Parsha Tzav 5767: The Constancy of the Jews

by Moshe Burt

In our Parsha, Tzav is Moshe’s command from Hashem to Aaron HaKohen and his sons to take up and clothe themselves in their Vestments, their garments of service in the Mishkan, and to begin their daily Avodah (service and offerings in the Mishkan).

For seven days, Moshe taught Aaron HaKohen and his sons the laws of their Avodah in the Mishkan. (You might say that they were given, as they term it in the US, OJT from Shemayim.) On the eighth day, Aaron and his sons began their Avodah. [...]  Click here to read more.

Gush Katif evacuees living in Nitzan don’t know who to turn to. They fear temporary site will become permanent, claim authorities will not take responsibility for them.

Gush Katif evacuees living in the mobile-home site Nitzan were hoping to celebrate Pessach, the festival of freedom, in a permanent location. However, the harsh reality is that a year and a half after they were removed from their homes in the Gaza strip, there is no solution for them in sight. [...]  Click here to read more.

Attempt to Reestablish Homesh: The Right Move Singularly?

Commentary;

Sometime on Monday afternoon, groups of religious and nationalist teenagers and young adults will attempt to enter and reestablish the town of Homesh, one of 4 Shomron towns where Jews were expelled in August of 2005 as part of the expulsion of Jews from Gush Katif.

This author questions a strategy of making this move as a singular action comprised of a few thousand people rather than a part of a wider action involving tens or hundreds of thousands or more; including numerous diversions and whether this action should itself be a diversion for a wider action, perhaps aimed at government change or at spreading the police too thin and thus shutting down the country. [...]  Click here to read more.

Israeli Hypocrisy and Lack of Torah Morality: Fuel Driving Anti-Semitism?

Former Chief Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau spoke about anti-Semitism before the recent Jerusalem Conference. He cited the saying of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai in Gemora with a question and with his observations;

“A law: It is known that Esau hates Jacob” – and asked, “Why the unusual phraseology? What type of law can this be? It sounds very fatalistic, as if nothing can change it.” Rabbi Lau then explained, in the name of some commentators, that the phenomenon of anti-Semitism described by Rabbi Shimon is “akin to a law taught to Moses at Sinai, which also uses this word ‘law.’ It is something that has no explanation and is not in dispute, such as the fact that tefillin must be black and square. It is the same with anti-Semitism: you can look for reasons for it, but in the end, it’s just an axiom. This hatred is a given, permanent phenomenon.”  [...]  Click here to read more.
