9 Tamuz 5778
Erev Shabbat Kodesh
Some highlights from the parashah:
Ashes of the Red Heifer, Miriam HaNevia dies, Aharon HaCohen dies, nobody wants to let us cross their land, armies come out to fight us, complaints, complaints, complaints, a plague of snakes, more deaths, Moshe Rabeinu hits the rock and is condemned to die in the wilderness...
What a catastrophe this "redemption" has become. It seems like death is waiting around every corner and where is the promised "land flowing with milk and honey?"
We brought it all on ourselves. And nothing much has changed.
