Hear Conditioning Rabbi Mordechai Kamenetzky Whoever misses the Divine hand that touched the Purim story is not looking. And if he claims that he heard the Megilah, he probably was not listening. Imagine, the Prime Minister draws lots and decides to annihilate the entire Jewish nation. Within 24 hours he has approval from the ruler of the not-so- Second Leining of rufz ,arp
Within days, the plot is foiled, the Prime Minister is hanged and his prime target is promoted to replace him! Pretty political. Pretty miraculous. And definitely divine. Yet Hashem’s name is not mentioned once in the Megilah. Why? Of course, the Megilah is replete with allusions. There are acronyms that spell the name of Hashem, and our sages explain that every time the word “King” is mentioned in the Megilah, it has a divine reference. But, still, why does the last book of the Prophets, a Divinely inspired Megilah, have only veiled references It was a sweltering August day when the Greenberg brothers entered the posh Dearborn, Michigan offices of the notoriously anti-Semitic car-maker, Henry Ford.“Mr. Ford,” announced Hyman Greenberg, the eldest of the three, “we have a remarkable invention that will revolutionize the automobile industry. “ Ford looked skeptical, but their threats to offer it to obvious interference is undocumented; but we know and feel it – and we search for it, and we find it! So, too, in every instance we must seek His name, find it, and recognize it. It may not be emblazoned on the bumper; it may be hidden on the console – but it is there. For Hashem is always speaking.

Our Whole Selves Rabbi Yaakov Menken ( "Letters were sent by courier to all countries under the King's power, to destroy, to kill, and to annihilate all the Jews, from children to the elderly, babies and women, on one day, the thirteenth of the twelfth month, which is the month of Adar, and plunder their property." [Meg. Esther 3:13] We see an apparent redundancy in the use of several different words to describe the murder and plunder which Haman planned. The Vilna Gaon, however, teaches us that Haman planned to strike at every element of The Gaon, Rabbi Eliyahu Kramer, explains that there are four elements to a person in Jewish thought: the basic life-force (Nefesh), spirit (Ruach), soul (Neshamah), and the body. Rabbi Chanan Nobel, in his excellent commentary on the Vilna Gaon on the Megillah, directs us to the Gaon's own commentary to the Book of Proverbs. There, the Vilna Gaon says that these correspond to the four basic levels of Creation in our living world: those things which do not grow or live, such as rocks and earth; those which grow, like plants; those which move about, such as the animal kingdom; and that which speaks - humankind. Jewish Clothing Rabbi Berel Wein ( Yet the Gaon goes further and says that the Nefesh, the basic life-force, is intertwined with the body itself. One does not attack a body, but the life The emphasis in this week’s parsha on the clothing of the kohanim – inside it. But there is indeed a fourth element of a person: his or her the priests of Israel of the family of Aharon – raises the issue of “Jewish possessions. The Maharal in Nesivos Olam writes that a person's money is clothing” as practiced throughout the ages. The vestments of the considered part of him, as we see from our Sages (Talmud Bavli, Tractate kohanim were divinely ordained and their exact description Bava Kama 119a): "a person who steals even a dime from his neighbor, it is undoubtedly contains within it realms of spirituality and service to God and man. These garments were meant to reflect “honor and glory” on those who wore them- and to the entire household of Israel. In fact, in Thus there is no redundancy - Haman planned "l'akor hakol," to uproot Second Temple times, when there was no longer any remaining everything. The word "l'hashmid," to destroy, refers specifically to a spiritual anointment oil that could be used to inaugurate the kohanim into the destruction - taking a person away from Mitzvos, from deeds which service in the Temple, the Talmud teaches us that donning the elevate his or her soul. "To kill" corresponds to the living spirit within a vestments of the priesthood was deemed to be sufficient to officially person. "To annihilate" corresponds to the more basic life force and the body itself, meaning to remove all trace, to destroy even any remnant or name of Israel. And the plunder of property, of course, corresponds to Thus, to a great extent, clothing made the person. As such, I feel that it the property itself. Haman wanted to destroy every last trace of the Jews. is quite understandable that Jews always placed a great stress upon what clothing they wore and how they dressed. Natural y, the type The Vilna Gaon concludes that our celebration of Purim contrasts with and style of “Jewish clothing” varied in different ages and locations. Haman's goal in every aspect. We add a purely spiritual Mitzvah to the day, The Jews of Persia and Iraq did not wear Polish fur trimmed hats nor with the reading of the Megillah, to uplift our souls. For the spirit, the "ruach" did Polish Jews wear head scarves or turbans. The Jews of which lives in the heart of a person, this is a day of joy. For the body, it is a Amsterdam in the seventeenth and eighteenth century wore triangular day of feasting. And for the sake of our property, we are commanded to cockaded hats and the Lithuanian rabbis of the nineteenth century give special gifts to the poor, in order that even they should have property wore gentlemanly tall silk top hats. But the common denominator to all of this is that, from the time of Moshe onwards, Jews attempted to And indeed, on Purim, we should invest our whole selves in the dress distinctively, albeit always within the confines and influences of “Jewish clothing” was always meant to be modest, neat and clean. It was to be an “honor and glory” to the wearer and the Jewish society. The Talmud speaks very strongly against Torah scholars who are We are delighted to announce a new feature starting this week somehow slovenly in the appearance of their clothing. Poverty was – Brainteasers by Rabbi Stanton. Each week a new never al owed to be an excuse for stains or dirt on one’s garments. In brainteaser will be published, typically relating to the week’s the Temple, the used clothing of the kohanim was still considered to sedra. In the subsequent week’s issue the answer will be have an element of holiness to them even if they could no longer be worn. Wicks for the candelabra were fashioned from them. Clothing was never looked at as being a purely inanimate object. After This week we have two brainteasers relating to Purim – get your all, the first clothing for humans was fashioned for Adam and Chava by God Himself, so to speak. Ill treatment of clothing was deemed to be a punishable offense. King David, in his old age was not warmed by his clothing any longer. The Rabbis attributed this to the fact that he mistreated the clothing of King Saul earlier in his life. I think all of the above helps explain the importance that clothing, the type of individual “uniforms” that Jews in the world and here in Israel, play in our communal and personal life. Each of us and the groups that we belong to attempt to wear clothing that will be an “honor and glory” to us individually and to the group collectively. We should therefore not only treat clothing with respect but we should respect as well the wearers of those different types of clothing that conform to our traditions of modesty and Jewish pride.


A fever is alarming for parents. The heat radiating off of your child’s forehead is hot enough to boil water, and he is listless, not himself. Take a deep breath. How are you taking his temperature? Between the age 0-3months, we prefer that you take his temperature rectally. What was that? Yes, you can do this! Take a digital thermometer, add some petroleum jelly to the tip of it and insert it
