The Soul’s Essential Elevation via Torah
Declares G-d, "My flame – the Torah – is in your hands, and your flame – the soul – is in Mine. If you guard Mine, I shall guard yours" (Midrash Devarim 4:4). But is not the soul too "G-d's flame"? In addressing this question, this class offers new insight into why the Divine soul, which is naturally drawn and connected to G-d, requires Torah altogether? (Maamar Bahaalotecha 5729)

Parshah Curiosities: Behaalotecha
An intriguing overview of the biblical account of the Sinai desert journeys led by the Ark of G-d segues into two of the most famous yet least understood verses in the entire Chumash. It was with this formula that Moses prayerfully petitioned G-d for our protection, and tucked into its folds are the profoundest answer to the tragic yet historic pernicious anti-Semitism that has persisted for millennia. The timely and burning question: “Why do they hate us?” is frankly and candidly approached from an entirely new perspective. Discover a Torah-true take, and find out why identifying real haters empowers us to defeat them.

"So it was, whenever the ark set out, Moses would say, Arise, O Lord, may Your enemies be scattered and may those who hate You flee from You. And when it came to rest he would say, Repose O Lord, among the myriads of thousands of Israel." (Numbers 10:35-36) These two verses are surrounded by an inverted letter "nun" at the beginning and end. Nowhere else in the Torah does the inverted nun appear. What is its meaning?
