Parshas Shelach

The Final Letters of של’ח ל’ך אנשי’ם Spell חכ”ם

A Jew Devoted to the Torah Merits an Existence
Referred to as “Teva Chacham”


 “Teva Mefursam” and “Teva Chacham”


 “Teva Chacham” Is Not Miraculous


Miracles beyond the Realm of Nature Occur Only When Man Is Undeserving


The Revelation of “Teva Chacham” by Avraham Avinu a”h


Raise Your Eyes to the Heavens and Recognize Your Creator


Man’s Behavior Determines How the World Is Conducted


The Meraglim’s Epic Mistake:  It Is Only Possible to Serve Hashem Properly in the Wilderness

Parshas Behaaloscha

“Toward the face of the menorah shall the seven lamps cast light”

By Means of the Kedushah of Shabbas One Can Sanctify the
Three Ways in which Man Behaves like an Animal


Three Days to the Right and Three Days to the Left
with the Sabbath Bride in between Them


מלא”ך הוי”ה Multiplied by Six Equals שב”ת


Man’s Purpose Is to Transform His Animalistic Characteristics


In the Merit of Shabbas a Person Sanctifies All Six Characteristics


The Shabbas Was Not Given for Your Detriment but for Your Benefit


The Six Branches of the Menorah Correspond to the Six Human Characteristics

Parshas Naso

Birchas Kohanin: 3 Verses, 15 words and 60 letters.
To nullify by sixty-fold the six hours Klal Yisroel spent by the Cheit HaEigel


A wonderful explanation on the text
“אשר קדשנו בקדושתו של אהרן”


Aharon merits Birchas Kohanim by
Being Moser Nefesh for Klal Yisroel


Atonement for the Cheit HaEigel
by the observance of the 
שלש רגלים


360 hours of the שלש רגלים
nullify sixty-fold the 6 hours by the Cheit HaEigel


“Who has sanctified us with the Kedusha of Aharon”
Who was Moser Nefesh to save Klal Yisroel

Chag HaShavuos

The Torah Does not Refer to Shavuos as “Zman Matan Toraseinu”
We Determine Its Status as a Festival


The Insightful Explanation of the Maharal of Prague


We Rejoice on Shavuos for Receiving Torah She’b’al Peh


Chag HaShavuos Is the Day of Judgment Regarding the Giving of the Torah


Plow a Furrow and Do Not Sow upon Thornbushes


Correcting Our Midos in Preparation for Shavuos


Refining the Midos Insures that the Torah Will Not Act like Poison

Parshas Bamidbar

Ezra HaSofer’s Ingenious Institution:

Beginning Sefer Bamidbar on the Shabbas Prior to Shavuos

Sefer Bamidbar Separates between Those
Who Left Mitzrayim and Those Who Entered the Land


The Generation that Departed Mitzrayim Are Labeled “Light” whereas
the Generation that Entered the Land Are Labeled “Darkness”


Moshe’s Countenance Resembled the Sun while
Yehoshua’s Countenance Resembled the Moon


Maharal: Torah She’b’chsav and Torah She’b’al Peh—
Supernatural versus Natural


The Reason HKB”H Designated Bamidbar and Devarim
for the Generation Entering the Land


Five Books Corresponding to the

Four Letters of Havaya and the Tip of the “Yud

Parshas Bechukosai

“If you follow My decrees . . . then I will provide your rains in their proper time”

Man Who Was Created from Soil Must Engage in Torah-study—which Is
Compared to Water–to Produce Mitzvos


זרע קודש: “ונפשי כעפר לכל תהיה”,
שנזכה להיות כעפר שיש לו כח לברר הטוב אפילו מן הזבל לצמחים


תפארת שלמה: “ונפשי כעפר לכל תהיה”,
שכולם דורכים עליה, ובזכות זה היא מצמיחה מזון לכל הנבראים


אריז”ל: הגשמים הם בבחינת אור היורד מן השמים
לסייע לארץ להוציא צמחים שהם ניצוצי קדושה


כשם שעפר צריך מים להצמיח מזון,
כך צריך אדם שנברא מעפר למים של תורה להצמיח מצוות ומעשים טובים


הגר”א מווילנא: “ענין התורה לנפש דוגמת המטר לארץ,
שמצמיח מה שנזרע בה, סם חיים או סם מות”


גמרא: “גדול יום הגשמים” שמצמיחים את העפר,
“כיום שניתנה בו תורה”, שמצמיחה את עפר האדם


“ונפשי כעפר לכל תהיה”, בשפלות רוח,
ובזכות זה: “פתח לבי בתורתך”, שירדו כמים למקום נמוך


“אם בחוקותי תלכו” – שתהיו עמלים בתורה,
להשקות את עפר הגוף, מדה כנגד מדה: “ונתתי גשמיכם בעתם”
