A thought for the week

This Thursday is the third of Tammuz, the Rebbe’s yahrtzeit. For the last 25 years, we have always made an effort to visit the Rebbe’s grave—the Ohel—on or around the yahrtzeit.

This year, however, everyone is being told to either stay at home, or come for a brief visit and not to congregate in large groups around the Ohel. The long lines of people waiting to enter the Ohel for a brief two minutes will be limited to a walking line, with no time to stop and pray.

Not being able to physically be at the Ohel this year for the yahrtzeit is certainly dispiriting. Yet we are reminded that our relationship is not limited to physically seeing the Rebbe or even being at the Ohel, just as in the past, before his passing, the Rebbe emphasized that when we write to him, even if we did not receive a full letter back, he is still praying for us.

And of course, when the Rebbe is doing all he can for us, we need to do what the Rebbe expects of us. We must commit to continue fulfilling the mission he gave us, to make the world a holy and kind place, to bring G-dliness into the world, leading to the ultimate revelation, the coming of Moshiach, when we will be reunited with the Rebbe, may it be speedily in our days!

Quote of the Day
Do not intermarry with them: do not give your daughter in marriage to his son, nor shall you take his daughter to your son; for they will turn away your son from following Me... For you are a holy people to the L-rd your G-d, and L-rd your G-d has chosen you to be a special people to Himself...
— Deuteronomy 7:3-6

Parshat Korach

Korach incites a mutiny challenging Moses’ leadership and the granting of the kehunah ( priesthood) to Aaron. He is accompanied by Moses’ inveterate foes, Dathan and Abiram. Joining them are 250 distinguished members of the community, who offer the sacrosanct ketoret (incense) to prove their worthiness for the priesthood. The earth opens up and swallows the mutineers, and a fire consumes the ketoret-offerers.

A subsequent plague is stopped by Aaron’s offering of ketoret. Aaron’s staff miraculously blossoms and brings forth almonds, to prove that his designation as high priest is divinely ordained.

G‑d commands that a terumah (“uplifting”) from each crop of grain, wine and oil, as well as all firstborn sheep and cattle, and other specified gifts, be given to the kohanim (priests).
