Mamtak le Shabbat - Vaera

ממתק לשבת פרשת וארא תשע"ט

Rasskazyvayut of Rawa Grossman, who once went to the Western Wall together with his friend, a very rich businessman, who was also very generous. They came to the Western Wall and see the Jew standing there and crying, choking with tears. Asked Rabbi to his friend, businessman and says: "Let's agree, come to the Jew, and ask that it so gnaws If it's what I can to help - spiritual matters, family - that I take upon myself to help him. . But by all means if it's what you can to help him - money issues - take over, that you help him. " Businessman agreed. Together they came to a Jew and say to him: "Excuse us please, we would ask that You Eating?" And the Jew said to them, "All is well Nothing gnaws at me and did not bother me.!" Rav tells him: "Can it concerns something spiritual, is a problem in the family, I would be honored to help you!"

"No, no, no. I do all right!"

Businessman turned to him and said, "Maybe the problem with the money I'm willing to help you, I am willing to give you any amount?" The Jew says. "No Really, all I'm good!"

Then they say: "If so, what are you then so sob?!?"

He told them a Jew: "I will tell you as it is I have Thank BSU 10 children last night I won marry his 10th son, and now I have come here to thank the Almighty for mercy, which he gave me what he is... He honored me grow a family, honored me to marry all the children. Therefore I weep with joy and emotions! "

The Parsha - Vaera - we read about the beginning of the executions that Hashem sends to Egypt. If we look to these 10 executions, we can notice an interesting thing: 7 executions - Gd commands Moshe Rabbeinu, so that he himself personally or together with Aaron brought (began) to Egypt. The first 3 penalty - God says to Moses, "Say to Aaron," - that he brought. Penalty blood and frogs - it should strike the Nile River, the execution of lice - He says he hit the dust of the earth. But it was to Aaron hit.

Why these executions must be carried out, Aaron, not Moses?


The commentator Rashi explains that Moshe could not hit the Nile because when Pharaoh issued a decree that every newborn boy had to drown in the Nile, the mother of Moshe: "2: 3 ... and took a papyrus basket for him, and he has covered clay and pitch, and placed the child in it and put it in the flags by the river. "and so Moses was saved. And if so, what the Nile river services rendered to him, saved him, and he could no longer come and turn it into the bloodstream. Similarly, in the third penalty - lice - it was necessary to hit the dust of the earth. Moshe could not do it, as when he struck and killed an Egyptian who was beating a Jew, he buried him in the sand. Moshe took the "help" of sand, dust of the ground, and as he took advantage of it, he could no longer come and hit him.

Thus, there is the Almighty teaches Moshe Rabbeinu, and through him to all of us, to the extent necessary to be able to appreciate the good that we have, even with regard to inanimate objects. Neil and dust of the earth - Moshe took advantage of their "help" - now he can not hit them. We must learn from this, to the extent necessary to be able to appreciate any good work from each person. Every person who gave us something good, as far as we need to be able to appreciate it and to express his gratitude. And if in relation to each person so much more, and in relation to God, who always makes us good morning, afternoon and evening, the only constant is good. We must always remember to thank God for all the good things he does for us.

Let it be the desire of the Supreme, that we have received to see all the good that He makes us, in latent form, and in the open, in the most that neither is a simple form, and that we always remember to thank Him for it!

Amen 

Previous Rebbe Yosef Yitzchak, once was at the doctor, who gave him an injection. When he returned, he said to his disciples: "Besht teaches that from any thing in life that a Jew sees or hears, he had to learn a particular lesson for the service of the Creator, and that too from a campaign to the doctor he has a lot to able to learn I've seen. the first thing the doctor washed his hands. then he took a soft fleece and patted her my hand, then he apologized, that I can be a little hurt, and then he made a shot, and immediately afterwards he again rubbed the place with cotton, and apologized again, that hurt me From all this I learned quite a remarkable thing: sometimes there is a situation when there is a need to make someone remark, and it can be painful first thing we need to do in this case - "wash well your hands." -. check that we were not impressed by the same thing - that is, that our intentions are pure and that is our goal - is to help


man. After that, it is necessary to his "pet" - to tell him the good word, before moving on to the criticism, then apologize and very careful to say what they wanted, then again to "pat" the good word, and in this case, we will ensure that our words They will be heard and correctly interpreted. The words that come from the heart enter the heart! "

Also in our chapter - VaEra- we can see a good example of this.

Moses and Aaron came to Pharaoh, and begin to moderate pressure in anticipation of heavy executions. Aaron throws her a Divine staff and it turns into a terrible snake. But Pharaoh was not affected. He calls his magicians. They all throw their sticks on the ground and, with the help of magic, turning them into snakes. But then Aaron surpasses them all, as it is written "7: 12. And they cast each his rod, and steel (staves), snakes, and Aaron's rod swallowed up their staffs." -

Note the interesting thing is it written that the serpent of Aaron swallowed the snake Pharaoh's magicians.

Sages teach here that there was a "miracle in a miracle." Snake Aaron turned back to the staff and staff absorbed staves mages. Adds to this commentator AMAARSHA that there was a third miracle: When staff has absorbed the other staffs, it did not become thicker, and has remained the same and what has been.

If so, then we have 3 things:

1. The staff of Aaron devoured staffs magicians

2. The staff turned into a snake, and then back to the staff and then

absorbed other staffs

3. Once swallowed, do not become thicker - has not changed.

Usually, when we bring up the child or try to affect someone else, it is necessary to do so, as Aaron did - gently and with love.

Real life proves that love can achieve much more than rigor.

But there are exceptions. Sometimes the child is doing bad things, especially misbehaving, and there is no need to vybora- bring him to his senses, to shake him. Sometimes a stick must absorb the other sticks.

The biggest question - how to do it?

The Torah teaches us three important basic rules to be followed in such cases:

1. Before instruction - you need to make sure it's "Aaron's rod" - It's easy to blame, to instruct others. But you need to check and make sure that the instructions come from the love of man, and not from hatred, envy, etc. The Torah tells us that the staff who swallowed


other staffs it belonged to Aaron. Aaron is a symbol of love - "love the world, chasing (seeks) for peace (harmony) ..." - hence, when we want someone to reproach, it must come from love, not hatred. We must always remember that when the accusations come from hatred, they do not bring any benefit, but rather the opposite. And everyone can see this from experience. *From

Translation: The Torah teaches us that just as there is a commandment to admonish (to blame) near, there is also a commandment, to keep quiet and not to do when you know that it does not come from love]

2. During instructions - do not be like a serpent. Even when the source of instruction / reproach - love, there is still a danger that while being going to reproach, to make remarks, imbued / vkradutsya venomous and sarcastic words and your tone is angry and irritable in your speech. The Torah teaches us that when Aaron's rod swallowed the staffs of the magicians, he was not a snake, it again became a dry stick. That is, during the reproach, do not be a poisonous snake, and be restrained and calm rebuke another. Only in this case there is a chance that the words of instruction will be heard.

3. After the instruction is not proud of what I have done - "does not swell with pride." A man can feel pleasure and satisfaction, after someone suggested instruction / accusations. The Torah tells us that Aaron's staff does not become thicker (not inflated), after swallowing staffs magicians. That is, it is not necessary to do of his action instruction on something big, to overstate its importance in this act. Reproach because there is a need for this and all!

Let it be the desire of the Supreme, that we have received to be true disciples and followers of Aaron - love all, to seek peace, and brings them closer to the Torah and the merit of the Most High honors us coming of the Messiah, rapid and complete release!

Amen  Shabbat Shalom.
