An ‘Eagle’s Eye’

19:4 …and I carried you on eagles' wings… Rashi quotes Chazal on this verse, telling us that just as an eagle caries its young on its wings and says “Better the arrows should enter me than my child”, so too Hashem protects Klal Yisrael at His own risk. The question is obvious: What risk are [...]

עיני הנשר

"וָאֶשָּׂא אֶתְכֶם עַל-כַּנְפֵי נְשָׁרִים..." (שמות יט:ד) רש"י מביא מחז"ל: "אבל הנשר הזה אינו מתירא אלא מן האדם שמא יזרוק בו חץ לפי שאין עוף אחר פורח על גביו לכך נותנו על כנפיו אומר מוטב יכנס החץ בי ולא בבני אף אני עשיתי כן". והשאלה ברורה: ה' יכול לעשות הכל, א"כ איזה סיכון אישי יש לו [...]

In-stance

One may think that our legislative halachos – whether they be about dinim or honoring one’s parents, or other self-understood mitzvahs – are to be understood as Hashem’s version of things which people naturally understand. A very famous question asked about the 10 commandments is, why is the mitzvah of honoring one’s parents on the [...]

בעמדה

אפשר לחשוב כי המשפטים שלנו - בין אם הם דיני ממנות או מצוות מובנות מאליהן כמו כיבוד ההורים - הם רק הביצוע של ה' של דברים אשר אנשים מבינים באופן הגיוני. שאלה מפורסמת מאוד נשאלת על עשרת הדברות: מדוע מצוות כיבוד אב ואם נרשמה על הלוח הראשון, שכן המצוות האחרות בלוח זו הן חוקים בין [...]

The Servant Is Served

There is a story told about how the Beis Halevi went “all out” to serve a guest in his home, giving him whatever he needed. The guest felt uncomfortable being served by the “Gadol Hador” and several times throughout the visit would say to the Beis Halevi “Please don’t trouble yourself”, “You are not my servant”, “I [...]

לקבל תורה, לתת שירות

וַיָּבֹא אַהֲרֹן וְכֹל זִקְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל לֶאֱכָל לֶחֶם עִם חֹתֵן מֹשֶׁה לִפְנֵי הָאֱלֹהִים (שמות יח:יב) רש"י: "וּמֹשֶׁה הֵיכָן הָלַךְ? וַהֲלֹא הוּא שֶׁיָּצָא לִקְרָאתוֹ וְגָרַם לוֹ אֶת כָּל הַכָּבוֹד? אֶלָּא שֶׁהָיָה עוֹמֵד וּמְשַׁמֵּשׁ לִפְנֵיהֶם." מספרים על בעל בית הלוי שהיה יוצא מגדרו כדי לשרת את אלו שהתארחו בביתו, ומספק להם את כל צרכיהם. פעם התארח אצלו אדם [...]
