Korach – Korach

This week’s Torah Reading is Korach. It is also Rosh Chodes Tamuz, the New Month of Tamuz.

In the Torah Reading, we find an unusual test. The Al-mighty instructs Moshe to collect a staff from each of the tribal leaders and one from Aaron. They were then placed in the Temple. The following day Moshe brought them out and only the staff of Aaron had changed. His staff had blossomed and bore ripe almonds. This clearly showed the Jewish Nation that Aaron was the chosen one to indeed be the Cohen Gadol – High Priest.

In our own lives we often have doubts as to what path or paths we should follow. We need to look for the signs that show us what will make things blossom and grow in a positive way. When really in doubt we may need to seek outside assistance from our Moshe and of course we need to pray to be shown the right path and success in our choices.

We begin a new month, Tamuz, and we need to grow in our adding light in a period of darkness as the moon indeed does. Let us choose the correct paths and this will ultimately lead to the end of exile and the building of the 3rd Holy Temple.
