AN OLD HEBREW EXPRESSION STATES: THOSE

Voices From the Ezras Nashim
While July is usually a busy time for me this particular July is pushing matters to the limit. My out of the house work schedule has more than doubled and the moot court teams I coach for the local law school are in full swing with competition the second week in August. It often feels as though the week that was seems to be running very quickly into the week that is.
This coming week Daven with Dov will welcome our four bochers from the Brooklyn branch of the Chofetz Chaim Yeshiva. The four young men will be with us for about a month while they learn with members of the community. This is the second year that we will be hosting these young men. Three, Ahron Michel, Yehuda and Gavriel are returnees and Chaim is new to our home and our program.
In many ways I feel as though getting from week to week and completing all the tasks inherent in that journey is like our 42 journeys in the dessert as recounted in Parshas Masei which we read this week. Only through these travels and the challenges they bring will we reach the spiritual level necessary to enter the land of Israel.
May we utilize the myriad opportunities that we encounter throughout our lives to connect us to our Creator and to bring us speedily from golus into the land He gave us.
Chazak chazak v'nischazseik!
