The Rabbi’s Message
“And they traveled from Elim and they encamped by
Yam Suf” (Bemidbar 33:10)
Elim hints to the word alimut, which means violence. Yam Suf
hints to the word sof, the end. They traveled from the trait of
violence. How? By coming to the trait of looking at the end of a
Violence induces both actions and words. There is the
physical violence of hitting or pushing someone, and there is the
verbal violence of shouting at someone or putting him down. Any
form of violence not in self-defense is against the principles of the
Torah. What is the main cause of violence? Frustration and anger!
When you become frustrated or angry, you are likely to lash out at
someone. When you remember your true purpose in this world,
most things that get other people angry will not affect you very
strongly. Also, the more you appreciate life and the more joyous
you feel, the less angry you will become. By remembering the end
of each person, you will gain a greater appreciation for life. You
will value your time and utilize every opportunity for growth. This
awareness will keep you far away from any form of violence.
Shabbat Shalom. Rabbi Shmuel Choueka
