Parshiyos Matos-Massei, Story and news

Please add Chana Tzipporah bas Elka Breindel. Miriam Liba bas Devorah.

Tisha B’Av is approaching remember from Rosh Chodesh eating meat is forbidden except Shabbos for Ashkenazim and for the Sephardim the week in which Tisha B’Av falls. So fish or vegetable substitutes are the order of the Day. We must put the Temple above our chief joy. From Sunday evening Rosh Chodesh Av unless there is a Mitzvah Meal, Ashkenazim are forbidden to eat meat.

Parshiyos Matos - Massei

It was the custom at the time of Moshe for people to make vows. If so and so then HASHEM will be my G-D. This is pretty faulty logic. For what happens if HASHEM does not want so and so or such and so to happen? Our Rabbis discouraged oaths and vows. Still until this day women often make vows in an emotional outburst so the husband or father could disapprove of the vow.

30:2 And Moses spoke unto the heads of the tribes of the children of Israel, saying: This is the thing which the LORD hath commanded. 3 When a man vows a vow unto the LORD, or swears an oath to bind his soul with a bond, he shall not break his word; he shall do according to all that proceeds out of his mouth.

A G-D fearing Jew should be more cautious with what he says than a politician.

4 Also when a woman vows a vow unto the LORD, and binds herself by a bond, being in her father's house, in her youth, 5 and her father hears her vow, or her bond wherewith she hath bound her soul, and her father holds his peace at her, then all her vows shall stand, and every bond wherewith she hath bound her soul shall stand. 6 But if her father disallows her in the day that he hears, none of her vows, or of her bonds wherewith she hath bound her soul, shall stand; and the LORD will forgive her, because her father disallowed her.

This is until the age of 12.5 years of age when she is fully mature. It was assumed that she would marry. Nowadays, I fully believe that the Rabbis should make a Gezaira that until the maiden moves out of her father’s for we no longer marry off the daughter off. Once she is mature and have moved out of the house for 30 days, only a Chacham or Beis Din can allow the vow. Today a maiden is dependent on her father.

7 And if she be married to a husband, while her vows are upon her, or the clear utterance of her lips, wherewith she has bound her soul; 8 and her husband hear it, whatsoever day it be that he hears it, and hold his peace at her; then her vows shall stand, and her bonds wherewith she hath bound her soul shall stand. 9 But if her husband disallows her in the day that he hears it, then he shall make void her vow which is upon her, and the clear utterance of her lips, wherewith she hath bound her soul; and the LORD will forgive her.

This is for Shalom Beis. For nowadays a couple are equal but since the woman may get angry at her mother-in-law, the vow can be nullified.

10 But the vow of a widow, or of her that is divorced, even everything wherewith she hath bound her soul, shall stand against her. 11 And if a woman vowed in her husband's house, or bound her soul by a bond with an oath,

She is an adult not dependent upon others. She will have a problem if she has left her father’s house or wants to remarry. I already wrote about my boss’s secretary where I convened a Beis Din of three Shomer Shabbos Males to nullify her vow. In the end HASHEM had Chessed upon her and she had twin boys so she gave the name that her husband wanted to one twin and the one that she wanted to the other. Chassdei HASHEM Yisborach!

… 17 These are the statutes, which the LORD commanded Moses, between a man and his wife, between a father and his daughter, being in her youth, in her father's house.

Moshe knows that this is the last war of his life and he is going to be gathered in after the victory. Does he dawdle? No he executes it with diligence immediately!

31:1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying: 2 'Avenge the children of Israel of the Midianites; afterward shalt thou be gathered unto thy people.'

This is the last war to be waged under the leadership of Moshe. From here on it will be under the rule of Yehoshua and those who come after him.

3 And Moses spoke unto the people, saying: 'Arm ye men from among you for the war, that they may go against Midian, to execute the LORD'S vengeance on Midian.

After 24,000 died from the plague caused by the idolatry of Midian, now they were going to pay the price.

4 Of every tribe a thousand, throughout all the tribes of Israel, shall ye send to the war.' 5 So there were delivered, out of the thousands of Israel, a thousand of every tribe, twelve thousand armed for war.

Actually there were 36,000 according tradition. These are the people 1000 from each tribe for war, 1000 from each tribe for supplies and 1000 from each tribe for prayer.

6 And Moses sent them, a thousand of every tribe, to the war, them and Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest, to the war, with the holy vessels and the trumpets for the alarm in his hand. 7 And they warred against Midian, as the LORD commanded Moses; and they slew every male. 8 And they slew the kings of Midian with the rest of their slain: Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, the five kings of Midian; Balaam also the son of Beor they slew with the sword.

At the end of Parsha Balak, we are told that Bilaam went home. So what is he doing here? He came to collect his reward after 24,000 from Israel died. Now he got his reward from heaven.

9 And the children of Israel took captive the women of Midian and their little ones; and all their cattle, and all their flocks, and all their goods, they took for a prey. … 13 And Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and all the princes of the congregation, went forth to meet them without the camp.

All the spoils they brought before Moshe and Eleazar.

14 And Moses was wroth with the officers of the host, the captains of thousands and the captains of hundreds, who came from the service of the war. 15 And Moses said unto them: 'Have ye saved all the women alive? 16 Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to revolt so as to break faith with the LORD in the matter of Peor, and so the plague was among the congregation of the LORD. 17 Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him.

Any female above three years old might have been used for Baal Peor and every male to stop the progeneration of the tribe.

18 But all the women children, that have not known man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves. 19 And encamp ye without the camp seven days; whosoever hath killed any person, and whosoever hath touched any slain, purify yourselves on the third day and on the seventh day, ye and your captives. 20 And as to every garment, and all that is made of skin, and all work of goats' hair, and all things made of wood, ye shall purify.'

This is the purification of both man and garment.

21 And Eleazar the priest said unto the men of war that went to the battle: 'This is the statute of the law which the LORD hath commanded Moses: 22 Howbeit the gold, and the silver, the brass, the iron, the tin, and the lead, 23 everything that may abide the fire, ye shall make to go through the fire, and it shall be clean; nevertheless, it shall be purified with the water of sprinkling; and all that abides not the fire ye shall make to go through the water.

Similar to how we kosher pots, pans and silverware for Pessach by boiling those used with only warm food or pots and pans by fire or a blow torch.

24 And ye shall wash your clothes on the seventh day, and ye shall be clean, and afterward ye may come into the camp.'

This was for the impurity by contact with a dead body.

25 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying: 26 'Take the sum of the prey that was taken, both of man and of beast, thou, and Eleazar the priest, and the heads of the fathers' houses of the congregation;

27 and divide the prey into two parts: between the men skilled in war, that went out to battle, and all the congregation; 28 and levy a tribute unto the LORD of the men of war that went out to battle: one soul of five hundred, both of the persons, and of the beeves, and of the asses, and of the flocks; 29 take it of their half, and give it unto Eleazar the priest, as a portion set apart for the LORD.

Of the spoils, 1/500th shall go to Eleazar.

30 And of the children of Israel's half, thou shalt take one drawn out of every fifty, of the persons, of the beeves, of the asses, and of the flocks, even of all the cattle, and give them unto the Levites, that keep the charge of the tabernacle of the LORD.'

This is spoils for the tribes that go to the Leviim.

31 And Moses and Eleazar the priest did as the LORD commanded Moses. 32 Now the prey, over and above the booty which the men of war took, was six hundred thousand and seventy thousand and five thousand sheep, 33 and threescore and twelve thousand beeves, 34 and threescore and one thousand asses, 35 and thirty and two thousand persons in all, of the women that had not known man by lying with him. …

This was after they removed all males and the females above the age of three.

41 And Moses gave the tribute, which was set apart for the LORD, unto Eleazar the priest, as the LORD commanded Moses.

You might want to ask what did Eleazar due with 16,000 non-Jewish females under the age of three? He sold them to come families. The people could marry off the girls to their sons or use them for servants for years.

42 And of the children of Israel's half, which Moses divided off from the men that warred-- 43 now the congregation's half was three hundred thousand and thirty thousand and seven thousand and five hundred sheep, 44 and thirty and six thousand beeves, 45 and thirty thousand and five hundred asses, 46 and sixteen thousand persons. … 53 For the men of war had taken booty, every man for himself. 54 And Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold of the captains of thousands and of hundreds, and brought it into the tent of meeting, for a memorial for the children of Israel before the LORD.

Quite a bit of loot for the people.

32:1 Now the children of Reuben and the children of Gad had a very great multitude of cattle; and when they saw the land of Jazer, and the land of Gilead, that, behold, the place was a place for cattle,  … 6 And Moses said unto the children of Gad and to the children of Reuben: 'Shall your brethren go to the war, and shall ye sit here? 7 And wherefore will ye turn away the heart of the children of Israel from going over into the land which the LORD hath given them? 8 Thus did your fathers, when I sent them from Kadesh-barnea to see the land. 9 For when they went up unto the valley of Eshcol, and saw the land, they turned away the heart of the children of Israel, that they should not go into the land which the LORD had given them.  … 12 save Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite, and Joshua the son of Nun; because they have wholly followed the LORD. 13 And the LORD'S anger was kindled against Israel, and He made them wander to and fro in the wilderness forty years, until all the generation, that had done evil in the sight of the LORD, was consumed.

Moshe is worried about another 40 years or more delay in the conquest or the anger of the L-RD. They answer appropriately and Moshe accepts their answer below.

17 but we ourselves will be ready armed to go before the children of Israel, until we have brought them unto their place; and our little ones shall dwell in the fortified cities because of the inhabitants of the land. 18 We will not return unto our houses, until the children of Israel have inherited every man his inheritance. 19 For we will not inherit with them on the other side of the Jordan, and forward, because our inheritance is fallen to us on this side of the Jordan eastward.' 20 And Moses said unto them: 'If ye will do this thing: if ye will arm yourselves to go before the LORD to the war, … then ye shall be clear before the LORD, and before Israel, and this land shall be unto you for a possession before the LORD. 23 But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the LORD; and know ye your sin which will find you. … ' 28 So Moses gave charge concerning them to Eleazar the priest, and to Joshua the son of Nun, and to the heads of the fathers' houses of the tribes of the children of Israel. 29 And Moses said unto them: 'If the children of Gad and the children of Reuben will pass with you over the Jordan, every man that is armed to battle, before the LORD, and the land shall be subdued before you, then ye shall give them the land of Gilead for a possession; 30 but if they will not pass over with you armed, they shall have possessions among you in the land of Canaan.'

Now these are the journeys and many of the names are associated with incident. Di-Zahav hints about the golden calf and Kiriat Hataava on the lust for meat with the quail.

33:1 These are the stages of the children of Israel, by which they went forth out of the land of Egypt by their hosts under the hand of Moses and Aaron. 2 And Moses wrote their goings forth, stage by stage, by the commandment of the LORD; and these are their stages at their goings forth. 3 And they journeyed from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month; on the morrow after the Passover the children of Israel went out with a high hand in the sight of all the Egyptians, … 14 And they journeyed from Alush, and pitched in Rephidim, where was no water for the people to drink. 15 And they journeyed from Rephidim, and pitched in the wilderness of Sinai.

There was no water and the thirst made them lose faith. Because they were loose in their faith Amalek came.

16 And they journeyed from the wilderness of Sinai, and pitched in Kibroth-hattaavah. … 38 And Aaron the priest went up into mount Hor at the commandment of the LORD, and died there, in the fortieth year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the fifth month, on the first day of the month. 39 And Aaron was a hundred and twenty and three years old when he died in mount Hor.

This coming week. The Parshiyos were divided up almost 3000 years after Aaron passed on but the Parsha always falls around Rosh Chodesh Av or at least more than a week to Tisha B’Av.

… 47 And they journeyed from Almon-diblathaim, and pitched in the mountains of Abarim, in front of Nebo. 48 And they journeyed from the mountains of Abarim, and pitched in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho. 49 And they pitched by the Jordan, from Beth-jeshimoth even unto Abel-shittim in the plains of Moab.

They will encamp here now for the next 40 days until Moshe goes up the Nevo Range. After this they will mourn him for 30 days and pass over the Yarden just before Pessach.

50 And the LORD spoke unto Moses in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho, saying: 51 'Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them: When ye pass over the Jordan into the land of Canaan, 52 then ye shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, and destroy all their figured stones, and destroy all their molten images, and demolish all their high places. 53 And ye shall drive out the inhabitants of the land, and dwell therein; for unto you have I given the land to possess it.

All idols must be destroyed. Perhaps if for no other reason than HASHEM being jealous and it is in the interest of stopping the nonsense.

54 And ye shall inherit the land by lot according to your families--to the more ye shall give the more inheritance, and to the fewer thou shalt give the less inheritance; wheresoever the lot fallen to any man, that shall be his; according to the tribes of your fathers shall ye inherit. 55 But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then shall those that ye let remain of them be as thorns in your eyes, and as pricks in your sides, and they shall harass you in the land wherein ye dwell. 56 And it shall come to pass, that as I thought to do unto them, so will I do unto you.

Moshe Dayan prevent the Arabs fleeing in 1967 and look at all the thorns in our sides today.

After mentioning the boundaries of the land, it is now the second time that Moshe publically announces the leadership.

… 16 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying: 17 'These are the names of the men that shall take possession of the land for you: Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun. 18 And ye shall take one prince of every tribe, to take possession of the land. 19 And these are the names of the men: of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Yephunneh. … 29 These are they whom the LORD commanded to divide the inheritance unto the children of Israel in the land of Canaan.'

Each leader of the tribe was equal but I only took one example from Yehuda.

35:1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho, saying: 2 'Command the children of Israel, that they give unto the Levites of the inheritance of their possession cities to dwell in; and open land round about the cities shall ye give unto the Levites. 3 And the cities shall they have to dwell in; and their open land shall be for their cattle, and for their substance, and for all their beasts. 4 And the open land about the cities, which ye shall give unto the Levites, shall be from the wall of the city and outward a thousand cubits round about.

Each city of the Leviim was outside the wall of the main city and for their crops and animals the rest of their Panosa (income) came from Maaser and they were teachers of the people and took shifts working in the Mikdash or Mishkan until the time of Shlomo.

5 And ye shall measure without the city for the east side two thousand cubits, and for the south side two thousand cubits, and for the west side two thousand cubits, and for the north side two thousand cubits, the city being in the midst. This shall be to them the open land about the cities.

From here we learn the borders of a Shabbos walk from the town.

6 And the cities which ye shall give unto the Levites, they shall be the six cities of refuge, which ye shall give for the manslayer to flee thither; and beside them ye shall give forty and two cities.

This section deals with the setting up of the cities of refuge for the manslaughterer.

7 All the cities which ye shall give to the Levites shall be forty and eight cities: them shall ye give with the open land about them. ... 9 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying: 10 'Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them: When ye pass over the Jordan into the land of Canaan, 11 then ye shall appoint you cities to be cities of refuge for you, that the manslayer that kills any person through error may flee thither.

The cities of refuge were for the manslaughterer only and not a murderer. This is accidental. For example: one uses an axe or pickaxe and it breaks and flies into a man killing him. He flees to the city of refuge and is basically under city arrest until the Cohain Gadol dies. The avenger of blood that existed at that time (Shimon and Levy about Dina) could not touch him. It was punishment for not praying and for the Cohain Gadol not praying against accidental homicide.

27 and the avenger of blood find him without the border of his city of refuge, and the avenger of blood slay the manslayer; there shall be no bloodguiltiness for him; 28 because he must remain in his city of refuge until the death of the high priest; but after the death of the high priest the manslayer may return into the land of his possession. 29 And these things shall be for a statute of judgment unto you throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

30 Whoso kills any person, the murderer shall be slain at the mouth of witnesses; but one witness shall not testify against any person that he die.

This is the murderer and here is the hint that the land detests sin which will lead to individual or public exile.

… 33 So ye shall not pollute the land wherein ye are; for blood, it polluteth the land; and no expiation can be made for the land for the blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it. 34 And thou shalt not defile the land which ye inhabit, in the midst of which I dwell; for I the LORD dwell in the midst of the children of Israel.'

36:1 And the heads of the fathers' houses of the family of the children of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, of the families of the sons of Joseph, came near, and spoke before Moses, and before the princes, the heads of the fathers' houses of the children of Israel; 2 and they said: 'The LORD commanded my lord to give the land for inheritance by lot to the children of Israel; and my lord was commanded by the LORD to give the inheritance of Zelophehad our brother unto his daughters. 3 And if they be married to any of the sons of the other tribes of the children of Israel, then will their inheritance be taken away from the inheritance of our fathers, and will be added to the inheritance of the tribe whereunto they shall belong; so will it be taken away from the lot of our inheritance.

To keep the tribal inheritance with the males from the tribe. For there should not be any switching out of the area a member of another tribe.

4 And when the jubilee of the children of Israel shall be, then will their inheritance be added unto the inheritance of the tribe whereunto they shall belong; so will their inheritance be taken away from the inheritance of the tribe of our fathers.' … 13 These are the commandments and the ordinances, which the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses unto the children of Israel in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho.

Nursemaid’s Kaddish by Rabbi Yerachmiel Tilles

Kaddish is not a sad prayer. If you would study the meaning of this prayer that is recited for (usually) almost a year after someone passes away, you would discover that its theme is to sanctify the name of G-d, as the first sentence says, "May His great name be exalted and sanctified." As Jewish people, we yearn to praise and make holy His great name, and it is an honor and a privilege to be designated to say this prayer.
Great is the importance of saying kaddish for the soul of the departed, especially during the first year after passing. And not only in the minyan for prayers, but also after the public study of Torah, for this kaddish has special power to elevate the soul of the departed. The Ridbaz (a great Torah authority of the 16th century) and the Arizal (Rabbi Yitzchak Luria, leader of the Tsfat kabbalists) both state that the kaddish after learning has special potency and gives tremendous pleasure to the departed.
In relationship to the importance of kaddish in the first year, and especially in the first month, let's share a story of the Seer of Lublin, who gave instructions to his attendant that he shouldn't be disturbed during his set times dedicated to Torah study. Nevertheless, one day the attendant came in during one of those sessions to say that a woman in the outer room is crying profusely and insists on seeing him.
The Seer said to bring her in. As soon as she entered, she asked if he recognized her. He answered that he didn't. She smiled and told him that she had been his nursemaid, as his mother was unable. His father chose her because he wanted someone who was careful with the blessings on foods, since the foods one eats turns into milk. He wanted everything to be kosher and pure in order that the child should become a great tzadik.
Clearly, the father's desire came true, the former nursemaid declared, and now she had come with a request. All of her children had passed away, she was not at all well, and she felt that her time was coming soon. She was despairing because she had nobody to say kaddish for her. Would he [the Seer] say kaddish for her after she passes away?
The tzadik promised he would do it.
A few days later she went to her Heavenly reward, and the Seer started saying kaddish for her.
For thirty days the Seer did not take his mind off of her. On the thirty-first day, the nursemaid came to him in a dream. Her face was aglow like the sun and her garments sparkled like a night sky full of stars. She said, "You can stop saying kaddish! I don't want you to say it for me anymore!"
"Is my kaddish not good?" questioned the Seer.
Her answer astounded. "On the contrary. It's too good. Every time you say kaddish, I am raised to another exalted level. Now I sit amongst very righteous women. I don't understand what they say, but it is good for me to be there. But if you say kaddish for me tomorrow, they will take me to another place, which will surely be too high for me. Thank you very much, but please stop saying the kaddish!"

Biographical note:
Rabbi Yaakov Yitzchok Horowitz [of blessed memory: 5505 - 9 Av 5575 (1745 - Aug. 1815 C.E.)], known as 'the Chozeh (Seer) of Lublin', was one of the four major successors to the Rebbe Elimelech of Lizhensk (1717-1787), and the leader of the spread of chasidism in Poland. Many great Rebbes of the next generation emerged from his followers, including: "the Yid HaKodesh", Rabbi Simcha Bunim of Peshischa, Rabbi Naftali of Ropshitz, the "Maor v'Shemesh", Rabbi David of Lelov, "the Yismach Moshe", "the Benei Yissachar", Rabbi Sar-Shalom of Belz, and many others. Many of his insights were published posthumously in Divrei Emmes, Zichron Zos, and Zos Zichron.

Parsha Pinchas, 3 stories

The soul of Zvi ben Chava came to rest this past Shabbos.
Personally tragic was the passing of Shmuel Zvi ben Ita who sat behind me in Schul for many years. His son is our Gabbai and one of his grandchildren learned in my daughter’s kindergarten.

Chukkas Chapter 25 the deeds of Pinchas

25:1 And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit harlotry with the daughters of Moab.

One think that the L-RD despises is lewdness and Bilaam knew this. He advised Midian and Moav of this. Moav seems to have shied away but Midian took the advice. It was simple. If you8 give the Bnei Yisrael everything they might desire, they will not conquer you.

2 And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods; and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods. 3 And Israel joined himself unto the Baal of Peor; and the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel.

When G-D criticizes the Mussar is harsh. In the Talmud Perek Rabbi Akiva of Tractate Shabbos we learn “The cow of Rabbi Eliezer ben Azaria went out on Shabbos…” The Talmud asks: “The cow! He had vast herds of cattle and every year his Ma’aseh Behayma was 1000 newly born cattle” thus he had 10,000 births each year! It turned out that it was the cow of a neighbor. But since he was the Rabbi, he should have imposed himself on the community. Thus too here Israel joined unto Baal Peor. It was 24,000 of Shimon which is about 4% of the males but not of the whole population. However, the other tribes should have stopped this.

4 And the LORD said unto Moses: 'Take all the chiefs of the people, and hang them up unto the LORD in face of the sun, that the fierce anger of the LORD may turn away from Israel.' 5 And Moses said unto the judges of Israel: 'Slay ye everyone his men that have joined themselves unto the Baal of Peor.' 6 And, behold, one of the children of Israel came and brought unto his brethren a Midianitish woman in the sight of Moses, and in the sight of all the congregation of the children of Israel, while they were weeping at the door of the tent of meeting.

Zimri told off Moshe Rabbaynu. You, who married a woman from Midian, have no right to stop me! At that moment it was as if Moshe’s mouth was filled with water. True he had married a Midian woman but it was the daughter of a Priest unto HASHEM and before Matan Torah not a woman of a fertility cult.

7 And when Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he rose up from the midst of the congregation, and took a spear in his hand.

Pinchas was infuriate at what had just happened with his uncle and the Chutzpa to bring such a woman into the camp. He was jealous and zealous for HASHEM.

8 And he went after the man of Israel into the chamber, and thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through her belly. So the plague was stayed from the children of Israel.

The Medrash states that there was a guard at the tent but he stated that he wanted to participate so they let him through. A more believable Medrash is that Pinchas was unaffected by contact in a tent with a dead body for he took a long spear and rammed both Zimri and Cozbi through at the stomach area during the act and dragged them out of the tent before all of Yisrael to see them dying.

9 And those that died by the plague were twenty and four thousand.

I had one Jewish Professor at my University who said that this was the prevention of the spread of venereal disease or birth control. I did not argue with him. Stayed PC and got my A. That unfortunately is what was the forerunner of today. For me the plague came from HASHEM and it is similar to the destruction of Yerushalayim described in Yechezkel. The red Tav in blood for TAMOOT or die and the black Tav in ink for TEHEYEH for who will live. Yechezkel Chapter 9.

Parsha Pinchas

25:10 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying: 11 'Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, hath turned My wrath away from the children of Israel, in that he was very jealous for My sake among them, so that I consumed not the children of Israel in My jealousy.

Phinehas the son of Eleazar the son of Aaron the kohen: Since the tribes were disparaging him, saying, Have you seen the son of Puti, whose mother’s father [Jethro] fattened (פִּטֵּם) calves for idols (See Rashi, Exod. 6:25), and who killed a chieftain of an Israelite tribe? For this reason, Scripture traces his pedigree to Aaron. — [Sanh. 82b, Num. Rabbah 21:3, Mid. Tanchuma Pinchas 2] By his zealously avenging Me: Heb. אֶתקִנְאָתִי בְּקַנְאוֹ, by his avenging My vengeance, by his releasing the wrath that I should have released. The term קִנְאָה always denotes someone motivated to take vengeance for some matter, in old French, enprenemant.

Pinchas’s battle was to fight for family purity and against idol worship.

12 Wherefore say: Behold, I give unto him My covenant of peace;

My covenant of peace: That it should be a covenant of peace for him. Just as a man owes gratitude and favor to someone who did him a favor, so here God expressed to him His feelings of peace.

Two people have an eternal covenant the first is Pinchas and the second is David Melech Yisrael. The first taught us to be zealous for HASHEM and the second taught us both Teshuva and praise of HASHEM.

13 and it shall be unto him, and to his seed after him, the covenant of an everlasting priesthood; because he was jealous for his God, and made atonement for the children of Israel.'

It shall be: This covenant of Mine [mentioned in the previous verse] shall be for him. An eternal covenant of kehunah: Although the kehunah had already been given to Aaron’s descendants, it had been given only to Aaron and his sons who were anointed with him, and to their children whom they would beget after their anointment. Phinehas, however, who was born before that and had never been anointed, had not been included in the kehunah until now. And so, we learn in [Tractate] Zevachim [101b],“Phinehas was not made a kohen until he killed Zimri.”For his God: Heb. לֵאלֹהָיו, for the sake of his God, as in (11:29),“Are you zealous for my sake (לִי) ?” and (Zech. 8:2),“I am zealous for Zion (לְצִיּוֹן) ”-for the sake of Zion.

Pinchas was born but too young to be anointed priest when the Kahuna was anointed so it was a question whether or not he was a Cohain. Here comes HASHEM, himself and declares so but not only that but eternally so and with peace!

14 Now the name of the man of Israel that was slain, who was slain with the Midianitish woman, was Zimri, the son of Salu, a prince of a fathers' house among the Simeonites. 15 And the name of the Midianitish woman that was slain was Cozbi, the daughter of Zur; he was head of the people of a fathers' house in Midian.

I already wrote in past years that Pinchas turned into Eliyahu HaNovi. Zimri to Rabbi Akiva, Cozbi into Rachel and Zur into Kalba Savua to make a Tikkun on the reincarnations.

16 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying: 17 'Harass the Midianites, and smite them;

18 for they harass you, by their wiles wherewith they have beguiled you in the matter of Peor, and in the matter of Cozbi, the daughter of the prince of Midian, their sister, who was slain on the day of the plague in the matter of Peor.'
The census which was taken prior to the Egel HaZahav (golden calf) early in the desert is now retaken. Then it was 606,000 men after 38 years the quantity is 603,000 men after the deaths of the 24,000 from Shevet Shimon. That is the tragic history of Am Yisrael. We are good, we grow. We sin we are punished and either stay the same or shrink as in the Holocaust and the further holocaust of abortions, assimilations and late marriages of the Jewish People. The purpose of this census is to divide the land between families of the tribes that are entering the land. This is when the daughters who were orphaned ask for the share of their father which is that of a Bechor ben Bechor so quite large. However, since the land is tribal, they must marry within the tribe. They did and perhaps may of the 28,000,000 Bnei Menashe come from them.

… 52 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying: 53 'Unto these the land shall be divided for an inheritance according to the number of names. 54 To the more thou shalt give the more inheritance, and to the fewer thou shalt give the less inheritance; to each one according to those that were numbered of it shall its inheritance be given. 55 Notwithstanding the land shall be divided by lot; according to the names of the tribes of their fathers they shall inherit. 56 According to the lot shall their inheritance be divided between the more and the fewer.' … 65 For the LORD had said of them: 'They shall surely die in the wilderness.' And there was not left a man of them, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.

The land was to be divided between tribes and families and the first born getting a double portion.

27: 1 Then drew near the daughters of Zelophehad, the son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, of the families of Manasseh the son of Joseph; and these are the names of his daughters: Mahlah, Noah, and Hoglah, and Milcah, and Tirzah. 2 And they stood before Moses, and before Eleazar the priest, and before the princes and all the congregation, at the door of the tent of meeting, saying: 3 'Our father died in the wilderness, and he was not among the company of them that gathered themselves together against the LORD in the company of Korah, but he died in his own sin; and he had no sons.

From here we learn of the inheritance of daughters.

… 6 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying: 7 'The daughters of Zelophehad speak right: thou shalt surely give them a possession of an inheritance among their father's brethren; and thou shalt cause the inheritance of their father to pass unto them. 8 And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying: If a man die, and have no son, then ye shall cause his inheritance to pass unto his daughter. 9 And if he have no daughter, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his brethren.

The daughters take precedence over brothers and other relatives for inheritance.

15 And Moses spoke unto the LORD, saying: 16 'Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation,

Since Moshe will soon die (in approximately 40 days after the conquest of Midian), he must set up a successor. For after the defeat of Midian, Moshe was to be gathered in.        

17 who may go out before them, and who may come in before them, and who may lead them out, and who may bring them in; that the congregation of the LORD be not as sheep which have no shepherd.'

Moshe was very worried who would lead the people. Sometimes it can go on momentum like the Chassidim of Rabbi Nachman from Breslov or the Lubavitch Organization that the last Rebbe set up. However, the people are not that entrenched in their beliefs and quite tribal so they need a head.

18 And the LORD said unto Moses: 'Take thee Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is spirit, and lay thy hand upon him; 19 and set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation; and give him a charge in their sight. 20 And thou shalt put of thy honor upon him, that all the congregation of the children of Israel may hearken. 21 And he shall stand before Eleazar the priest, who shall inquire for him by the judgment of the Urim before the LORD; at his word shall they go out, and at his word they shall come in, both he, and all the children of Israel with him, even all the congregation.' 22 And Moses did as the LORD commanded him; and he took Joshua, and set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation. 23 And he laid his hands upon him, and gave him a charge, as the LORD spoke by the hand of Moses.

Now the people have an ordained leader to bring them into the land.

28: 1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying: 2 Command the children of Israel, and say unto them: My food which is presented unto Me for offerings made by fire, of a sweet savor unto Me, shall ye observe to offer unto Me in its due season. 3 And thou shalt say unto them: This is the offering made by fire which ye shall bring unto the LORD: he-lambs of the first year without blemish, two day by day, for a continual burnt-offering. 4 The one lamb shalt thou offer in the morning, and the other lamb shalt thou offer at dusk;

This is the daily offering with its meal and wine offering in the morning and in the very late afternoon as evening approaches. The exception being Erev Pessach when it was done at the start of the afternoon for the Korban Pessach to be slaughter and the blood sprinkled on the Mizbayach. This starts the order of the public Korbanos from the most usual occurrences to the lesser.

9 And on the Sabbath day two he-lambs of the first year without blemish, and two tenth parts of an ephah of fine flour for a meal-offering, mingled with oil, and the drink-offering thereof. 10 This is the burnt-offering of every Sabbath, beside the continual burnt-offering, and the drink-offering thereof.

Since we have a weekly Shabbos Korban this follows and then the monthly Korban of Rosh Chodesh.

11 And in your new moons ye shall present a burnt-offering unto the LORD: two young bullocks, and one ram, seven he-lambs of the first year without blemish; 12 and three tenth parts of an ephah of fine flour for a meal-offering, mingled with oil, for each bullock; and two tenth parts of fine flour for a meal-offering, mingled with oil, for the one ram; 13 and a several tenth part of fine flour mingled with oil for a meal-offering unto every lamb; for a burnt-offering of a sweet savour, an offering made by fire unto the LORD. 14 And their drink-offerings shall be half a hin of wine for a bullock, and the third part of a hin for the ram, and the fourth part of a hin for a lamb. This is the burnt-offering of every new moon throughout the months of the year. 15 And one he-goat for a sin-offering unto the LORD; it shall be offered beside the continual burnt-offering, and the drink-offering thereof.

The goat is added each month as a sin offering.

16 And in the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, is the LORD'S Passover. … 25 And on the seventh day ye shall have a holy convocation; ye shall do no manner of servile work. {S} 26 Also in the day of the first-fruits, when ye bring a new meal-offering unto the LORD in your feast of weeks, ye shall have a holy convocation: ye shall do no manner of servile work; …
29: 1 And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, ye shall have a holy convocation: ye shall do no manner of servile work; it is a day of blowing the horn unto you. 2 And ye shall prepare a burnt-offering for a sweet savor unto the LORD: one young bullock, one ram, seven he-lambs of the first year without blemish; 3 and their meal-offering, fine flour mingled with oil, three tenth parts for the bullock, two tenth part for the ram, 4 and one tenth part for every lamb of the seven lambs; 5 and one he-goat for a sin-offering, to make atonement for you. … 7 And on the tenth day of this seventh month ye shall have a holy convocation; and ye shall afflict your souls; ye shall do no manner of work; …12 And on the fifteenth day of the seventh month ye shall have a holy convocation: ye shall do no manner of servile work, and ye shall keep a feast unto the LORD seven days; … 35 On the eighth day ye shall have a solemn assembly: ye shall do no manner of servile work;
… 39 These ye shall offer unto the LORD in your appointed seasons, beside your vows, and your freewill-offerings, whether they be your burnt-offerings, or your meal-offerings, or your drink-offerings, or your peace-offerings.

These Korbanos were the beautiful ceremonies of the yearly cycle. They were to bring the nation together and to remind the people of the creation and Yetzias Mitzrayim. The other Korbanos were from the individuals.

30:1 And Moses told the children of Israel according to all that the LORD commanded Moses.

Baal Peor in mini and a little funny story from my childhood on poor education both of the non-Jew and the Jew. I go back in time to somewhere between 64 to 66 years ago when my age was between 4 to 6. The non-Jewish girl wanted to tell me a childish secret but I had to swear that I would not disclose it. She said, “Cross your heart and hope to die that you will never ever tell a lie.” Nobody told me what a cross was or crossing the heart no did they educate me that I should want to die or educate a child to be willing to die if they lie. Fast forward to the age of 9 or 10 and mike would do this exercise of moving his hand from either right to left or left to right and then up and down and hitting a punchball and bringing in a hit or a even getting a run for himself. I was pretty bad or a grounder to first base. By this time I had seen a statue of a dead Jew on a T square the open door of the local Catholic Church and people bowing down to it. So when Mark Wolf told me “You stupid Jew that was the sign of the Cross!” Crossing one’s heart. I was before Bar Mitzvah but that essentially minus the lewdness what Shevet Shimon did when they relieved themselves of defecated in front of Baal Peor.

Stalin vs. Schneersohn 90 years later by Rabbi Y.Y. Jacobson

A Vain Battle
If there was ever a battle fought in vain, this was it. Or at least, so it seemed at the time.
The year is 1924. Vladimir Lenin, the father of the communist revolution, is dead; over 900,000 people pass through the Hall of Columns during the four days and nights that Lenin's body lay exposed to the public.
Josef Stalin succeeds him as the new leader of the Soviet Union. During the following thirty years, he would murder 50 million of his own people. Jews and Judaism would be one of his primary targets. He sets up a special government organization, the Yevsektzye, to ensure that Russian Jewry in its millions embrace the new ethos of Communism, introducing a paradise constructed of bullets and gulags. 
Stalin would rule with an iron fist till his death in March 1953, when four million people would gather in Red Square to bid farewell to the tyrant still revered and beloved by much of his nation and by many millions the world over.
At his home in Leningrad (today Petersburg), a 44-year-old rabbi, heir to some of the great Jewish thinkers and leaders of Russian Jewry, summons nine young disciples. He offers them an opportunity most would refuse: to take responsibility for the survival of Judaism in the communist Soviet Union; to ensure that Jewish life and faith would survive the hellish darkness of Stalin’s regime. He wants them to fight—in his words … “till the last drop of blood.”
They embrace the mission. He gives his hand to each of them as a sign that they are accepting an oath, one that would transform their destiny forever. "I will be the tenth, he says; together we have a Minyan"...
An Underground Revolution
The nine men were dispatched throughout the country. With assistance from similar minded colleagues, they created an impressive underground network of Jewish activity, which included Jewish schools, synagogues, mikvaot (ritual baths used by Jewish woman for spiritual feminine reinvigoration), adult Torah education, Yeshivot (academies for Torah learning for students), Jewish text books, providing rabbis for communities, teachers for schools, etc. Over the 1920's and 1930's, these individuals built six hundred (!) Jewish underground schools throughout the U.S.S.R (1). Many of them last for only a few weeks or months. When the KGB (the secret Russian police) discovered a school, the children were expelled, the teacher arrested. A new one was opened elsewhere, usually in a cellar or on a roof.
One of the nine young men was sent to Georgia. There were dozens of mikvaot there, all shut down by the communists who buried them in sand and gravel. This young man decided to do something radical. He falsified a letter written supposedly by the KGB headquarters in Moscow, instructing the local offices in Georgia to open two mikvaot within 24 hours.
The local officials were deceived. Within a day, two mikvaot were open. Several months later, when they discovered the lie, they shut them down again.
And so it went. A Mohel (the person performing the mitzvah of circumcision) was arrested, and another one was dispatched to serve the community; a yeshiva was closed, and another one opened elsewhere; a synagogue was destroyed and another one opened its portals in secrecy. It is a chapter in Jewish history unbeknownst to most.
But it sure seemed like a lost battle. Here was an individual rabbi, with a small group of pupils, staging an underground rebellion against a mighty empire that numbered in the hundreds of millions, and aspired to dominate the world. It was like an infant wrestling a giant, an ant attempting to defeat a military tank. The situation was hopeless.
Finally, in 1927—ninety years ago—they lost their patience with this man. The rabbi behind the counter-revolutionary work was arrested and sentenced to death by a firing squad. Foreign pressure and nothing less than a miracle convinced the KGB to alter the sentence to ten years in exile. It was then converted to three years, and then—quite unbelievable in the Soviet Regime where clergy and laymen alike were murdered like flies—he was completely exonerated. Today and tomorrow, July 6-7, the 12th and 13th of the Hebrew month of Tamuz, marks the 90th anniversary since he was liberated from Stalin’s death sentence.
The individual behind the spiritual mutiny was the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn (1880-1950), who became the leader of Chabad in 1920, after the passing of his father. He selected nine of his young pupils to wage battle with him. The one sent to Georgia, falsifying the KGB document, was my grandfather, Simon Yakabashvili, my father’s father (1900-1953). He, together with hundreds of his colleagues, Chassidim throughout the Soviet Union, was arrested in 1938, tortured mercilessly and given a 25-year sentence in the Gulag. Most of his eight colleagues who accepted the oath never made it out of Stalin’s hell. They perished in the Soviet Union.
(My grandfather, Reb Simon, made it out of the USSR, but died several years later at the age of 53 in Toronto. He died 64 years ago, on 2 Tamuz 5713, 1953, leaving their young sons, Gershon, Bezalel and Shalom. My father died in 2005, my uncle Bezalel died four years ago. Their mother, Frieda, passed on in 1954, one year after her husband. She was 44. One child remains, may he enjoy many long and healthy years).
Investing in Eternity
Nine decades have passed. This passage of time gives us the opportunity to answer the question, who won? Stalin or Schneerson?
Eighty years ago, Marx's socialism and Lenin’s communism heralded a new era for humanity. Its seemingly endless power and brutality seemed unbreakable.
Yet one individual stood up, a man who would not allow the awesome war machine of Mother Russia to blur his vision, to eclipse his clarity. In the depths of his soul he was aware that history had an undercurrent often invisible to most but discernible for students of the long and dramatic narrative of our people. He knew with full conviction that evil might thrive but it will die; yet goodness, holiness, G-dliness—embodied in Torah and Mitzvos—are eternal. And he chose to invest in eternity.
He probably did not know how exactly it would work out in the end. I am not sure he believed he would survive. But he knew that his mission in life was to sow seeds though the trees were being felled one by one.
Cynics scoffed at him; close friends told him he was making a tragic mistake. Even many of his religious colleagues were convinced that he was wasting his time and energy fighting an impossible war. They either fled the country or maintained a very low profile. Some great rabbis at the time felt he was trying to do the impossible and it was futile.
But 90 years later, this giant and what he represented have emerged triumphant. Today, in 2017, in the republics of the former Soviet Union stand hundreds of synagogues, Jewish day schools, yeshivot, mikvaot, Jewish community centers. Since communism fell, the Lubavitcher Rebbe (the son in law of the sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe who was liberated today in 1927) sent literally hundreds of ambassadors to create a Jewish renaissance. They span the entire length and breadth of the country, from Siberia to Tashkent; from Tbilisi till Krasnoyarsk. Over the last 25 years they have built more than one hundred (!) full-time Jewish day schools, in which more than 100,000 Jewish children received a Jewish Torah education. As this summer season began, dozens of Jewish day camps opened up throughout the former Soviet Union with tens of thousands of Jewish children who will enjoy a blissful summer coupled with the celebration of Jewish life.
Last Chanukah, a large menorah stood tall in the Kremlin, casting the glow of Chanukah on the grounds where Stalin walked with Berya and Yezhov. On Lag Baomer (a Jewish holiday), thousands of Jewish children with kippot on their heads marched the streets of Moscow with signs proclaiming, "Hear oh Israel... G-d is One." Jewish life is bustling in Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Lithuania, Uzbekistan, etc.
Visiting Russia last summer, Russia’s chief Rabbi, Berel Lazar, pointed to a massive Jewish school he built in Moscow stretching over a full block. “Right across from here were some of the main offices of the KGB, where the orders to decimate Judaism came from,” he said.
Across the street was a massive Jewish museum, one of the nicest I have ever seen, attracting thousands of weekly visitors, telling the story of the Jewish people and its heritage. “How did you get the money for this?” I asked Rabbi Lazar. He smiled and said that the first million came from the private charity of Vladimir Putin and then the rest was easy.
I then entered, two streets over, the Marina Rashtze synagogue in Moscow, a massive and beautiful 8-story structure. Hundreds of Jews were praying and studying Torah.   
Comrade Stalin is dead; communism has faded away as hopelessly irrelevant and destructive. The sun of the nations is today a clod of darkness. The ideology of the Soviet Empire which declared "Lenin has not died and Stalin will not die. He is eternal," is now a mockery. Stalin and Lenin are as dead as one can be. But the Mikvaot built by the Lubavitcher Rebbe in 1927, they are still here.
 If you will visit Russia this coming Shabbos, I am not sure you will find anybody celebrating the life and vision of Stalin or even Khrushchev and Brezhnev. But you will find tens of thousands of Jews celebrating the liberation of the Lubavitcher Rebbe in 1927 and the narrative of one man’s triumph over one of the greatest mass-murderers in human history, sharing his vision, committing themselves to continue saturating the world with the light of Torah and Mitzvos.
So today on the 12th of Tamuz lift up your glasses and say L’chayim! L’chayim to a Rebbe who inspired such heroism in so many disciples, many of them who paid the ultimate price. L’chayim to the incredible Jews of Russia who maintained the embers burning for seven decades, and then—when opportunity came—fanned them into glowing flames. L’chayim to my dear Zeide, Reb Simon, whom I never met but whose life-story is engraved in the core of my heart.
Today, we have many battles to fight, and plenty of darkness to conquer. It is easy to become cynical or depressed, leading to emotional paralysis. But our greatest leaders always knew better. They never allowed the mask of evil to define the narrative of history; they ensured that another story would dominate the world agenda.
So can we.

From Albert: Who was Manny?

Pierre didn't know where it came from, he only knew that it came and it helped in oh-so-many ways. The money always arrived with a small short note that simply said, "Keep up the great cause, we will prevail," and was simply signed, "Manny."

Pierre didn't know who Manny was - nobody did! Not then anyway, we do now. But this was during World War II when the Black Horror was sweeping Europe. That's what Manny called it, The Black Horror, & of course he was referring to the Nazi plague that was taking over most of the continent. Pierre was a leader of the French Resistance, commonly called the underground. He fought with groups of French citizens in the best way he could, by living within main society and leading bands of armed resistance against the Germans in clandestine activities. They would ambush German patrols, blow up German installations and sabotage Nazi operations in any way they could.

The Allies were good at providing arms and weapons, but the underground also needed money. That was a commodity that was very hard to come by during the war, especially when your country is completely occupied by an invading military force.

And that's where Manny came in. He sent money, and he sent a lot of it. Manny was Emmanuel Goldenberg, born a Romanian Jew, who was now living in America. Manny had done very well in his life and he knew only too well what kinds of horrors were going on in his native Romania & the rest of Europe. Jews and others were being gassed and killed by the millions and he had to do something.

One thing he could do was use his good fortune to help the war effort. He had tried to join the Armed Forces, but he didn't qualify, so he did what he could. He sent money to where it was needed the most - to the resistance as I said, Pierre was one of the leaders of the resistance. There were many, but Pierre controlled the action around the area of Normandy. He and his people were very instrumental in assisting the Allied invasion on D-Day by sabotaging redirecting many Nazi forces moments before the actual invasion. Much of this was possible because of the money that arrived every month. Month after month, for two years, money arrived for Pierre and his cause from Manny. It never failed! It literally saved the day. No, Pierre never knew who Manny was, only that he sent money for food, clothes, gasoline and many other important things.

But years later, we know who Manny was, that silent guardian angel of the French underground. So do you. He was one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, and a fine gentleman. It's a Little Known Fact that a very important part of the success of the French underground came from a source they never knew: Emmanuel Goldenberg, or as you knew him, the very fine actor Edward G. Robinson.

P.S. Not many know that he was a famous actor in the Yiddish theatre before he became a movie star.
