BACH Weekly Newsletter - The Whole Is Greater Than The Sum Of The Parts

08/10/2017 04:31:32 PM

Aug10

BACH Weekly Newsletter

From the Desk of Rabbi Greene

In the first paragraph of the Shema we are commanded to love Hashem with all of our heart, our soul and our might. In the second paragraph we are commanded to love Hashem with all of our heart and soul but it does not command us to love Him with all of our might. Why the difference?

 

The Shem M’Shmuel  (R’ Shmuel Bornsztein `1855-1926) explains that the Hebrew word in the Chumash for “might” is M’odechah – which literally means “your veryness”.  We are commanded to go beyond our natural limits in our service to act G-dly. Hashem is instructing each of us serve Him with our heart and soul and to go beyond our natural limits  - to strive to do this very well.

 

The first paragraph is written in the singular. It is talking to each Jew. Instructing each of us to push beyond our natural abilities. The second paragraph is written in the plural. When people work as a group to act G-dly there is no need to command us to go beyond our natural limits. Synergy happens whereby “the whole is greater than the sum of the parts”. When we join together to do good, quite naturally, the ordinary becomes extraordinary.

BACH Weekly Newsletter - Where True Power Lies

08/03/2017 06:32:52 PM

Aug3

BACH Weekly Newsletter

From the Desk of Rabbi Greene

The Shema  (6:5) commands us “to love HaShem with all your “hearts” (in the plural). Rashi tells us that the Torah is instructing us love HaShem with both our inclinations - the yetzer hatov (our nobler drives) and the yetzer hara (our negative drives).

 

The obvious question is: How can one possibly use the yetzer hara – a drive that, by definition, wants to pull us away from thinking beyond ourselves - for good?

Rav Tzaddok HaKohen  (1823-1900) writes that focusing on our negative helps us identify our personal strengths. Just as an army identifies the center of the enemy’s power in order to cripple them at their core, so too, the area that the yetzer hara tests and entices a person is the same area where we have the greatest potential for connection and growth.

 

If one has a passion for money, let him channel that drive into tzadaka. If one loves building, let him put his love into helping communities build shuls, schools, hospitals, mikvaos . . . If one is full of lust, let him shower his love and affection o his wife to build a warm, loving home.

 

Nothing in Creation is innately bad. All energy can be directed to good.  The Yetzer Hara is a force that tries to divert one’s energy into destructiveness. R’ Tzadok is telling us to identify the areas of our personality he is mounting his strongest attacks and focus specifically on those areas to serve Hashem the fullest. This is where our true power lies.

 

Good Shabbos

BACH Weekly Newsletter

From the Desk of Rabbi Greene

These are the sons of Benyamin after their families: . . .  forty-five thousand and six hundred . . . These are the sons of Dan  . . . sixty-four thousand and four hundred .  (26:41-42)

 

Benyamin had ten sons while Dan had only one son, and that son was deaf (Sotah 13). Nevertheless, the tribe of Dan was larger than the tribe of Benyamin. From this we see that if Hashem wants it, a person can do more with one son than with ten.

 

The Chofetz Chaim says that the same is true for wealth. One person can be poor and delighted with what he has, while another can be wealthy and be miserable.

 

Remember: Just like things that matter are rarely made of matter,  things that count most often cannot be counted.

 

Good Shabbos
