Short thought



And they journeyed from . . . and they camped at . . . (33:3-49)

Our chapter opens, “These are the journeys of the children of Israel.” However, it then proceeds to recount not the journeys, but the forty-two encampments at which they stopped during their sojourn in the Sinai Desert!

Yet these encampments were not ends unto themselves–only way stations and stepping stones to advance the nation of Israel in their goal of attaining the Promised Land. So the stops themselves are referred to as “journeys.”

The same is true of the journey of life. Pauses, interruptions and setbacks are an inadvertent part of a person’s sojourn on earth. But when everything a person does is toward the goal of attaining the “Holy Land”-the sanctification of the material world-these, too, are “journeys.” Ultimately, they are shown to have been the true motors of progression, each an impetus to the realization of one’s mission and purpose in life.

(From the teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe)









It has been said that there are only two kinds of people in the world. There are those who wake up in the morning and say, “Good morning, G-d,” and there are those who wake up in the morning and say, “Good G-d, it’s morning.”


Moshiach and the future Redemption

Every book of Torah is filled with that idea. Every mitzvah we do is part of creating that world. Every moment of our history, that hope beats in our hearts.
