Parsha Korach
Korach’s audacious claim that Moses and Aaron self-appointed themselves to positions of leadership was put to the test with an invitation to offer the sacred incense together with Aaron. Moses then petitions G-d not to accept their offering. But why would Moses make such a request if he knew with absolute certainty that Aaron’s appointment would be vindicated by G-d? The answer lies in a deeper understanding of the interplay between the individual and community. (Likutei Sichos , volume 33)
