Devar Torah - Tazria -Metzorah

With one Act we Can Sanitize the Entire World and Bring Moshiach

By Rabbi Shimon Raichik

This week’s parsha is Tazria-Metzora and this past Wednesday was the 28th of Nissan. The parsha speaks about leprosy-tzaras,  a spiritual malady  with physical symptoms.  

The Baal Shem Tov teaches that everything we see and hear is a lesson in our service of Hashem. What are the lessons  from the many striking similarities between the current pandemic of coronavirus and  what is described in this week's parsha? 

With regard to tzaras,  as soon as someone notices a symptom they go for an examination by the Kohen. If the symptom is found to be significant he is either declared contaminated or put into quarantine for 1 to 3 weeks. During quarantine he has to be alone, away from everyone. In the end if he declared to have tzaras it is so severe that if others don’t keep their social distance and pass underneath the tree under which he sits they also become contaminated. The house he lives in and the clothes he wears also become contaminated. 

The corona virus reminds us of what is written in the parsha and vice versa. Until now this week's parsha seemed so far off and unintelligible to the modern world. Now we see how a virus that spreads that we do not see but affects the entire body as well as the air around us can change our lives entirely.

The Torah is our life and the length of our days. Normally after one becomes contaminated they go to the mikvah for purification. Just like there is a physical mikvah so too spiritually an impure thought can become purified with the pure waters of the Holy Torah. The words of the Torah especially Chassidus purify our brain, our hearts and our minds to sanitize and enable us to combat the spiritual maladies that we confront.

We are entering the 30th year from the 28th of Nissan when the Rebbe told us that he did all that he can and now it's up to us. How do we acknowledge this day? Is it another day to mark off on the calendar the things that we accomplished or is this day something different altogether? From the words of the Rebbe we see clearly that that is something different. The Rebbe said that doing all we can to bring Moshiach is an ongoing personal obligation upon each and every one of us.

In today’s environment staying well and guarding our health is on our mind 24/7, or at least it should be. We think and feel strongly that we need to be careful wherever we go or with whatever we touch and who we come in contact with. It's not a joke, it's a mortal concern.

We can take action in many ways. We wear gloves, we wash our hands, wear masks and we keep a safe social distance. So too spiritually, we need to think if what we come in contact with is according to the Torah and to the Rebbe’s guidance, and if our thought speech and actions are spiritually safe. 

So too spiritually with the coming of Moshiach. We need a  24/7 focus about what can be done to bring about the coming of the Moshiach. This was the Rebbe’s entire focus and this is what the Rebbe passed on to us. Just like every person needs to feel the responsibility that the next thing that he or she does can contaminate the entire  world, so too in the positive, maybe the next thing any of us might do may be the thing that brings the Moshiach.  Each act either distances or brings the entire world closer to being a revealed dwelling place for Hashem.

It's a 24/7 life outlook and focus. The 28th of Nissan is not just another day that passes that we mark on the calendar. Our experiences during this pandemic show us that it's not impossible to live this way. We can live moment-to-moment with heightened awareness that one good deed can tip the scales and it could be the very next deed that we do.

The point is to go out of a galus mentality entirely and into a geula mentality to know and feel that the very next action is important and brings Moshiach.

A Good Chodesh, a Freilichen and Healthy Month of Refuah and a Good Shabbos

It’s a very good idea to say one extra chapter of Tehillim a day  for the sole purpose of showing Hahsem our gratitude for our life and for our health. With emunah, bitachon and simcha will strengthen our immune systems to overcome this pandemic.

Devar Torah - Shemini

Among the subjects in this week's Parsha are the laws of Kashrus. When I was in Yeshiva, one of my Roshei Yeshivas noted that from here we see that the Torah was given from Hashem. How so? Kosher animals have two signs: they both chew their cud and have split hooves. The Parsha goes on to state that only four types of animals carry only one sign – either they chew their cud or they have split hooves. At the time of Matan Torah the Jews were in a desert. They were not in the fields of Africa, nor the forests of Europe, nor the prairies of North America, nor were they in Australia; nevertheless, not one more species has been discovered as having only one sign.

On Parshas Shemini 5731/1971, the Rebbe explained a Rashi on this week's parsha. “These are the living things you are allowed to eat (Vayikra 11:2).” Moshe Rabbenu held up every animal, every bird, every fish, and all the swarming creatures and showed the Jews which is allowed and which is not. The possuk does not elaborate on this. If this is what happened, why in the parsha of Noach does the Torah take many passukim to describe how all the animals have to come two by two to the teivah to be saved from the Mabul? And here, the Torah does not go into detail and additionally, Rashi does not ask the obvious question, why does the Torah not elaborate on this great miracle? Here, all the animals, etc. came to Moshe Rabbenu in the desert of Sinai, yet this great wonder Rashi bypasses. The Rebbe answers that a child understands that Hashem wants the Bnei Yisroel to keep kosher and that the people must have a clear understanding of what is permitted and what is not permitted. Hashem brought all the animals from every continent to Moshe Rabbenu to teach the people to keep kosher. Rashi doesn't have to speak about how great the miracle was because it is self-understood.

That farbrengen in 5731(1971) was unique. Until that year, the Rebbe would farbreng on the second night of Pesach after the Seder (of course, without wine) and expound upon the Haggadah. However, the Rebbe did not conduct the Seder upstairs in the Friediker Rebbe's apartment because Rebbetzin Nechama Dina had passed away on the tenth of Teves of that year; instead he conducted his seder privately in his home. At the farbrengen of Parshas Shemini the Rebbe opened the Siddur to the Haggadah and he said a sicha explaining various parts of the Haggadah. A year later it was Shnas Hashiviim (the Rebbe's 70^th year). Beginning that year the Rebbe would farbreng on Yud Alef Nisan and various subjects about Pesach were brought up at the Yud Alef Nisan farbrengens.

The same concerning Shavuos. Until that year, after reciting Tikun Leil Shavuos the Rebbe would come down from his room to the big shul at about 3:00 AM and say a Maamar Chassidus. Since meals were no longer eaten in the Previous Rebbe's apartment, the Rebbe went home right after davenning and this late-night farbrengen ceased. Instead,beginning in Shnas Hashiviim the Rebbe would farbreng prior to every major Yom Tov, usually on the night before Yom Tov.

Performing our Part in the Redemption
By Rabbi Shimon Raichik

The Jewish people left Mitzrayim in the springtime, in Chodesh Aviv; therefore we celebrate Pesach in Chodesh Aviv. For this purpose our calendar has leap years to assure that Pesach always falls during the springtime. It was a great kindness from Hashem to take us out at a time that was neither too hot nor too cold. Springtime, Chodesh Aviv also teaches us a lesson on a deeper level. The Jewish people suffered in Mitzrayim for 210 years under the superpower of the time. Surrounded on all sides by an army of chariots and riders, no one escaped their power. Aside from their great wealth they were academically and culturally dominant. They had a distinct worldview and philosophy. Through their use of irrigation they converted a land without rain into a thriving and abundant agriculture and economy, as the verse says; “K’Gan Hashem, k’Eretz Mitzrayim, Like a garden of Hashem like the land of Mitzrayim”.

Their philosophy and approach was founded on revolved around their perception of nature. Their goal was to exploit nature to it’s utmost to create completeness through might. The exploitation of natural cause and using it for whatever they desired was the cause of our enslavement. They forgot about Hashem the One who causes nature to work and for all things to blossom. This is represented in the spring when we see the rebirth of nature. In the midst of all this Hashem commanded the Jewish People to take a lamb, the idol of Mitzrayim and slaughter it in public!  The time of our redemption had arrived and Moshe Rabbenu informed the people that after 210 years of slavery Hashem wanted to redeem them. Many were in a state of despair. They felt completely dominated and were convinced that there was no way to escape. Nevertheless, against all odds, Moshe Rabbenu strengthened them to believe that they would indeed be redeemed, but in order to get out they had to do something, they had perform a part in the redemption. “Mishchu u’kchu lachem tzon”; Pull away from idolatry, come to yourself (literally: get a hold of yourself) and take a lamb and slaughter it for Hashem (a mitzvah). It’s not enough to do this in your heart or in your house; it must be provocative, in broad daylight in front of everyone. Then, promised Moshe Rabbenu that not only would we be redeemed but also Pharaoh himself would send us out.

Pesach represents the unity and the inter-inclusion of the supernatural and the natural. Both are one expression of the one and only Hashem. Our relation with Hashem in both aspects is reflected in the culmination of the exodus on Har Sinai with the two commandments of Anochi and Lo’Yehye Lecha: that Hashem is the one and only power, there is no other and we serve Him in all aspects.

Nowadays we also live in an updated version of Mitzrayim, a culture whose philosophy are theories based solely on nature. Many proclaim in the name of science to have all the answers and to have the ability to have control nature and exploit it to fit whatever desire dictates. They claim to know how to define all things and condone all types of behavior. Just as Mitzrayim passed, this too this shall pass. It’s is a great thing to use the natural world for the sake of humanity. It should not and does not come at the expense of realizing that nature itself is a gift from Hashem. Once again the Jew is caught in the cross hairs and some people despair of a way out of today’s culture’s eventual total domination over our destiny and our purpose. This is the lesson of the springtime and of Pesach. The time of our redemption has arrived. We need to do our part. It’s time to pull our hands away from the idolatry, of today’s superpower its culture, its philosophy and its idolization of nature. It’s time to get a hold of ourselves. Instead we offer it as a sacrifice, a part of our service of Hashem by acknowledging Hashem’s power in everything this spring, by doing the mitzvos of Pesach and enjoying the Seder together.

By celebrating Pesach this year, together with our families, men women and children may we merit to celebrate Pesach together with Moshiach.

A Good Shabbos; A Kosher and Freilichin Pesach!
