Loved this lesson, so many insights and layers. Wonderfully explained and brought together. I've learned so much and especially the revelation at the end of how we must do things that appear not loving in order to be loving for HaShem. Pinchas had a beautiful endorsement from G-d. He did what was right. Even doing what's right for the wrong reasons will lead to doing what's right for the right reason eventually. Brilliant, such a good lesson. Step up. Thank you.Shalom. Reply

At first, I wasn't sure that this video lesson would interest me as I was well aware of the Pinchas story. However, it was not long that I found myself being drawn into the details that Rashi brought to light. What an awesome lesson that I will remember and continue to learn from as time goes by. The human psychology that Rabbi Shishler taught in this lesson was so worthwhile. Thank you. Reply
