The Path of the Humble

If we were truly humble, we would not be forever searching higher paths on the mountaintops. We would look in the simple places, in the practical things that need to be done.

True, all these places lie in a world of falsehood. With only a little more light, we would all realize that none of this is really necessary.

But the soul that knows its place knows that the great and lofty G‑d can most be found in the simple act of lending a hand or a comforting word in a world of falsehood and delusions.

Reshimat Nefesh Hashefalah, cited and elucidated in Likkutei Sichot, vol. 16, pp. 41ff.

Weekly Video Program
“On the fifteenth day of the seventh month is a seven-day festival of Sukkot to G‑d . . . The eighth day shall be a holy occasion for you . . . a [day of] detention (‘atzeret’).”
[This is comparable to] a king who invited his children for a banquet of several days. When it came time for them to go, he said to them: “My children, please, stay with me one more day—your parting is difficult for me . . .”
— Leviticus 23:34–36; Rashi’s commentary, ibid.

Parshah
Shoftim


"Justice" -- the very concept is said to be a Jewish contribution to the world. A glance at this week's Parshah shows why. Almost 3,300 years ago, Moses is speaking about equality before the law, due process in the investigation and prosecution of crimes, protection of criminals from vigilante vengeance, curbs on the behavior of kings, rules and ethics in warfare, and collective responsibility of the community for the safety of the transient wayfarer
