Crown Molding

By Rabbi Eli Glaser

Let the work begin.

The book of Shemos concludes with the construction of the Mishkan and its holy vessels – one of which is the Shulchan, the golden table in which 12 loaves of “show-bread” miraculously remained fresh through the entire week.

The Shulchan epitomized the relationship a Jew must have with his physical sustenance, teaching us to always acknowledge the source of our nourishment and how HaShem expects us to behave with food. If we concretize this lesson and eat appropriately we achieve royalty, grandeur and true enjoyment. If we abuse this privilege, succumbing to our whims and follies – even while observing the highest levels of kashrus – we fall to depths of despair and isolation, all in the name of a “good time”.

Sound like hyperbole and exaggeration? How can this table, and the particular manner in which it was commanded to be built, quite possibly express this profound principle?

“He made a gold crown for its molding all around,” (Shemos 36: 12). In parshas Vayakhel, Betzalel, the Divinely-gifted expert craftsman, assembles the Shulchan, the plans for which were originally spelled out in parshas Teruma – 11 chapters earlier (Shemos 25: 25).

The Kli Yakar explains the significance of the crown molding surrounding the edge of the Shulchan, and how this seemingly simple “accessory” embodies the essential element for properly relating to food. He concentrates on the word זר (pronounced “Zair”) which is translated as the word “crown” in this verse.

“He should make an enclosure for his physical desires so there shouldn’t be a small opening for them (to manifest). Rather he should corral them and give them a fixed limit. (The verse says) ‘And you should make a gold crown for its molding all around,’ because when he encloses his physical desires, he is a free person and a king. To contrast with someone who breaches his boundaries (of physical desire) he will always be of poor wisdom. And (the verse) mentions זר (to teach that) if he merits (to put boundaries around his desires) he will be a “Zair”– crown royalty. If he doesn’t merit (to put boundaries around his desires) he will be a “Zahr” – stranger and alien, because he will leave his wealth and strength to others.”

Boundaries and guidelines are not restrictive, debilitating or confining, rather they are enlightening, enabling and elevating. The Kli Yakar is teaching us that only through putting suitable borders around our physical cravings will we have the opportunity for spiritual freedom and royalty. This means that a free person is someone who controls his desires – and appreciates the restraints – even if they feel uncomfortable and temporarily challenging. He will wear the crown of kingship and merit a royal relationship with the Creator.

Conversely, a person who breaks his bonds of spiritual priorities for pursuit of an immediate physical fix will always be of poor wisdom, left confused, confounded and perpetually coveting his next craving. A person in the throes of desire doesn’t think clearly, ending up a stranger even to his true essence – and estranged in his relationship with HaShem. The blessings from on High originally directed toward him will end up going to others because he alienated himself from the intrinsically deserving person he started out to be, ending up in a place of desperation and spiritual isolation – all for the sake of appeasing his appetite for instant gratification. That’s one mighty expensive meal.

Good שבת.

A man was being kycn his Chometz, slowly reading the Nusach from a Hagadah, concluding with the words:  לבטל וליהוי כעפרא דארעא. A wise man standing nearby said to him:  לאו דוקא כעפרא דארעא       . When asked what he meant by those words, the wise man explained that we say something similar to that three times a day at the end of Shemona Esrei  : ונפשי כעפר לכל תהיה.  One who understands what these words mean, says them with the proper Kavanah and behaves accordingly, may certainly annul his Chometz and treat it like dust. “However,” the wise man concluded, “one who is slighted by small things, and takes offense easily, such as you did yesterday when someone accidentally bumped into you as he stepped back from Shemona Esrei, might not effect a sufficient Bitul simply by calling his Chometz dust of the earth”.

Prayer & Eating - Our Avodah of the Day

By Rabbi Eli Glaser
SOVEYA                                                                                             
CHANGING THE JEWISH WORLD ONE POUND AT A TIME


A common quip to describe Jewish holidays: “They tried to kill us. We won. Let’s eat!”

It does seem like much of our time during the chagim is spent staring at a siddur, or at a plate of food. All kidding aside, it must be that these two acts possess the opportunity to maximize the potential of the day, and to fulfill the transcendent promise inherent in these moments. Even with their outward contrast – prayer being an instance of spiritual reflection, and eating an event of physical indulgence - Chazal orchestrated both as awesome occasions to connect with our Creator.

In fact, tefilla and achilla are nothing less than the principal form of service for every Jew, for every day of the year – not just on the Yomim Tovim. The verse in Ezekiel (41:22) in describing the vessels of the Third Temple says, “the Altar was of wood, three amos high, and its length two amos, and its corners and its length and its walls of wood. And he (the angel) said to me: ‘this is the Table that is before HaShem.’ ”

The gemara in Menachos (97a) learns a prophetic lesson from this verse which begins with an account of the Altar and concludes with a reference to a “Table”, serving as the source for a well-known concept in yiddishkite  - now that we don’t have a Bais HaMikdash, our (dining room and kitchen) tables will serve as the replacement for the Altar in the Temple. “Rabi Yochanan and Reish Lakish both said: during the period in which the Holy Temple stood, the Altar would atone for a person. But now that the Holy Temple is not standing, a person’s table atones for him.”

The Be’er Mayim Chaim , in the beginning of parshas Tzav, explains that prayer and eating are the primary acts of service for all Jews in place of the avodah  that was lost after the destruction of the Temple. This Shabbos, we begin the book of Vayikra which outlines in great detail the many korbonos we had the opportunity to offer during the time of the Mishkan and First and Second Temples. It’s commonly known and relatively easy to understand that prayer today is in place of our service in the Beis HaMikdash. Both are sublime circumstances to elevate ourselves above our daily, mundane tasks.

But how can eating effect the same result? If anything, it seems to be a spiritual stumbling block for so many of us. Propelled by our physical desires, and controlled by our appetites for the tastiest morsels and yearnings for more and more, we’re left feeling chained to our bodies instead of connected to our souls – anything but spiritually enriched and closer to Hashem.

The Maharsha (Sukkos 45b) explains that by sacrificing our taivos  for more, and literally leaving behind that extra serving which we so much want to consume, we gain control over our guf, thereby elevating our neshamos and achieving great atonement. This is not a recipe for restriction. We’re supposed to make sure to eat enough of the right kinds of foods, and make them as tasty and enjoyable as we can.

This is a recipe for redemption. The singular way everyone can help rebuild the Temple and bring Moshiach is to focus on the service that is solely in their hands to accomplish. We have to first take responsibility for our own avodah and ruchniyus if we want to make the biggest impact in ending this golus – a timely lesson as Pesach approaches.

Put down the fork, and bring the geula. Good שבת.

קאוד: וועל אויס אלע

Yesterday, the second day of Nissan, the Parah Aduma was burned under the auspices of Moshe Rabbeinu and Aharon HaKohein.  Today, the third day of Nissan, is the first day that the unparalleled and purifying Parah Aduma waters were first sprinkled on anyone ever!  Accordingly, it is a day that holds special tahara capability, individually and for our nation, and we should be sure to use that capability by purifying ourselves in some way.  Is there anything that you can think of that could use some tahara--or do you not even need the Mai Parah?  Perhaps you can rethink it, because the time is auspicious, and the opportunity is great.  For some on-point ideas, we refer you to Chapters 16 and 17 of the Sefer Mesilas Yeshorim (which is on the topic of tahara).  You may think that if so few know about this, can it really be that effective?  Please consider, on the other hand, that when there are fewer customers purchasing, there will be much greater selection, and much better pricing!

קאוד: וועל אויס אלע

 We most definitely should not let these Emunah-filled days go by without some Bli Neder attempt, commitment, or improvement in our daily Tefillah or brachos recitation.  Even if one would take just one Bracha in Shemone Esrei (such as Re’ai VeAnyeinu or Tekah BeShofar Gadol LeCheiruseinu) with attention to the specific meaning of each word, or stop and think for one moment before making a bracha on a food item about the nourishing and meaningful gift Hashem is about to bestow upon him, he will have demonstrated an elevated and TIMELY level of Emunah.  It is important to note that just as a caring woman cannot afford to wait until the last moment to rid her home of Chometz and begin her Pesach preparations, so too must we all--men and women alike--now move meaningfully and powerfully in the direction of true faith, belief and trust.  We note that the Mishna Berurah (Orach Chaim 429, seif katan 7) explains that the reason we do not recite Tachanun at all this month is that because most of the month--the first twelve days (because of the Nesi’im Dedications) and then Yom Tov itself--have kedusha associated with them, the entire month is made ‘KULO KODESH’ (these are the words of the Mishna Berurah--not ours!).  Let us utilize this Kedusha, which infuses even a weekday like today to its fullest--by truly enhancing our lives with Emunah-filled days!

SHEDDING THE SHIBUD!  One Rav remarked to us that every person should go into Pesach with one less complete shibud upon him--and that a prime area for tikun should be in the cell phone area.  Many cannot go for more than a few minutes--and certainly a few hours without looking at the cell phone for calls, emails or texts.  Many are seen typing on the streets; others read or type as family members talk to them; others walk into shul; and other public places with gadgets affixed to their ears; and some talk in stores and on elevators. In truth, every person who owns a cell phone has at least one aspect of a shibud that he can release and relieve himself of.  Now, in the week before Pesach would be a wonderful time to drop at least that shibud--to more properly celebrate the Zeman Cheiruseinu!

RECEIVED FROM A READER:  a. “Chazal relate: ‘Shnaim Asar Elef Zugos Talmidim Haya Lo l’Rebbi Akiva V’lo Nohagu Kovod Zeh Bazeh--Rebbi Akiva had 12,000 pairs of students who did not conduct themselves respectfully with each other.’  Why do Chazal say that Rebbi Akiva had two times 12,000 talmidim?  Why not just say that he had 24,000 students that were not respectful to each other??
 
The answer may be that, of course, when they were all together in the dining room and one asked the other to pass the Corn Flakes, or when saying “Good Morning or “Good Night”,  they were all very gracious and answered with a smile.  But that’s not where the true test was.  The test presents itself when two chavrusos sit down for hours together and one comes up with a good “kashe--question” or a “s’vorah--line of reasoning” that is enlightening--is it accepted graciously?  When one pours out his heart to the other about a difficult situation that he is going through is the other empathetic--or is his mind elsewhere?  The same is true in relationships between spouses, siblings etc.  Chazal here are not referring to dealings by and among acquaintances.  They are referring to the close relationships between “Zugos”, people close to each other, those we perhaps take for granted.  That’s the true test of “Noheg Kovod Zeh Bazeh”.

Automobile Opportunities for the Torah Jew’

קאוד: וועל אויס אלע

In the past, we have provided suggestions for making the car driving or car riding experience a more worthwhile and spiritually rewarding one. We have mentioned, for example, the practice of someone from Atlanta , Georgia reviewing the Six Constant Mitzvos upon entering the car, utilizing the car mirrors. Others may recite Tehillim Chapter 130 as a Tefillah for a safe local trip. Parents doing carpool may have in mind that they are assisting others study Torah, or especially fulfilling the Mitzvah of assisting children in the study of Torah. Yet others may use the time to practice patience by not honking or complaining in situations when others may do otherwise. A person can look for opportunities for Hachnosas Orchim for people who need a lift after shopping. The car guest can share unique, complimentary words and/or a Dvar Torah. Red lights can be special opportunities reserved for thinking about improvement in a particular area. After 120 years, each and every one of us would all like to say that we used modern transportation well and to our advantage

קאוד: וועל אויס אלע

Make it a point not to look into other people’s cars--even if they pull up next to you at a light (and even if you can tell they are looking into your car!).  Additionally, when at a light, don’t scan the streets and sidewalks around you--in all likelihood you will be seeing things that you don’t want to see!
 
Hakhel Note:  We may definitely state that these suggestions should not be limited to a person driving (or passengers in the car)--but to pedestrians on the street walking as well. Most certainly, as the summer begins to warm in the Northern Hemisphere, the Torah Jew’s approach should be to keep his head down and pre-occupy himself with meaningful thoughts--until he reaches his destination. Oh, how many Mitzvos will be accomplished--and aveiros avoided.

קאוד: וועל אויס אלע

FROM A READER: “For your ‘Automobile Opportunities for the Torah Jew’ list:
 
(1)  I had begun saying “Thank You, Hashem” whenever I would come to a green light, especially at difficult intersections.  Then it was pointed out to me that I could add David HaMelech’s great advice (Tehillim 81:11): ‘Harchev Picha Va’amal’aiyhu--open wide your mouth and I will fill it.’  The footnote in the Artscroll Tehillim enlarges:  ‘Harchev Picha --open wide your mouth, with requests, and I will fulfill them.’  Hashem urges K’lal Yisrael to ask of Him all that its heart desires (Ibn Ezra).  By asking Hashem for everything that he needs, a person demonstrates his faith that Hashem’s power and generosity know no bounds (Yerushalmi, Ta’anit 3:6).  So now every time I say Thank You, Hashem, I also add a bakasha because I trust that Hashem can give me what I want or need (if it’s good for me!).
 

קאוד: וועל אויס אלע

(2)  I have heard of people who will offer a short Tefillah whenever an emergency vehicle goes past with sirens blaring--that the person in the ambulance have a Refuah Shleimah, or the fire not end up being serious and that no life will be harmed or lost.
 
(3) Many of my friends report that listening to Torah tapes while driving helps them to not react with Middos Lo Tovos (road rage) to the traffic situations around them.”

A Little Oil Goes A Long Way
Rabbi Eli Glaser

The נרות of Chanukah remind us once again of the miracle HaShem made in the Beis HaMikdash by allowing the flames of the Menorah to burn for eight days from only one flask of oil.

One of the many lessons we can learn from the Menorah is that all the knowledge that HaShem put into creation is solely for the sake of bettering ourselves and our avodas HaShem. The six outer flames represented the different disciplines of worldly wisdom, but they all pointed toward the center branch to show that the function of these disciplines needs to be directed by Torah and for the ultimate purpose of kedusha.

In addition, the Menorah itself was fashioned from a single chunk of solid gold, teaching that all forms of knowledge stem from the same source – nothing is outside and independent of the al-Mighty and His Torah.

This lesson is very relevant for today’s society and the issues facing our community. We study the details of this world to understand how to best utilize the laws of nature for our benefit. Even though we were miraculously saved during the time of Chanukah, Jewish law clearly prohibits us from relying on miracles.

If something is known to be harmful, then the Torah commands us to abstain from that substance or behavior – such as smoking, or eating unhealthy or excessive quantities of food. Perhaps deep fried latkes and endless jelly donuts meet this description – for it’s a bit difficult to see how they actually commemorate the festivities of Chanukah.

Using oil in our food to remember the miracle of the Menorah is certainly an important custom. But in order to best encompass the actual events that transpired, we need to understand exactly what kind of oil we want to emulate.

The fuel for the Menorah was שמן זית זך כתית"- pure, pressed olive oil.” Rashi tells us that the olives were gently squeezed to expose only the first, pure drop of oil. The rest of the olive was then sent away to be crushed in the traditional manner to release the remainder of the oil for meal offerings.

Therefore, in order to best replicate the oil from the Menorah, shouldn’t we specifically not use an abundance of oil to deep fry and saturate our foods – but rather add a single drop of pure, extra virgin oil to a delicious dish or salad exclusively for the sake of the miracle? Wouldn’t this be the ideal way to celebrate? And wouldn’t this incorporate the larger lesson of the Menorah which is to learn from the wisdom of nature that HaShem put into Creation and not indulge in behaviors that clearly cause us harm – such as clogging our arteries with excess fat? Something to think about as we try to allow the light of Chanukah to continue to burn in us even after the last candle flickers out. Good

Seeing The World Straight
When the light that enters our eye reaches the back of the lens to form a picture the objects appear upside down and backwards. Only when the image reaches the brain is the image corrected, allowing us to see right side up.

As we know, "nothing is for nothing" and everything was created with Hashem's infinite wisdom. This begs the question of why would Hashem make our visual experience so roundabout? Why would our initial viewing experience be, out of all things, upside down?

The gemara (Bava Basra 10b) tells the story of Rav Yosef the son of Rav Yehoshua who became very ill and lost consciousness. When he awoke his father asked him, "What did you see?" He told his father, "Olam Hafuch Ra'isi Elyonim L'Mata V'Tachtonim L'Mata", I saw an upside down world. The rich people who are regarded here as the upper echelons of society were considered lowly people, while the poor wise people who do good deeds and are considered the lower class here were considered the upper crust over there. His father answered him that he was mistaken. He did not see an upside down world, but rather the world as it truly is. The world we live in is the upside down world.

Every one of our 248 physical limbs mirrors a spiritual limb. Our eyes are our main interface with the world beyond us. Yet the image the world projects is upside down. Only when the image enters our brain and we use our mind to process it, do we make heads and tails of it. The same holds true for the story behind the picture. What we see at first glance without using our Sechel is always upside down. Just like the brain processes images and straightens them out, so too our brain must use its unbiased intelligence to make sense of the things we see.

Just like flipping an image, understanding the story is meant to be simple and a routine operation as the Pasuk (Koheles 7:29) says, "Asa HaElokim Es Ha'Adam Yashar", Hashem made a person straight. Unfortunately we all have forces within us that interfere with this process, be they poor Middos or selfish motives. We let these things take over our brain, as the pasuk concludes "V'Heima Bikshu Cheshbonos Rabbim". But the choice is our to see the world with clarity if only we choose to do so.

From a reader: “What is the source of the Minhag of eating latkes on Chanukah? I have heard that the word “lateh” in Yiddish means patch, and that the reason we eat latkes on Chanukah is to symbolize that the breaches made by the Yevanim in the Bais HaMikdash were only temporarily patched. The latkes teach that although we were able to mend the breach--Chanukah was not the complete Yeshua. Based upon this, I understand much better what you brought in the name of the Ba’al Shem Tov that the reason Chanukah does not have its own Mesechta is because the Mesechta of Chanukah will not be over until Moshiach comes and completes that Tahara of the Bais Hamikdash!”

Hakhel Note: This is an excellent thought. With this, we can understand the difference in the endings of Al HaNissim on Purim and on Chanukah. On Purim, we end Al HaNissim with finality: “VeSalu Osso VeEs Banav Al HaEitz”--Haman and his sons were hanged, and the lives of Bnei Yisroel were now able to be saved. With respect to Chanukah, however, the wars in fact continued for many years afterwards, and therefore Chazal instituted the days of Chanukah the next year, as the Al HaNissim concludes, as days which were “LeHodos U’LeHallel LeShimcha HaGadol.” This is an allusion to the Geulah as an ongoing process based upon our relationship with and closeness to HaKadosh Baruch Hu! Thus, although we are now several days past Chanukah, we can continue to strive for the ultimate goal of Chanukah--which is the Geulah Shleimah and the final Bais HaMikdash BeKedusha U’Veteharah!

HaRav Mattisyahu related: “I walked into a Shul in which someone was reading Parshas HaMon on the Tuesday of Parshas B’Shalach, as is the custom in some Chassidic circles. Another individual walked in and noticed that he was reading Parshas HaMon. He exclaimed, “You might as well stop doing that. I have been reading it for 50 years on this very day, and nothing has ever happened for me! HaRav Salomon reprimanded this person. “How could you say that it hasn’t helped you?! Have you had what to eat for the last 50 years? Have you made Shabbos and Yom Tov? You are wearing clothing, aren’t you?”
