Short thought


And G-d happened upon Balaam (23:4)

Regarding G-d’s appearances to Moses, the Torah uses the word vayikra (“and He called”) which is an expression of closeness and love; whilst to the prophets of the idolatrous nations the word used is vayikar (“and He happened upon”) — an expression that connotes temporality and promiscuity.

(Midrash Rabbah; Rashi)

The hallmark of evil and unholiness is an attitude of “It just happened.” Nothing is coincidental to the Jew; every event is purposeful and significant.

(Chassidic Saying)


Hospital regulations require a wheel chair for patients being discharged. However, while working as a student aide, Sam found one elderly gentleman already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet, who insisted he didn’t need Sam’s help to leave the hospital. After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let Sam wheel him to the elevator. On the way down Sam asked him if his wife was meeting him. I don’t know,” he said. “She is till upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown.

Moshiach and the Future Redemption


And G-d desired to “dwell” – to be sensed and acknowledged – in this “low” and hostile climate.

This wish will be realized with the coming of Moshiach. And in order to reach that goal, we need first to undergo galut.
