The Torah Academy Dinner this past Sunday night was the most
financially successful dinner in the 36 year history of Torah Academy.
Thank you to all our volunteers and staff members who worked
tirelessly on each and every detail.
Adar in Torah Academy was packed with full of wonderful programs
both in the Williston and Hamilton buildings including mesibos,
classroom activities and creative Purim shtick.
בוט לזמ to all the boys who participated in Chemdas Yosef learning for
טבש שדוח. Another wonderful month. The 6th grade boys learned the
most םיקרפ, 163. Grade 3 learned 11, grade 4– 56, grade 5- 98, grade
7—95, and grade 8– 129. The total learned for טבש was 552. The
grand total learned this year is 1252. Keep up the wonderful learning!
בוט לזמ to 8G on רבדמב רפס םייס. The students enjoyed a beautiful
siyum with a video by Rabbi Deutsch from the Living Torah Museum
and lunch from Taam China. The video reviewed the travels of Bnei
Yisrael as they traveled through the midbar. Thank you Mrs.
Rosenberg for picking up the food. Thank you Mrs. Ochs for
arranging the program.
During the snow day on Thursday, approximately 40 boys from 2nd
through 8th grades learned with their rebbeim on conference calls or
in person. A strong message was broadcasted once again to our
students and to the community that a day should never go by without
learning Torah.
The possuk in ט״כ קוספ ה״ל קרפ להקיו תשרפ reads: לכל איבהל םתא םבל בדנ רשא השאו שיא לכ״
׳הל הבדנ לארשי ינב ואיבה השמ דיב תושעל ׳ה הוצ רשא הכאלמה
Simply translated, every man and woman that donated towards the construction of the
Mishkan, brought their donation to Hashem.
There is a seeming redundancy in this possuk.
Why does the Torah repeat the words ינב ואיבה
׳הל הבדנ לארשי? Considering that the possuk
begins by clearly indicating that it was the men
and women of Klal Yisrael who brought
donations, it would seem to be sufficient for the
possuk to write ׳הל הבדנ ואיבה - omitting the
wordsלארשי ינב.
The קחצי תליהק, n the name of one of the
magiddim of Vilna, explains this redundancy as
follows: The purpose of donating money
towards the Mishkan’s construction was to
create a place on earth that would ultimately be
a ןועמ, a dwelling place for the הניכש. However,
as inferred by ל״זח from the קוספ in Parshas
Terumah - םכותב יתנכשו שדקמ יל ושעו - the
concept of the ע״שבר residing in a Mishkan built
by Bnei Yisrael has an extra dimension. The
possuk doesn’t employ the word וכותב, implying
that Hashem would ‘restwithin the Mishkan,
rather, the possuk uses the word םכותב - within
them. This, explains Chazal, indicates that every
person has the responsibility to ensure that he
individually becomes a place for the Shechinah
to reside. Expounds the ךישלא: When לארשי ללכ
built the Mishkan for the Shechinah, דגנכ הדימ
הדימ Hashem rested His shechinah within them.
So too, when a Yid makes his home a dwelling
place for the הניכ, Hashem reciprocates by
nesting His הניכש within the Yid.
Chazal add that when לארשי ללכ contributed
towards the Mishkan, they were rewarded with
children. Similarly, when we bring the הניכש
into our lives, we are zoche that the הניכש will
continue to dwell within our progeny. This,
explains the קחצי תליהק, is the message of the
‘redundant’ לארשי ינב.When every man and
woman brought his or her contribution towards
the structure of the Mishkan, they were in
actuality bringing לארשי ינב their children – to
Hashem. They were setting the foundation of a
process that would ensure that their children
would become a dwelling place for the הניכש.
I truly feel that this is what was displayed at
Sunday night’s dinner. I clearly saw the
commitment and dedication of Torah Academy
parents and friends towards supporting and
preserving our ןכשמ. The dedication towards
creating a ןועמ, a dwelling place for the הניכש,
was readily apparent. In turn, we are confident,
that in that zechus, Hashem will shower us with
הכרב, and bless us by resting His presence
within our dear children.
