for a positive purpose. For example, our ability to feel love should be expressed in love for G-d, and selfless love for our fellow man.3 And our potential for achievement should be directed to making contributions that are lasting in nature. Each of our abilities should be dedicated toward the most comprehensive good possible.

But there is a challenge which is more fundamental. Every person should ask himself: What am I living for? Is my goal merely self-gratification, or am I living for a higher purpose?

Chassidus explains4 that we have two souls. One is an animal soul, concerned only with its own needs and drives. It is not necessarily bad, but it cannot see beyond itself. The second soul is “an actual part of G-d,” and its fulfillment comes through service, encouraging the expression of this G-dly nature and revealing the G-dliness invested in the world at large.

The appearance of conflict between these souls reflects the challenge which man faces: to break through his self-concern and reveal his G-dly core. When this is accomplished, the first task mentioned above making positive use of the potentials and opportunities we are granted can be achieved with far greater ease.

Within the Macrocosm

These same thrusts are reflected within the world at large. One of mankind’s missions is to use the physical world for a positive purpose. Every element of being contains sparks of G-dliness concealed within it. By using these objects for a spiritual purpose, e.g., eating a meal with the intent of using the energy generated to serve G-d, we tap the G-dly energy invested in the physical, and cause it to be vented. This goal has varied means of expression, for it must be achieved in a way suitable to every given situation.

There is, however, a second, more general goal to nurture selflessness. For worldly existence encourages self-centerdness, and man’s task is to break through this barrier and reveal the inner truth.

The words “break through” are used intentionally. For with regard to self-concern to borrow a Talmudic phrase5 “its destruction is its purification.” Our desires can be redirected and given a positive orientation, but first the fundamental selfishness which characterizes worldly existence must be broken.

What the Plagues Accomplished

Egypt, Mitzrayim in Hebrew, serves as an analogy for material existence as a whole.6As such, both motifs mentioned above are reflected in the story of the Exodus. The miracles G-d wrought in Egypt had two purposes:

a) that Pharaoh should release the Jews, and that when they depart, they would “ask every man of his friend, and every women from her neighbor, gold and silver articles.”7In this way, they would “drain Egypt of her wealth.”8 This reflects the Jews’ effort to refine the sparks of holiness concealed within Egypt, allowing these resources to find positive expression.

b) “So that you will be able to tell your children and grandchildren how I have made sport from Egypt, performing miraculous signs there.”9

Pharaoh is identified with the stubborn boasts, “I do not know G-d,”10 and “The river is mine and I have fashioned it,”11 denying G-d’s influence in our world. The fundamental purpose of the plagues was to shatter this illusion, to manifest G-dliness so that all could see, and in doing so, to break the pride of Pharaoh and his nation.

G-d persisted in this endeavor until Pharaoh’s pride was crushed, and he came in his nightclothes to Moshe, entreating G-d’s mercy.12 Personally, Pharaoh would have been prepared to release the Jews much earlier; he was held back (and the plagues continued) because G-d hardened his heart.13

Why was this necessary? Had Pharaoh released the Jews earlier, he and his nation would not have been sufficiently humbled. The refinement of the G-dliness concealed within Egypt would have been accomplished, but some of the power which opposed G-d would have remained intact. The plagues continued until “Egypt [knew] that I am G-d,”14 and the self-oriented approach which their leader personified was shattered utterly.

Reaching to the Core

Just as the defeat of Pharaoh had to be absolute, in a personal sense the negation of selfishness must also be complete, encompassing every aspect of our being. This requirement is reflected in the name of this week’s Torah reading, Bo. The most common meaning of Bo is “come,” but it also means “enter,” or “penetrate.”15 Moshe is commanded to penetrate to Pharaoh’s core and negate his strength. As the Zoharstates:16 G-d caused Moshe to enter room after room, penetrating to the very heart of Pharaoh’s palace.

Come With Me

The command to confront Pharaoh and negate his influence is given to Moshe, representative of mankind, because the negation of selfishness is a fundamental dimension of man’s service. Man was given the mission of making this world a dwelling for G-d, and this is possible only when selfishness is nullified. Haughty self-interest prevents the Divine Presence from being manifest.17

And yet, this nullification of self cannot be accomplished by man alone; it requires G-d’s power. For this reason, Moshe shrank at G-d’s command; he realized that the task was beyond him. That is why G-d instructed him: “Come to Pharaoh,” i.e., come with Me, and not “Go to Pharaoh.” G-d would confront Pharaoh together with Moshe.

Moshe was not shirking responsibility. He was willing to go, but not with his own resources alone. By hesitating, he invited G-d’s assistance, emphasizing that he would be acting only as an agent, and that the power to nullify Pharaoh’s pride would be G-d’s.

The Dynamic of Redemption

Penetrating and nullifying self-orientation makes possible the revelation of a positive dimension. And thus the Zohar refers to the House of Pharaoh as:18 “the place where all lights are revealed in an unrestrained manner.”

Carrying this concept further, the Exodus from Egypt is connected to the ultimate Redemption. Indeed, had the Jews merited, they would have entered Eretz Yisraelimmediately after leaving Egypt.19

As it is, the entire period from the Exodus until the final Redemption is referred to as “the days of your exodus from Egypt.”20 For nullifying the selfishness of Pharaoh and breaking through the limitations of Egypt began and begins for each of us as we relive the Exodus a self-reinforcing dynamic destined to take our nation beyond all natural limitations and lead to the Redemption.

הודעת הווצאפ האחרונה של יואב

כמה מילים…
קוראים יקרים,חודש טוב! השבוע אנו נכנסים לחודש העברי ‘שבט’, חודש שמפורסם בראשי התיבות שלו “שנשמע בשורות טובות”. מי לא אוהב בשורות טובות? כולנו רק מחכים לשמוע ולהתבשר בבשורות טובות.אבל אולי הגיע הזמן שלא רק נחכה לשמוע בשורות טובות, אלא שנתחיל להשמיע אותן בעצמנו.

במכתביו לחסידים, הרבי הזכיר מדי פעם את המונח “חסידי הצרות”. חסידי הצרות הם אלו שיודעים תמיד לכתוב לרבי כשהמצב לא טוב, אבל כשדברים משתפרים והכול זורם הם פשוט… שוכחים. אם תזכרו גם לבשר בשורות טובות, אולי לא תזדקקו לכתוב את המכתבים האחרים עם הבעיות! – ציין הרבי.

שנשמע בשורות טובות, אבל גם שנשמיע בשורות טובות.

האם התפילות שלנו לבורא העולם ממוקדות רק במה חסר לנו ומה אין? האם התקשורת שלנו עם קרובי משפחה וידידים סובבת סביב הדברים הלא טובים שקורים? האם אנחנו זוכרים לכתוב רק כשדברים לא בסדר?

אם התשובה היא כן, הגיע הזמן לשינוי. לזהות את הברכות בחיינו, להבחין כשזה טוב, לדעת להודות לבורא העולם וגם לבשר בשורות טובות.

ובעזרת השם, כשנבשר – נתבשר, וכשנשמיע – נשמע.

חודש טוב ומבורך וקריאה מהנה!
