Torah Portion - Korach
Parshat Korach is waking us all up to have appreciation for the righteous man. Korach says to Moshe; look at us, we’re all holy and the schekinah dwells among us. So why do you think everything is happening the way it is because of you? Why do you think you’re better than the rest of us? Korach wasn’t wrong at all in what that he said. He saw that Am Yisrael was really holding on a profoundly high spiritual level. But he forgot one small detail; all of the good that came to Am Yisroel was only because of Moshe Rabbeinu’s merit.
There are people who are raced in good religious homes, but some of the children there do not follow after the tradition of the forefathers. Learning Torah, you must remember of who gave it, the reasons for its giving. Our Creator made this world, the creation for us. Because God made the whole creation for Israel, for the sake of Israel to spread the light of Hashem to the world. Israel is to be the light to the world. The whole creation has a purpose, the purpose of distributing the light of Hashem via Israel.
