This week features:
G-d is in His heaven, but Korach & his crowd want what’s His!
The Deadly Plague of Cynicism Sown by Korach Threatens to Destroy All of Israel!
Meet Korach, the son of Yitzhar, the son of Kehat, the son of Levi: He’s a big-time negotiator, false healer and woman hater. He a master of the bluff and master of the proposition. He wraps himself in a cloak of decency and sure loves talking in the name of religion. Fortunately, Tzvi Richman is once again in the studio with Yitzchak Reuven, and his sober take on Korach’s self serving rhetoric helps to keep the rest of us from getting swept away by Korach’s honey-tongued power grab. After last week’s kid-glove reception of the twelve spies, Moshe employs a strong armed response to Korach’s attempted coup, along with truth, righteousness and an appeal to the people’s better nature. Yes, it’s like the earth just opened and swallowed him up. He reached too high, was thrown back to the ground! Just past the debacle of the spies and now with Korach in our cross-hairs, we welcome the new month of Tammuz – a G-d given opportunity to invest all our resources in rectifying the sin of the spies.
