HJC Schedule – Parshas Korach

Good morning everyone,
-Mazel Tov to new members Simon and Irit Kol on the Bat-Mitzvah of their daughter being celebrated this weekend at the shul. 
 
-Mincha/Maariv during the week is at 8:45pm.  This time gets in the way of many scheduled Chavrusas at the Kollel and has resulted in a tighter minyan these past couple of weeks.  Please consider davening at Heights in the evenings if you usually daven elsewhere.
Have a gut Shabbos
 
Rabbi Davidovich

Korach and his friends

One of the first medrashim in Medrash Raba on Parshas Korach states that the nesiim were part of Korach’s cabal against Moshe.  That puts the rebellion in a totally different light. Although the medrash only mentions the nasi from Mateh Reuven by name, Elitzur Ben Shedei’ur, the medrash implies that it was he and his chaveirim, i.e. fellow nessim who were involved.  This would mean that Nachshon ben Aminadav was one of the rebels as well!
 
The different light is that the rebellion is no longer about the smooth-talking Korach who convinces the masses with his rousing populism.  Sanhedrin leaders, Tribal leaders!  This was big.  Very different from the Asafsuf who started making trouble when the Jews left Har Sinai.
 
This forces me to reevaluate Korach’s merits.  And reevaluating Korach forces me to reevaluate Moshe.  Because after all, Moshe was right and Korach was wrong.  So if we raise Korach to a higher level, Moshe’s retort has to be comparatively deeper.

Strawberries etc.

Here is what the Star-K is saying about checking strawberries:
Taken from http://www.star-k.org/cons-appr-vegetables.htm
 
1. Fill basin with water and some dishwashing liquid* or special strawberry wash (such as Tsunami 100).


2. Soak strawberries in soapy water.
 
3. Wash strawberries under a stream of water.
 
4. Strawberries may now be used.
