    Noach:
    Chasam Sofer says that if tzohar is a window or a precious stone is dependent whether we judge Noach for praise or shame. Only a truly pious person saved on his own zechusim can see the destruction of the wicked. Lot and his wife were not allowed to look back. If he judged for praise, it was a window, otherwise it was a precious stone, so he could not see through.

    Lech Lecha:

    ื“ืข ืžื” ืœืžืขืœื” ืžืžืš – You can conclude from the fact that you can walk that there is a Universal Mover, as the Rambam says that if something moves, someone had to put it in motion. (Sefer Amudeho Shivo)

    There is a Midrash peliah, ืืžืจื™ ื ื ืื—ื•ืชื™ ืืช – ืžื›ืืŸ ืฉืฉื•ื—ื˜ื™ื ืœื—ื•ืœื” ื‘ืฉื‘ืช, the Rav Chezkuni asks how do we know that Avraham Avinu will be killed. maybe they will commit adultary? Then they wil sin at every beila, but when they kill him will be one sin. Similarly, the Ran asks why do we slaughter for the sick on shabbos and don’t give him nevelah? Then he would sin with eating every kezayis. Therefore, it is better to do one sin then multiple and since Avraham Avinu was afraid they will kill him, we slaughter on shabbos rather than give nevalah.

    Maybe through the above that we can come to the recognition of Hashem from our walking, we can explain the midrash on it which asks whether we can do kabolas ol malchus shomayim when walking, the midrash says that we cannot, we must stay still but the rest from veohavto we can either stand or walk. We canโ€™t have the proper kavono when we walk even though it brings us to come to realize the existence of Hashem.

    Parashas Vayeshev

    Rashi says that Yaakov Avinu wanted to live in peace. HKBH said. isn’t it enough for tzadikim to have the world to come, they also want this world, so the worry about Josef fell on him. The question is, why does Hashem not want tzadikim to have both worlds?
    Explains the Ksav Sofer and the Chanukas Hatorah (Rebbe R’ Heshel) comparing a tzadk and a rasha. For the tzadik, his whole life is a worry that maybe he does not have olam habo, so he constantly improves himself to gain olam habo and the same time since his life is a worry, he loses his olam hazeh. The rasha either he is sure he has olam habo or doesn’r believe in it, so he does nothing improve and thereby he loses it, but he gains olam hazeh as he has no worries. Yaakov Avinu wanted to live now worry free by being sure that he has olam habo, so he had to worry about Josef thereby worrying about his olam habo as he can only have olam habo if all his children stay alive.

    According to the Ohr Hachaim Hakadash in Paraahas Breishis any one is free to explain simething in the Torah as long it doesn’t affect halacha, so this certainly comes from gedolim and it doesn’t have to be muchruch.

    Hello all!

    #2013046

    hey noo what haened to this thread where are the dvar torahs?

    #2013049

    in the teiva noach spent the whole time focusing on avoida and ruchnius after the mabul hahsem tells noach to leave the teivah i.e. leave the ideal life, the life of just serving hashem and enter into the real world. the Be’sht taught that teivah can also mean world enter into the ‘word’ the words of torah and davening. we enter the teivah in the month of tishrei and envelop ourselves in words of davening and torah. now that tishrei is over we must go out of the teivah and enter the real world.

    For the Siyum of Tanis.

    The Jews are sitting in a circle and Hashem is the middle and they are pointing to Him recognizing that He is the only One who can redeem us.

    Why a circle?
    It says Hear o’ Israel Hashem our God is Hashem, One. It also says who is like your nation Yisrael one nation.

    We will show that they are both the same one.
    The kedusha through the center has a magnetic affect by pulling the circle towards the center making the circle smaller and smaller, uniting the points and eventually coinciding with the center. Also, the holy Zohar says that Yisrael and the Torah with Hashem kavayachel is one. Through the observance of the Torah we become united, making the circle smaller and coinciding with the center.

    Vayechi

    The difference between Yaakov and Yisrael the Rabbenu Bachaya explains that life of Yaakov refers to the physical and coming of death of Yisrael to the spiritual.

    ื”ืžื˜ื” is gematria 59 indicating when a sick person is visited 1/60 is taken away. The gemora in Nedorim 30, asks then 60 people will take away the whole illness. The gemora answers 1/60 of what is left over. Tosfas explains that it only applies to ben gilo, his mazel.

    Vaera is gematria Yitzchak indicating that the time of the geula, redemption will be calculated from him and the difference between Yitzchak and Yischak is 210, the time actually spent in Mitzraim. Moshe Rabbenu was told, remember your name gematria, ื-ืœ ืฉื“-ื™.

    Rashi says on vaera, ืืœ ื”ืื‘ื•ืช, to the ancestors, being concise. Maybe, the Baal Haturim explains that ื”ืื‘ื•ืช has the same letters ื•ืื”ื‘ืช, like Avraham Avinu who ื‘ื›ืœ ืœื‘ื‘ืš loved Hashem with his whoie heart. ื‘ื›ืœ ื ืืฉืš, Yitzchak Avinu, who sacrificed himself with his whole soul and ื•ื‘ื›ืœ ืžืื“ืš, what is the most precious to you, your wealth, where Yaakov said that everything Hashem gives him he will give maaser, tithe by showing how they each loved Hashem.

    ื“ืฆ’ืš ืขื“’ืฉ ื‘ืื—’ื‘ according to the Maasei Hashem the makos are broken down in each division by starting further away from the mitzrym and getting closer to them. Hashem gave them a chance to do teshuva. Kinim, shechin and chashech effected their body whereas dam, arov and borod effected their money. Dam if they paid to the Jews, they could buy water.
