    ??????? ????????? ????????? ?????? ??????????? ??????? ????????? ??????? ???????? Why does it say both ????????? then ????? ???????? seems to be the same thing to me?This question is asked by the Ohr HaChayim HaKodosh, and he answers that it is to show the difficulty of the enslavement. They were both physically and spiritually enslaved and Hashem took the Jews out from both.

    Why would the Torah List animal before the Geirim?

    The first few items – “your sons, daughters, servants, maidservants, and animals” – are all under your direct control. It is your personal responsibility to make sure that they rest and don’t work on Shabbos.

    The convert, on the other hand, doesn’t belong to you. You should teach him what to do and what not to do, but you don’t have the power to compel his observance – that would be up to the beis din.

    So the convert is in a separate category, and naturally has to be listed separately.Although this does not answer the question, it is interesting to note that Yonasan Ben Uziel leaves out the animals in this Posuk!

    The Posuk starts off:

    ????????? ?????? ???-????? ???-?????????

    Then it goes on too say:

    ?????????? ???????? ????????? ???-????????? ?????????? ?????????

    The question is she we fear or not?

    The Shev Shematzah in his Introduction to his work addresses this question. There where two things they where afraid of at Har Sinai. One was the Fireworks all around them the thunder and lightning, loud noises and Flames of fire from that Moshe was saying Do Not Be Afraid. Then there was Hashem who came down to deliver the Torah Fear of Heaven is diffrent there one should definitely be Afraid

    ??? ???? ???? ??? ????? ???? ???? ??? ???? ?? ??? ???? ?? ?????

    Why the Difference and what is the difference between them?

    The where saved on two levels hence the use of two languages. One is the actual Golus living in a strange land, and the second is the working of the Jews as slaves.This like the Posuk says:

    ?? ?? ???? ???? ???? ?? ???, ?????? ???? ????

    That is first you will be strangers in a strange land and then and only then,you will suffer as a slave.

    But Moshe and Aharon who were from the Shevet Levi who only had one aspect of this Golus the Strangers in a strange land, and not the slavery, so Moshe and Aharon it says “??? ???? ???? ??? ?????” as you where saved from the Hands of Mitzrayim meaning the Slavery. But when Yisro is talking to them about the rest of Klal Yisroel he say ???? ?? ????? to add the extra aspect of ???? that is ?????? ???? ???? the slavery

    What did Rivkah see that caused her to fall off her camel?

    To start Avraham was Misakin Shachris, Yitzchak Mincha, and Yackov Marriv. That would mean at this Point only Shachris existed. Now we understand why Rivkah fell off the Camel she saw her Chosson going to Shachris at 4 in the Afternoon.

    What does it mean ???? ???? who else would he say a eulogy for?

    The answer is sometimes at funerals you hear the Eulogy and you know the person .Therefore you know it has been more than over-embellished. Here the torah was saying no he was talking about his wife and not an over-embellishment.

    Rashi on this Posuk says that He loosened their muzzles, for he had sealed their mouths, so they (the camels) should not graze in other people’s fields. The Ramban among many others asks a question on this Pshat. The Gemara says that the donkey of Reb Pinchas Ben Yair would not eat from non Tithed (not taken Masser from) crops, so why is it that for Avraham Camels we are concerned? To answer Let me begin with a story that happened in an office to illustrate a point. There was a person who worked in a frum office and brought his own milk and every day. The milk would mysteriously go missing at the end of every day. He tried many different preventative measures including writing “Lo Signov” on the milk all of this accomplished nothing, as everyday his milk was still missing. Then one day he had a bright Idea. He poured the milk in a container that was Chalav Stam and low and behold the milk was there at the end of the day untouched. Now we have the answer to the original question a Donkey will not eat un-tithed food yet when it comes to Dishonesty it might not be so stringent.

    It happened that whenever there was a Funeral in Yerushalayim and they took the Body to Har Hazeisim the Arabs would come out and greet the the Levayah with stones and curses and many times it happened that they were forced to leave the body and run to safety, this happened until it became challenging to get a Minyan to go to Levayos on Har Hazeisim.The Chevrah Kadisha decided they had to but a stop to this so they came up with a Plan. They called a large group of people together and told them we are going to end this problem we choose a senior Chevrah Kadisha member who had a White beard and will dress him In Tachrichim and wrap him in a Tallis and Have a Levayeh and you will see what will happen and the plan was put into effect.So out went this big Levayah and of course as they got to the Neighborhood of Har Hazeisim the where greeted by there regular welcoming comity with stones and alike accept this times things where different after throwing the first few rocks the “dead” arose and with him a large stick in one hand and Torch in the other and ran towards the Arabs and hit them to avenge his honor. The Arabs saw the dead rise and attack they went running in all directions fell over themselves and knocked each other over and the like and many rolled down Har Hazeisim with the he the monuments taking revenge also as people where tripping over them while running away.The people had a great laugh at the Arabs expense and never again was a funeral disturbed in the neighborhood of Har Hazeisim.They of course all realized in that weeks Parsha it said

    The Posuk says: ???????????? ????????? ????????? ???????????? ?????????? ?????? ?????????? ???? ??? ?????? ???? ?????????? Why on boats?

    Rav Kanievsky answers it says in Medrash Eicha(?”? ??’ ?) That the Jews had a treaty with Egypt’s King Pharaoh the Limp and an enemy attacked the Jews they called on Egypt an the Egyptians were coming to save them. Hashem caused the bodies of the Egyptians who had drowned at the splitting of the sea to surface one asked the other who are these people they answered theses are our ancestors who the Jews drowned and the turned around and left.This is why the Boats are mentioned as this was the Payback for our sins.

    in reply to: YWN Coffee Room Nightly D’Var Torah #1124916

    The Alshich answers that Lavan is the source of all our problems. If he would have given Rochel to Yaakov then Yosef would have been born first, and the brothers would never have fought with him. Thereby never selling him to slavery, this would have prevented our exile in Egypt from ever happening. That is why he is mentioned as he was the source of our going down to Egypt and not Eisav.

    Reb Yaakov Kaminetsky says it is not just Lavan it is all Armenians. As when Yaakov was going to marry Leah and not Rochel, they all knew and said nothing.

    The Brisker Rav has a different reason. The declaration of Bikkurim is meant to thank Hashem for a deliverance from hardship. Eisav is still around and still can cause us problems while Lavan is no longer around so in our declaration we are thanking Hashem for delivering us completely from Lavan but Eisav as an enemy to the Jews still stands.

    Why is there no Bracha made on the Blowing of Shofar in Elul ,like the Meggilah on Purim ,and lighting candles on Chanukah they are also Rabbinic and there is a Bracha?

    in reply to: YWN Coffee Room Nightly D’Var Torah #1124911

    Why do we blow Shofar in Elul?

    The Tur (O.C. 581) brings down two reasons the Pirkie Drav Eliezer says when Moshe went up on Rosh Chodesh Elul to get the second Luchos in order to prevent the Jews from doing something like the golden calf the Shofar was blown. This based on a Posuk in Tehillim God shall be exalted with the trumpet blast; the Lord, with the sound of the Shofar (47:6). Then he brings a Posuk in Amos (3:6) Will a Shofar be sounded in the city and the people not quake. This is because the first Posuk indicates a prevention of further Aveiros the second Posuk symbolizes that they will do Teshuvah. The Shlah in his Chiddushim on Gemarah Rosh Hashanah says it is because the Pirkie Drav Eliezer is only a reason to Blow on Rosh Chodesh itself the rest of the month is because of the Posuk in Amos. The Levush (581) adds his own twist saying it is the concept of Turn away from evil and do good on Rosh Chodesh it is turn away from evil then on it is do good.

    Parshas Re’eh: Vilna Gaon – Give Tzedaka and Watch Your Step

    “Paso’ach Tiftach Es Yadecha Lo”, open up your hand to the poor (Re’eh 15:8).

    The Gemara in Bava Basra (10a) tells the story how Rav Papa was walking up the stairs and his foot slipped and he was about to fall. Chiya Bar Rav MiDifti said to him, “Maybe a poor person came to you and you did not support him.” What is the connection between an accident on the steps and not giving tzedaka? The Vilna Gaon in Kol Eliyahu explains using the “Trop”. That is the notes used when reading in the Torah. If you look at the words Paso’ach Tiftach in the Chumash you will find something of great intrigue. The Trop on these words are “Darga” and “Tevir” which in Aramaic means “Steps” and “Break”. Now we understand why after seeing Rav Papa’s accident on the stairs, Rav Chiya Bar Rav MiDifti’s first thought was it had to be a tzedaka issue, as he had just experienced seeing someone on steps that were breaking.

    This explanation of “Darga” and “Tevir” can explain another interesting Gemara in Shabbos. Dovid asks Hashem “when will I die”? Hashem replies “I can not tell you” .He goes on and asks at least tell me on what day of the week? Hashem answers him” it will be on Shabbos”. Dovid with the information in hand has a plan to extend his life. Being that I must die on Shabbos I will learn all of that day and render myself untouchable to the angel of death. Being that the power of Torah will protect me. When the day of his death came the angel of death had his own counter plan. He made the trees outside rustle to such an extent that Dovid was forced to see what was happening. Dovid went up on a ladder the rung broke and as a result he died. Here again we have the theme of falling from the ladder .The question is what is the connection?

    The Gemara in Brachos gives Dovid’s daily schedule and says everyday:

    ???? ???? ???? ???? ????? ???? ????? ???? ???? ?? ??????? ???? ??? ????? ?????? ?????

    That is every day the wise men would come and tell Dovid the Jews need money he would say “let them do buisness with one another, and so they will earn their money” they further told him your system is not working so he said in that case capture the thieves and that will solve the problem.

    Reb Yonasan Eibshitz says this was a daily occurrence, he gave that answer on a daily basis and apparently it was not helping, Dovid was missing the point. The Jews needed Dovid to do or say something more practical .He brings down a Yalkut Shimoni based on a Posuk in Divrie Hayomim. There Dovid lists exorbitant amounts of money he had saved up to build the Beis Hamikdash. It further says when there was a three year famine in the land he refused to give up any of the money, as he was saving it for the Beis Hamikdash. The Yalkut brings down that this angered Hashem. Dovid had his priorities wrong because Hashem had said tzedakah is greater than the building of the Beis Hamikdash. Therefore he was punished by not being allowed to build the Beis Hamikdash. To add insult to injury the money was never used for the building of the Beis Hamikdash. As we know from Melachim that only after the completion of the Beis Hamikdash did Shlomo take out the money and put it away in the treasuries. That is because he was instructed by the Nevim of his day that this money was not to be used to build the Beis Hamikdash (Pesikta Rabbosi). Now we know why Dovid died with a fall from the ladder as he forgot the poor. Therefore he got the “Darga Tevir breaking step as his final death blow.

    It once happened in Yeruslayim that The Mahril Diskin paid for the Mezuzos to be checked in Yerushlayim.He paid them from the funds of the orpanage that untill today is in his name.He was asked how was he able to do this he answered the Posukim answer your question I take in the Orphans of Yerushlayim and it costs to support them their whole lives. If I pay now to check the Mezuzos and the people will live, it is a wortwhile investment for the orpahnage. Therfore, I am paying from the Orphange’s funds as an Invesment in the future.

    The Gemara in Avodah Zara(?, ?) says that in the Future the gentiles will have a complaint to Hashem we would have accepted the Torah too for the Jews you held Har Sinai over their heads if you would have done it to us we would of also accepted. Hashem hears there complaint and Gives them one LITE Mitzvah the Mitzvah of Sukkah. Hashem takes out the sun and makes it extremely hot they go out and Kick the Sukkah and leave. Now we know why it is all dependant on Lite mitzvah which people trample with their feet as this is the test the gentiles will fail when Mosicach Comes and they have their complaint hence ????? ???????????? the Mitzvah people are ?? ??????

    To which Rashi Comments:

    ‘??????’ ?? ????

    Reb Moshe Feinstein in Darash Moshe asks why is it that the torah is referd to as a watching?

    e answers that Torah is something that must be learnt by a Rebbi it must be watched in a sense if you use your own logic you are liable to make errors in judgment which would put the whole Torah in question. Therefore it must be watched given over from a Rebbi to talmid as if left to ones own intellect it may happen as that what happened to the generation of Enosh who came to the understanding that they should not worship g-d but his servants in the Heavens as they listen to their own intellect and not their elders Adam and Sheis.

    Parshas Vaeschanan starts off with Moshe’s Prayer to Hashem to which Rashi comments he asked for a free gift why was he asking for a free gift?

    The Imrie Shefer Answers that if you remember by Avraham after he conquered the 5 kings he was afraid he had used up all his credit for his righteousness so Hashem told him

    ?? ???? ???? ???? ???? ???

    Here too Moshe had the same concern,he had just conquered Sichon and Og so he asked for a free gift. Therefore Hashem answered him

    ?? ??,You have got plenty of credit it is nothing to worry about.

    The Zohar says we come into this world to accomplish, in order not to get MiNahman Dikusufah-Bread of Shame, in that we revived a gift without working for it so how does it add up? The Talile Oros of Rav Klar brings that the only time it is a shame to ask is if you are poor meaning in our example you lack Mitzvos but if you are rich than asking is no problem, as they know you have the money to pay, and they even might want to give you a gift to keep you coming back Hence the Problem of getting gifts MiNahman Dikusufah-Bread of Shame for tzaddikim and especially Moshe is a non issue

    in reply to: YWN Coffee Room Nightly D’Var Torah #1124897

    The Medrash says that Moshe tells Hashem it says in your Torah that if a slave says I love my master and children and I do not wish to go free he stays in his servitude and I Hashem said Moshe do both. Hashem answers him do not continue to speak what is the underlying conversation and explanation of this Medrash?

    The question is simple Moshe wants to go into Eretz Yisroel so he wants to stay in Hashem’s servitude but the answer Hashem replies can only be understood in the context of the Gemara in Kiddushin (??, ?) there the Gemara explains that in order to enslave himself further he must make this statement twice. Therefore Hashem tells him do not continue to speak for if you do I will be forced to allow you into Eretz Yisroel

    What is the Connection?

    Reb Bunim from Psheischa answers that if you look in the world you will see the people empty of Torah,that is those who do not study that means they are not ‘????? ?? are the ones who have added to the Torah they have extra Chumros to show the world I am Holy it is those that study, who live the regular life do not need to come on to additional Chumros, to prove to the world there holiness, Hence he says one Posuk is placed next to the other to illustrate this point.

    What is the signifigance of this language?

    The Mahram Shif answers that Moshe requested that he go into Ertz Yisroel even if Yehoshua would be his Rebbi. Here Hashem is responding cant do it. You want to accept Yehoshua as a rav do not speak any further of it I will not accept it. That is about Yehoshua as your Rav

    he famous question of the Gemara (???? ??, ?)is why did Moshe want to go into Eretz Yisroel did he want to eat of its fruit? The answer would seem to be simple he wanted to do the Mitzva of living in Israel?

    Reb Yackov in His Emes Liyackov says that the Tashbetz says that the Mitzvah of living in Israel is only for those who have a Chelek of Eretz Yisroel since Moshe was A Levi He had None hence he had no Mitzvah of living in Eretz Yisroel!!!!!!

    In Parshas Vaeschanan the Posuk says:

    ?????????? ???? ????????? ???????? ????? ????? ??? ??????? ?????? ??? ???????? ????? ??????????? ????? ????????? ????? ????????

    Translated as:

    And there you will worship gods, man’s handiwork, wood and stone, which neither see, hear, eat, nor smell

    The question that comes to mind is as follows we are plainly mentioning the five senses first of all what happened to the sense of touch, and more importantly what happened to SPEAKING it is that which would seem of utmost importance yet it is completely ignored?

    The reason the sense of touching is not said is answered by the Rabenu Bachyeh. He says that there is no need to mention more than one of the two senses that serve as tools of perception by the body.As according to the system of the Kuzari these two are the lesser senses as they require direct contact not like the others which can perceive from afar.

    The reason speaking is not addressed in our Posuk is answered by the GRA. He answers based on a Medrash Rabbah that says that Nebuchadnezzar took the Tztiz- the head-plate of the Kohen Gadol which had the name of Hashem inscribed upon it and placed it in the statue that he made of himself and thereby it started SPEAKING. What did Daniel do he asked Nebuchadnezzar for permission to kiss the statue on the mouth and permission was granted and while kissing it he removed the inscription of the Name of Hashem and it stopped speaking. This way he was able to prove there was nothing more to this statue than all the others. The Gra explains this Posuk is foretelling that time and advising Daniel in What to do. There will come a time in Golus that there will be a statue that will not see, hear, eat, nor smell but the Posuk does not say will not speak as it will!? and therefore the Torah continues in the next Posuk and tells Daniel what to do.

    ?????????????? ??????? ??? ????????? ????????? ?????????

    That is Daniel look for Hashems name in his mouth and you will see he has stolen from Hashem Because you Daniel the navi of Hashem did as the posuk ends off ???? ????????????? ?????? ???????? ??????? ?????????:You seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.
