PARSHAH IN A NUTSHELL
Korach incites a mutiny challenging Moses' leadership and the granting of the kehunah (priesthood) to Aaron. He is accompanied by Moses' inveterate foes, Dathan and Abiram. Joining them are 250 distinguished members of the community, who offer the sacrosanct ketoret (incense) to prove their worthiness for the priesthood. The earth opens up and swallows the mutineers, and a fire consumes the ketoret-offerers.

A subsequent plague is stopped by Aaron's offering of ketoret. Aaron's staff miraculously blossoms and brings forth almonds, to prove that his designation as high priest is divinely ordained.

G‑d commands that a terumah ("uplifting") from each crop of grain, wine and oil, as well as all firstborn sheep and cattle, and other specified gifts, be given to the kohanim (priests).



HAFTORAH IN A NUTSHELL
I Samuel 11:14-12:22.

The prophet Samuel (a descendant of Korach, the protagonist of this week's Torah portion) gathers the Jews to firmly install Saul as king of Israel. During the course of his address to the Jews he called out, "Here I am; bear witness against me before G‑d and before His anointed; whose ox did I take, or whose donkey did I take, or whom did I rob; or whom did I oppress, or from whose hand did I take a bribe..." This echoes Moses' statement in this week's Torah reading: "I have not taken a donkey from a single one of them, and I have not harmed a single one of them."

The nation gathers at Gilgal for a second coronation of King Saul—the first one having lacked a convincing consensus. They offer sacrifices and rejoice together. The prophet Samuel then delivers a talk: he asks the people to testify that he never committed crimes against the people, and they confirm. He discusses how G‑d saved and aided them every step of the way and chastises them for wanting a flesh and blood king. He assures them that G‑d will be with them if they follow in His ways, and of the consequences they will face if they do not follow G‑d's word.

To underscore the seriousness of his words, Samuel asks G‑d to send a thunderstorm, although it was not the rainy season. The Jewish people got the message and asked Samuel to intercede on their behalf and to have the thunderstorm cease. The haftorah ends with a reassurance: "For G‑d will not forsake His people for His great name's sake; for G‑d has sworn to make you a people for Himself."


SAGES ON THE PARSHAH

Korach . . . the son of Yitzhar, the son of Kehat, the son of Levi (16:1)

What moved him to start a quarrel? He was moved to it by the fact that Elitzafan, the son of his father's brother, was appointed prince over his family, as it says, "The prince of the father's house of the families of the Kehatites was Elitzafan the son of Uzziel" (Numbers 3:30). Korach argued: My father was one of four brothers, as it says, "The sons of Kehat: Amram, and Yitzhar, and Hebron, and Uzziel" (Exodus 4:18). As for Amram the firstborn, his son Aaron attained to greatness, and Moses to royalty. Who then should rightly take the next office? Is it not the next in line? Now I, being the son of Yitzhar, should by right be the leader of the Kehatites. Yet Moses appointed the son of Uzziel! Shall the [son of the] youngest of my father's brothers be superior to me? Behold, I shall dispute his decision and put to naught all that has been arranged by him . . .

(Midrash Rabbah; Rashi)

    OUR AIM:

    Kollel Menachem is here to make Torah learning accessible to all. Partner with us to ensure ongoing Torah learning in our community!

    Zooming and Booming: Instead of downscaling, the COVID-19 virus has been a time of growth and expansion for the Kollel. Our online presence and increased volume of shiurim have touched thousands of participants from across Australia. 

    In the last 2 months alone, we have hosted over 160 feature shiurim and more than 2600 individual attendees and 54,000 minutes of Torah study!

    With programs like our daily retirees' shiurim, we have provided a vital service of connecting and engaging the elderly and vulnerable members of our community during this time. Our Kollel Rabbis are devoted to teaching and sharing the wisdom of Torah through one-on-one study and enriching classes and learning programs.  The Kollel enables them to advance their learning and training to become the future Rabbis, community leaders and teachers in Jewish communities within Australia and throughout the world.  Your support will greatly help us in our work and enable us to expand our activities and offerings to the community.

    THE DATE: 

    The Kollel was established by the Lubavitcher Rebbe through the efforts of Rabbi Y. D. Groner. 

    Gimmel Tammuz is the Hilulah of the Lubavitcher Rebbe* and the 4th of Tammuz is the Yartzheit of Rabbi Groner. At this auspicious time, help us to actualise the Rebbe's vision; that the Kollel be a home and source of light to every member of the Jewish community.  

    *On the Hilulah of the Frierdike Rebbe, the Rebbe instructed that "In the morning, before prayer, charity should be given to causes associated with our Nasi, my revered father-in-law, of sainted memory. Donations should be made on behalf of oneself and on behalf of each member of one's family. The same should be done before Minchah"

    PARSHAH IN A NUTSHELL
    Moses sends twelve spies to the land of Canaan. Forty days later they return, carrying a huge cluster of grapes, a pomegranate and a fig, to report on a lush and bountiful land. But ten of the spies warn that the inhabitants of the land are giants and warriors "more powerful than we"; only Caleb and Joshua insist that the land can be conquered, as G‑d has commanded.

    The people weep that they'd rather return to Egypt. G‑d decrees that Israel's entry into the Land shall be delayed forty years, during which time that entire generation will die out in the desert. A group of remorseful Jews storm the mountain on the border of the Land, and are routed by the Amalekites and Canaanites.

    The laws of the menachot (meal, wine and oil offerings) are given, as well as the mitzvah to consecrate a portion of the dough (challah) to G‑d when making bread. A man violates the Shabbat by gathering sticks, and is put to death. G‑d instructs to place fringes (tzitzit) on the four corners of our garments, so that we should remember to fulfill the mitzvot (divine commandments).



    HAFTORAH IN A NUTSHELL
    Joshua 2:1-24.

    This week's haftorah tells the story of the spies that Joshua sent to scout the city of Jericho, prior to the Israelites' invasion of the Holy Land, a point in common with this week's Torah reading, which discusses the twelve spies that were sent by Moses years earlier to explore the Holy Land.

    Joshua sent two spies to Jericho, where they lodged at an inn located in the city's walls, operated by a woman named Rahab. Their presence was quickly discovered by the king who sent for Rahab and asked her to turn in her guests. Rahab responded that her guests had already left the city — when actually she had hidden them on her rooftop.

    "And she said to the men, I know that G‑d has given you the land, and that your terror has fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land have melted away because of you. For we have heard how G‑d dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt; and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites that were on the other side of the Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom you completely destroyed."

    At Rahab's request, the two spies assured her that she and her family would not be harmed during the conquer of Jericho—provided that she would tie a scarlet thread and hang it from her window. This would be a symbol that this home is a safe haven. Rahab helped the men escape via a rope she lowered from her window and told them how to hide from possible pursuers. The spies escaped safely and returned to report to Joshua.


    SAGES ON THE PARSHAH

    Send out for yourself men (Numbers 13:2)

    "Send out for yourself"—as your mind dictates. I am not instructing you; if you so desire, send. For the people of Israel had come to Moses, saying "Let us send men before us," as it is written (Deuteronomy 1:22), "You all approached me . . ."; and Moses consulted with G‑d. Said G‑d: I have said that it is a good land. . . . By your life, I shall now give you the option to err . . .

    (Rashi; Talmud)
