How’d You Like to Meet the Holiest Man Alive?

The Metzora is the consummate Outsider. Of his own accord, he exists on the margins of society. And yet his tormented ostracism is the place where he finds his innermost connection with G-d.
Tzaraat, Teshuvah, Tazria-Metzora, Metzora

Wonderful as always! You give over the Rebbe's insights in a fascinating and engaging way. Todah! And Shabbat shalom, even though it's already Shabbat in Eretz ha Kodesh. I wish I was there... Reply

holiness elicits repentance Gossip, slander, and spreading contention weakens those who spread it. What is going on inside them manifests externally. The bacterium finds a suitable host in those who are spiritually weakened. Spiritual weakness doesn't produce physical strength, does it? I speak from my own experience as a miserable, anti-social argumentative malcontent. It has left me looking like a lizard. I leave a trail of scales while I molt daily. A slight breeze creates a dust cloud. This behavior leaves one despondent, but knowing there is only one solution; repentance. It's a built in characteristic of self preservation, no? The Kohen going out to meet the Metzora shows that it is always holiness that draws the repentant,not the other way around. It is holiness that elicits repentance, and only holiness can return the repentant from exile, rather than the unrepentant unwittingly venturing onto holy ground and being annihilated by the business end of a Scotch-brite pad, although I may try that.
