+ 335 Rabbi Tarfon would say: The day is short, the work is much, the workers are lazy, the reward is great, and the Master is pressing. He would also say: It is not incumbent upon you to finish the task, but neither are you free to absolve yourself from it. If you have learned much Torah, you will be greatly rewarded, and your employer is trustworthy to pay you the reward of your labors. And know, that the reward of the righteous is in the World to Come. Pirkei Avot 2:15-16


+ 318 Ben Zoma would say: Who is wise? One who learns from every man. As is stated (Psalms 119:99): "From all my teachers I have grown wise, for Your testimonials are my meditation." Who is strong? One who overpowers his inclinations. As is stated (Proverbs 16:32), "Better one who is slow to anger than one with might, one who rules his spirit than the captor of a city." Who is rich? One who is satisfied with his lot. As is stated (Psalms 128:2): "If you eat of toil of your hands, fortunate are you, and good is to you"; "fortunate are you" in this world, "and good is to you" in the World to Come. Who is honorable? One who honors his fellows. As is stated (I Samuel 2:30): "For to those who honor me, I accord honor; those who scorn me shall be demeaned." Pirkei Avot 4:1


+ 307 Rabban Gamliel would say: Assume for yourself a master; stay away from doubt; and do not accustom yourself to tithe by estimation. Pirkei Avot 1:16


+ 395 Rabbi Shimon the son of Gamliel would say: By three things is the world sustained: law, truth and peace. As is stated (Zachariah 8:16), "Truth, and a judgement of peace, you should administer at your [city] gates.'' Pirkei Avot 1:18


+ 323 He would also say: It is not incumbent upon you to finish the task, but neither are you free to absolve yourself from it.

+ 337 Rabbi Chanina, deputy to the kohanim, would say: Pray for the integrity of the government; for were it not for the fear of its authority, a man would swallow his neighbor alive. Rabbi Chanina son of Tradyon would say: Two who sit and no words of Torah pass between them, this is a session of scorners, as is stated, "And in a session of scorners he did not sit" (Psalms 1:1). But two who sit and exchange words of Torah, the Divine Presence rests amongst them, as is stated, "Then the G-d-fearing conversed with one another, and G-d listened and heard; and it was inscribed before Him in a book of remembrance for those who fear G-d and give thought to His name" (Malachi 3:16). From this, I know only concerning two individuals; how do I know that even a single individual who sits and occupies himself with the Torah, G-d designates reward for him? From the verse, "He sits alone in meditative stillness; indeed, he receives [reward] for it" (Lamentations 3:28). Pirkei Avot 3:2


+ 339 Rabbi Chalafta the son of Dosa of the village of Chanania would say: Ten who sit together and occupy themselves with Torah, the Divine Presence rests amongst them, as is stated: "The Almighty stands in the congregation of G-d" (Psalms 82:1). And from where do we know that such is also the case with five? From the verse, "He established his band on earth" (Amos 9:6). And three? From the verse, "He renders judgement in the midst of the tribunal" (Psalms 82:1). And two? From the verse, "Then the G-d-fearing conversed with one another, and G-d listened and heard" (Malachi 3:16). And from where do we know that such is the case even with a single individual? From the verse, "Every place where I have My name mentioned, I shall come to you and bless you" (Exodus 20:21). Pirkei Avot 3:6


+ 354 He would also say: Everything is placed in pledge, and a net is spread over all the living. The store is open, the storekeeper extends credit, the account-book lies open, the hand writes, and all who wish to borrow may come and borrow. The collection-officers make their rounds every day and exact payment from man, with his knowledge and without his knowledge. Their case is well founded, the judgement is a judgement of truth, and ultimately, all is prepared for the feast. Pirkei Avot 3:16


+ 326 Ben Zoma would say: Who is wise? One who learns from every man. As is stated (Psalms 119:99): "From all my teachers I have grown wise, for Your testimonials are my meditation." Who is strong? One who overpowers his inclinations. As is stated (Proverbs 16:32), "Better one who is slow to anger than one with might, one who rules his spirit than the captor of a city." Who is rich? One who is satisfied with his lot. As is stated (Psalms 128:2): "If you eat of toil of your hands, fortunate are you, and good is to you"; "fortunate are you" in this world, "and good is to you" in the World to Come. Who is honorable? One who honors his fellows. As is stated (I Samuel 2:30): "For to those who honor me, I accord honor; those who scorn me shall be demeaned." Pirkei Avot 4:1


+ 333 Rabbi Yaakov would say: This world is comparable to the antechamber before the World to Come. Prepare yourself in the antechamber, so that you may enter the banquet hall. Pirkei Avot 4:16


+ 332 Any love that is dependent on something - when the thing ceases, the love also ceases. But a love that is not dependent on anything never ceases. What is [an example of] a love that is dependent on something? The love of Amnon for Tamar. And one that is not dependent on anything? The love of David and Jonathan. Pirkei Avot 5:16


+ 323 Said Rabbi Joshua the son of Levi: Every day, an echo resounds from Mount Horeb (Sinai) proclaiming and saying: "Woe is to the creatures who insult the Torah." For one who does not occupy himself in Torah is considered an outcast, as is stated (Proverbs 11:22), "A golden nose-ring in the snout of a swine, a beautiful woman bereft of reason." And it says (Exodus 32:16): "And the tablets are the work of God, and the writing is God's writing, engraved on the tablets"; read not "engraved" (charut) but "liberty" (chairut) - for there is no free individual, except for he who occupies himself with the study of Torah. And whoever occupies himself with the study of Torah is elevated, as is stated (Number 21:19), "And from the gift to Nahaliel, and from Nahaliel to The Heights." Pirkei Avot 6:2


+ 308 Great is Torah, for it gives life to its observers in this world, and in the World To Come. As is stated (Proverbs 4:22): "For they are life to he who finds them, and a healing to all his flesh." And it says (ibid. 3:8): "It shall be health to your navel, and marrow to your bones." And it says (3:18): "She is a tree of life for those who hold fast to her, and happy are those who support her." And it says (1:9): "For they shall be a garland of grace for your head, and necklaces about your neck." And it says(4:9): "She shall give to your head a garland of grace, a crown of glory she shall grant you." And it says (9:11): "With me, your days shall be increased, and years of life shall be added to you." And it says (3:16): "Long days in her right hand; in her left, wealth and honor." And it says (3:2): "For long days, years of life and peace, they shall add to you." Pirkei Avot 6:7


+ 330 Rabbi Shimon the son of Judah would say in the name of Rabbi Shimon the son of Yochai: Beauty, strength, wealth, honor, wisdom, sageness, old age and children are becoming to the righteous and becoming to the world. As is stated (Proverbs 16:31): "Old age is a crown of beauty, to be found in the ways of righteousness." And it says (ibid. 20:29): "The beauty of youths is their strength, and the glory of sages is their age." And it says (ibid., 17:6): "The crown of sages are their grandchildren, and the beauty of children their fathers." And it says (Isaiah 24:23): "And the moon shall be abashed and the sun shamed, for the Lord of hosts has reigned in Zion, and before his elders is glory." Rabbi Shimon the son of Menasia would say: these seven qualities enumerated by the sages for the righteous were all realized in Rabbi [Judah HaNassi] and his sons. Pirkei Avot 6:8


+ 375 God acquired five acquisitions in his world. These are: one acquisition is the Torah, one acquisition are the heavens and the earth, one acquisition is Abraham, one acquisition is the people of Israel, and one acquisition is the Holy Temple. The Torah, as it is written (Proverbs 8:22), "God acquired me as the beginning of His way, before His works of yore." The heavens and the earth, as it is written (Isaiah 66:1), "So says God: The heavens are My throne and the earth is My footstool; what house, then, can you build for Me, and where is My place of rest?"; and it says (Psalms 104:25), "How many are your works, O God, You have made them all with wisdom; the earth is filled with Your acquisitions." Abraham, as it is written (Genesis 14:19), "And he blessed him, and said: Blessed be Abram to God Most High, acquirer of heavens and earth." Israel, as it is written (Exodus 15:16), "Till Your nation, O God, shall pass, till this nation You have acquired shall pass"; and it says (Psalms 16:3), "To the holy who are upon earth, the noble ones, in whom is all My delight." The Holy Temple, as it is written (Exodus 15:17), "The base for Your dwelling that you, God, have achieved; the Sanctuary, O Lord, that Your hands have established"; and it says (Psalms 78:54), "And He brought them to His holy domain, this mount His right hand has acquired." Pirkei Avot 6:10


+ 310 I will insist the Hebrews have [contributed] more to civilize men than any other nation. If I was an atheist and believed in blind eternal fate, I should still believe that fate had ordained the Jews to be the most essential instrument for civilizing the nations ... They are the most glorious nation that ever inhabited this Earth. The Romans and their empire were but a bubble in comparison to the Jews. They have given religion to three-quarters of the globe and have influenced the affairs of mankind more and more happily than any other nation, ancient or modern. John Adams, Second President of the United States (From a letter to F. A. Van der Kemp [Feb. 16, 1808] Pennsylvania Historical Society)


+ 316 This is an exceedingly strange development, unexpected by all but the theologians. They have always accepted the word of the Bible: In the beginning God created heaven and earth… But for the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; and as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries. - Robert Jastrow. God and the Astronomers [New York: W.W. Norton and Co., 1978], 116. Professor Jastrow was the founder of NASA’s Goddard Institute, now director of the Mount Wilson Institute and its observatory.

+ 168 Now Sarai, Abram's wife, had not borne to him, and she had an Egyptian handmaid named Hagar. Bereshit 16:1


+ 216 And Sarai said to Abram, Behold now, the Lord has restrained me from bearing; please come to my handmaid; perhaps I will be built up from her. And Abram hearkened to Sarai's voice. Bereshit 16:2


+ 186 So Sarai, Abram's wife, took Hagar the Egyptian, her handmaid, at the end of ten years of Abram's dwelling in the land of Canaan, and she gave her to Abram her husband for a wife. Bereshit 16:3


+ 182 And he came to Hagar, and she conceived, and she saw that she was pregnant, and her mistress became unimportant in her eyes. Bereshit 16:4


+ 201 And Sarai said to Abram, May my injustice be upon you! I gave my handmaid into your bosom, and she saw that she had become pregnant, and I became unimportant in her eyes. May the Lord judge between me and you! Bereshit 16:5


+ 200 And Abram said to Sarai, Here is your handmaid in your hand; do to her that which is proper in your eyes. And Sarai afflicted her, and she fled from before her. Bereshit 16:6


+ 169 And an angel of the Lord found her by a water fountain in the desert, by the fountain on the road to Shur. Bereshit 16:7


+ 192 And he said, Hagar, Sarai's servant, where are you coming from, and where are you going to? And she said, From before Sarai my mistress, I am fleeing. Bereshit 16:8


+ 180 And the angel of the Lord said to her, Return to your mistress, and allow yourself to be afflicted under her hands. Bereshit 16:9

+ 154 And they journeyed from Beth el, and there was still some distance to come to Ephrath, and Rachel gave birth, and her labor was difficult. Bereshit 35:16


+ 154 Chief Korah, Chief Gaatam, Chief Amalek. These are the chieftains of Eliphaz in the land of Edom; these are the sons of Adah. Bereshit 36:16

+ 167 Pharaoh hastened to summon Moses and Aaron, and he said, I have sinned against the Lord your God and against you. Shemot 10:16


+ 143 And on the first day there shall be a holy convocation, and on the seventh day you shall have a holy convocation; no work may be performed on them, but what is eaten by any soul that alone may be performed for you. Shemot 12:16


+ 123 And it shall be for a sign upon your hand and for ornaments between your eyes, for with a mighty hand did the Lord take us out of Egypt. Shemot 13:16


+ 135 And you raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea and split it, and the children of Israel shall come in the midst of the sea on dry land. Shemot 14:16


+ 161 May dread and fright fall upon them; with the arm of Your greatness may they become as still as a stone, until Your people cross over, O Lord, until this nation that You have acquired crosses over. Shemot 15:16


+ 164 They journeyed from Elim, and the entire community of the children of Israel came to the desert of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departure from the land of Egypt. Shemot 16:1


+ 141 The entire community of the children of Israel complained against Moses and against Aaron in the desert. Shemot 16:2


+ 186 The children of Israel said to them, If only we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by pots of meat, when we ate bread to our fill! For you have brought us out into this desert, to starve this entire congregation to death. Shemot 16:3


+ 173 So the Lord said to Moses, Behold! I am going to rain down for you bread from heaven, and the people shall go out and gather what is needed for the day, so that I can test them, whether or not they will follow My teaching. Shemot 16:4


+ 129 And it shall be on the sixth day that when they prepare what they will bring, it will be double of what they gather every day. Shemot 16:5


+ 146 Thereupon, Moses and Aaron said to all the children of Israel, In the evening, you shall know that the Lord brought you out of the land of Egypt. Shemot 16:6


+ 156 And in the morning, you shall see the glory of the Lord when He hears your complaints against the Lord but of what significance are we, that you make the people complain against us? Shemot 16:7


+ 188 And Moses said, When the Lord gives you in the evening meat to eat and bread in the morning with which to become sated, when the Lord hears your complaints, which you are making the people complain against Him, but of what significance are we? Not against us are your complaints, but against the Lord. Shemot 16:8


+ 157 And Moses said to Aaron, Say to the entire community of the children of Israel, Draw near before the Lord, for He has heard your complaints. Shemot 16:9


+ 141 And it came to pass when Aaron spoke to the entire community of the children of Israel, that they turned toward the desert, and behold! the glory of the Lord appeared in the cloud. Shemot 16:10


+ 131 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Shemot 16:11


+ 168 I have heard the complaints of the children of Israel. Speak to them, saying, In the afternoon you shall eat meat, and in the morning you shall be sated with bread, and you shall know that I am the Lord, your God. Shemot 16:12


+ 121 It came to pass in the evening that the quails went up and covered the camp, and in the morning there was a layer of dew around the camp. Shemot 16:13


+ 136 The layer of dew went up, and behold, on the surface of the desert, a fine, bare substance as fine as frost on the ground. Shemot 16:14


+ 145 When the children of Israel saw it, they said to one another, It is manna, because they did not know what it was, and Moses said to them, It is the bread that the Lord has given you to eat. Shemot 16:15


+ 133 This is the thing that the Lord has commanded, Gather of it each one according to his eating capacity, an omer for each person, according to the number of persons, each one for those in his tent you shall take. Shemot 16:16


+ 141 And the children of Israel did so: they gathered, both the one who gathered much and the one who gathered little. Shemot 16:17


+ 136 And they measured it with an omer, and whoever gathered much did not have more, and whoever gathered little did not have less; each one according to his eating capacity, they gathered. Shemot 16:18


+ 117 And Moses said to them, Let no one leave over any of it until morning. Shemot 16:19


+ 135 But some men did not obey Moses and left over some of it until morning, and it bred worms and became putrid, and Moses became angry with them. Shemot 16:20


+ 108 They gathered it morning by morning, each one according to his eating capacity, and when the sun grew hot, it melted. Shemot 16:21


+ 155 It came to pass on the sixth day that they gathered a double portion of bread, two omers for each one, and all the princes of the community came and reported it to Moses. Shemot 16:22


+ 156 So he said to them, That is what the Lord spoke, Tomorrow is a rest day, a holy Sabbath to the Lord. Bake whatever you wish to bake, and cook whatever you wish to cook, and all the rest leave over to keep until morning. Shemot 16:23


+ 138 So they left it over until morning, as Moses had commanded, and it did not become putrid, and not a worm was in it. Shemot 16:24


+ 134 And Moses said, Eat it today, for today is a Sabbath to the Lord; today you will not find it in the field. Shemot 16:25


+ 170 Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day which is the Sabbath on it there will be none. Shemot 16:26


+ 126 It came about that on the seventh day, some of the people went out to gather manna, but they did not find any. Shemot 16:27


+ 143 The Lord said to Moses, How long will you refuse to observe My commandments and My teachings? Shemot 16:28


+ 155 See that the Lord has given you the Sabbath. Therefore, on the sixth day, He gives you bread for two days. Let each man remain in his place; let no man leave his place on the seventh day. Shemot 16:29


+ 123 So the people rested on the seventh day. Shemot 16:30


+ 150 The house of Israel named it manna, and it was like coriander seed, it was white, and it tasted like a wafer with honey. Shemot 16:31


+ 159 Moses said, This is the thing that the Lord commanded: Let one omerful of it be preserved for your generations, in order that they see the bread that I fed you in the desert when I took you out of the land of Egypt. Shemot 16:32


+ 144 And Moses said to Aaron, Take one jug and put there an omerful of manna, and deposit it before the Lord to be preserved for your generations. Shemot 16:33


+ 142 As the Lord had commanded Moses, Aaron deposited it before the testimony to be preserved. Shemot 16:34


+ 156 And the children of Israel ate the manna for forty years until they came to an inhabited land. They ate the manna until they came to the border of the land of Canaan. Shemot 16:35


+ 111 The omer is one tenth of an ephah. Shemot 16:36


+ 150 And he said, For there is a hand on the throne of the Eternal, that there shall be a war for the Lord against Amalek from generation to generation. Shemot 17:16


+ 114 If any of them has a case, he comes to me, and I judge between a man and his neighbor, and I make known the statutes of God and His teachings. Shemot 18:16


+ 144 It came to pass on the third day when it was morning, that there were thunder claps and lightning flashes, and a thick cloud was upon the mountain, and a very powerful blast of a shofar, and the entire nation that was in the camp shuddered. Shemot 19:16


+ 152 They said to Moses, You speak with us, and we will hear, but let God not speak with us lest we die. Shemot 20:16


+ 116 And whoever kidnaps a man, and he is found in his possession, shall surely be put to death. Shemot 21:16


+ 148 If her father refuses to give her to him in marriage, he shall weigh out money according to the dowry of the virgins. Shemot 22:16


+ 158 And the festival of the harvest, the first fruits of your labors, which you will sow in the field, and the festival of the ingathering at the departure of the year, when you gather in the products of your labors from the field. Shemot 23:16


+ 145 And the glory of the Lord rested on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it for six days, and He called to Moses on the seventh day from within the cloud. Shemot 24:16


+ 130 And you shall place into the ark the testimony, which I will give you. Shemot 25:16


+ 140 Ten cubits shall be the length of each plank, and a cubit and a half shall be the width of each plank. Shemot 26:16


+ 157 And at the gate of the courtyard shall be a screen of twenty cubits, made of blue, purple, and crimson wool, and twisted fine linen, the work of an embroiderer; their pillars four and their sockets four. Shemot 27:16


+ 117 It shall be square and doubled; its length one span and its width one span. Shemot 28:16


+ 130 You shall slaughter the ram, and you shall take its blood and sprinkle it on the altar all around. Shemot 29:16


+ 140 You shall take the silver of the atonements from the children of Israel and use it for the work of the Tent of Meeting; it shall be a remembrance for the children of Israel before the Lord, to atone for your souls. Shemot 30:16


+ 88 Thus shall the children of Israel observe the Sabbath, to make the Sabbath throughout their generations as an everlasting covenant. Shemot 31:16


+ 101 Now the tablets were God's work, and the inscription was God's inscription, engraved on the tablets. Shemot 32:16


+ 140 For how then will it be known that I have found favor in Your eyes, I and Your people? Is it not in that You will go with us? Then I and Your people will be distinguished from every other nation on the face of the earth. Shemot 33:16


+ 100 And you take of their daughters for your sons; then their daughters will go astray after their gods and lead your sons astray after their gods. Shemot 34:16


+ 97 The altar for the burnt offering, its copper grating, its poles and all its implements, the washstand and its base; Shemot 35:16


+ 105 And he joined the five curtains by themselves, and the other six curtains by themselves. Shemot 36:16


+ 116 And he made the implements that are on the table: its forms, its spoons, its half pipes, and its supports with which it will be covered of pure gold. Shemot 37:16


+ 96 All the hangings of the courtyard all around were of twisted fine linen. Shemot 38:16


+ 97 They made two golden settings and two golden rings, and they placed the two rings on the two ends of the choshen. Shemot 39:16


+ 108 Thus Moses did; according to all that the Lord had commanded him, so he did. Shemot 40:16


+ 146 And he shall remove its crop along with its entrails, and cast it next to the altar on the east side, to the place of the ashes. Vayikra 1:16


+ 144 Then, the kohen shall cause its reminder to go up in smoke, taken from its coarse meal and from its oil, with all its frankincense; it is a fire offering to the Lord. Vayikra 2:16


+ 227 And the kohen shall cause it to go up in smoke on the altar, consumed as a fire offering, with a pleasing fragrance. All sacrificial fat belongs to the Lord. Vayikra 3:16


+ 114 The anointed kohen shall bring some of the bull's blood into the Tent of Meeting, Vayikra 4:16


+ 140 And what he has trespassed against the holy thing he shall pay, and he shall add one fifth of its value to it, and he shall give it to the kohen. The kohen shall then make atonement for him through the ram of the guilt offering, and he shall be forgiven. Vayikra 5:16


+ 118 Every meal offering of a kohen shall be completely burnt; it shall not be eaten. Vayikra 6:16


+ 115 But if his sacrifice is a vow or a voluntary donation, on the day he offers up his sacrifice it may be eaten, and on the next day, whatever is left over from it, may be eaten. Vayikra 7:16


+ 124 And he took all the fat which was on the innards, and the diaphragm with the liver, and the two kidneys together with their fat. And Moses caused them to go up in smoke on the altar. Vayikra 8:16


+ 108 And he brought forward the burnt offering and prepared it according to the law. Vayikra 9:16


+ 184 And Moses thoroughly investigated concerning the sin offering he goat, and behold, it had been burnt! So he was angry with Eleazar and Ithamar, Aaron's surviving sons, saying, Vayikra 10:16


+ 112 The ostrich, the jay, and the sparrow hawk, and the goshawk after its species; Vayikra 11:16


+ 122 But, if the healthy, live flesh once again turns white, he shall come to the kohen. Vayikra 13:16


+ 123 The kohen shall then dip his right index finger into some of the oil that is on his left palm, and sprinkle some of the oil with his index finger seven times, before the Lord. Vayikra 14:16


+ 114 A man from whom there is a discharge of semen, shall immerse all his flesh in water, and he shall remain unclean until evening. Vayikra 15:16


+ 127 And the Lord spoke to Moses after the death of Aaron's two sons, when they drew near before the Lord, and they died. Vayikra 16:1


+ 143 And the Lord said to Moses: Speak to your brother Aaron, that he should not come at all times into the Holy within the dividing curtain, in front of the cover that is upon the ark, so that he should not die, for I appear over the ark cover in a cloud. Vayikra 16:2


+ 108 With this shall Aaron enter the Holy: with a young bull for a sin offering and a ram for a burnt offering. Vayikra 16:3


+ 123 He shall wear a holy linen shirt and linen pants shall be upon his flesh, and he shall gird himself with a linen sash and wear a linen cap these are holy garments, and therefore, he shall immerse himself in water and don them. Vayikra 16:4


+ 111 And from the community of the children of Israel, he shall take two he goats as a sin offering, and one ram as a burnt offering. Vayikra 16:5


+ 108 And Aaron shall bring his sin offering bull, and initiate atonement for himself and for his household. Vayikra 16:6


+ 114 And he shall take the two he goats, and place them before the Lord at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. Vayikra 16:7


+ 112 And Aaron shall place lots upon the two he goats: one lot "For the Lord," and the other lot, "For Azazel." Vayikra 16:8


+ 125 And Aaron shall bring the he goat upon which the lot, "For the Lord," came up, and designate it as a sin offering. Vayikra 16:9


+ 125 And the he goat upon which the lot "For Azazel" came up, shall be placed while still alive, before the Lord, to initiate atonement upon it, and to send it away to Azazel, into the desert. Vayikra 16:10


+ 127 And Aaron shall bring his sin offering bull, and shall initiate atonement for himself and for his household, and he shall then slaughter his sin offering bull. Vayikra 16:11


+ 127 And he shall take a pan full of burning coals from upon the altar, from before the Lord, and both hands' full of fine incense, and bring it within the dividing curtain. Vayikra 16:12


+ 121 And he shall place the incense upon the fire, before the Lord, so that the cloud of the incense shall envelope the ark cover that is over the tablets of Testimony, so that he shall not die. Vayikra 16:13


+ 138 And he shall take some of the bull's blood and sprinkle it with his index finger on top of the ark cover on the eastern side; and before the ark cover, he shall sprinkle seven times from the blood, with his index finger. Vayikra 16:14


+ 122 He shall then slaughter the he goat of the people's sin offering and bring its blood within the dividing curtain, and he shall do with its blood as he had done with the bull's blood, and he shall sprinkle it upon the ark cover and before the ark cover. Vayikra 16:15


+ 137 And he shall effect atonement upon the Holy from the defilements of the children of Israel and from their rebellions and all their unintentional sins. He shall do likewise to the Tent of Meeting, which dwells with them amidst their defilements. Vayikra 16:16


+ 133 And no man shall be in the Tent of Meeting when he comes to effect atonement in the Holy, until he comes out. And he shall effect atonement for himself, for his household, and for all the congregation of Israel. Vayikra 16:17


+ 101 And he shall then go out to the altar that is before the Lord and effect atonement upon it: He shall take some of the bull's blood and some of the he goat's blood, and place it on the horns of the altar, around. Vayikra 16:18


+ 127 He shall then sprinkle some of the blood upon it with his index finger seven times, and he shall cleanse it and sanctify it of the defilements of the children of Israel. Vayikra 16:19


+ 109 And he shall finish effecting atonement for the Holy, the Tent of Meeting, and the altar, and then he shall bring the live he goat. Vayikra 16:20


+ 153 And Aaron shall lean both of his hands forcefully upon the live he goat's head and confess upon it all the willful transgressions of the children of Israel, all their rebellions, and all their unintentional sins, and he shall place them on the he goat's head, and send it off to the desert with a timely man. Vayikra 16:21


+ 101 The he goat shall thus carry upon itself all their sins to a precipitous land, and he shall send off the he goat into the desert. Vayikra 16:22


+ 125 And Aaron shall enter the Tent of Meeting and remove the linen garments that he had worn when he came into the Holy, and there, he shall store them away. Vayikra 16:23


+ 112 And he shall immerse his flesh in a holy place and don his garments. He shall then go out and sacrifice his burnt offering and the people's burnt offering, and he shall effect atonement for himself and for the people. Vayikra 16:24

+ 90 Korah the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi took himself to one side along with Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On the son of Peleth, descendants of Reuben. Bamidbar 16:1


+ 108 They confronted Moses together with two hundred and fifty men from the children of Israel, chieftains of the congregation, representatives of the assembly, men of repute. Bamidbar 16:2


+ 95 They assembled against Moses and Aaron, and said to them, "You take too much upon yourselves, for the entire congregation are all holy, and the Lord is in their midst. So why do you raise yourselves above the Lord's assembly?" Bamidbar 16:3


+ 82 Moses heard and fell on his face. Bamidbar 16:4


+ 80 He spoke to Korah and to all his company, saying, "In the morning, the Lord will make known who is His, and who is holy, and He will draw them near to Him, and the one He chooses, He will draw near to Him. Bamidbar 16:5


+ 80 Do this, Korah and his company: Take for yourselves censers. Bamidbar 16:6


+ 96 Place fire into them and put incense upon them before the Lord tomorrow, and the man whom the Lord chooses he is the holy one; you have taken too much upon yourselves, sons of Levi." Bamidbar 16:7


+ 78 Moses said to Korah, "Please listen, sons of Levi. Bamidbar 16:8


+ 88 Is it not enough that the God of Israel has distinguished you from the congregation of Israel to draw you near to Him, to perform the service in the Mishkan of the Lord and to stand before the congregation to minister to them? Bamidbar 16:9


+ 91 He drew you near, and all your brothers, the sons of Levi with you, and now you seek the kehunah as well? Bamidbar 16:10


+ 106 Therefore, you and your entire company who are assembled are against the Lord, for what is Aaron that you should complain against him?" Bamidbar 16:11


+ 96 Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, but they said, "We will not go up. Bamidbar 16:12


+ 95 Is it not enough that you have brought us out of a land flowing with milk and honey to kill us in the desert, that you should also exercise authority over us? Bamidbar 16:13


+ 98 You have not even brought us to a land flowing with milk and honey, nor have you given us an inheritance of fields and vineyards. Even if you gouge out the eyes of those men, we will not go up." Bamidbar 16:14


+ 103 Moses was exceedingly distressed, and he said to the Lord, "Do not accept their offering. I have not taken a donkey from a single one of them, and I have not harmed a single one of them." Bamidbar 16:15


+ 77 Moses said to Korah, You and your entire congregation should be before the Lord you, they, and Aaron tomorrow. Bamidbar 16:16


+ 78 Let each man take his censer and place incense upon it, and let each man present his censer before the Lord; there will thus be two hundred and fifty censers, and let you and Aaron each take his censer. Bamidbar 16:17


+ 94 So each man took his censer, and they put fire upon it and placed incense upon it, and they stood at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting with Moses and Aaron. Bamidbar 16:18


+ 75 Korah assembled all the congregation against them at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting, and the glory of the Lord appeared before the entire congregation. Bamidbar 16:19


+ 77 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron saying, Bamidbar 16:21


+ 89 Dissociate yourselves from this congregation, and I will consume them in an instant. Bamidbar 16:22


+ 98 They fell on their faces and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, if one man sins, shall You be angry with the whole congregation? Bamidbar 16:22


+ 90 The Lord spoke to Moses saying, Bamidbar 16:23


+ 93 Speak to the congregation saying, Withdraw from the dwelling of Korah, Dathan and Abiram. Bamidbar 16:24


+ 90 Moses arose and went to Dathan and Abiram, and the elders of Israel followed him. Bamidbar 16:25


+ 95 He spoke to the congregation saying, Please get away from the tents of these wicked men, and do not touch anything of theirs, lest you perish because of all their sins. Bamidbar 16:26


+ 100 So they withdrew from around the dwelling of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, and Dathan and Abiram went out standing upright at the entrance of their tents together with their wives, their children, and their infants. Bamidbar 16:27


+ 88 Moses said, With this you shall know that the Lord sent me to do all these deeds, for I did not devise them myself. Bamidbar 16:28


+ 78 If these men die as all men die and the fate of all men will be visited upon them, then the Lord has not sent me. Bamidbar 16:29


+ 102 But if the Lord creates a creation, and the earth opens its mouth and swallows them and all that is theirs, and they descend alive into the grave, you will know that these men have provoked the Lord. Bamidbar 16:30


+ 79 As soon as he finished speaking all these words, the earth beneath them split open. Bamidbar 16:31


+ 97 The earth beneath them opened its mouth and swallowed them and their houses, and all the men who were with Korah and all the property. Bamidbar 16:32


+ 78 They, and all they possessed, descended alive into the grave; the earth covered them up, and they were lost to the assembly. Bamidbar 16:33


+ 82 All Israel who were around them fled from their cries, for they said, "Lest the earth swallow us up too!" Bamidbar 16:34


+ 75 A fire came forth from the Lord and consumed the two hundred and fifty men who had offered up the incense. Bamidbar 16:35


+ 75 The Lord said to Moses saying: Bamidbar 17:16


+ 98 Its redemption shall be performed from the age of a month, according to the valuation, five shekels of silver, according to the holy shekel, which is twenty gerahs. Bamidbar 18:16


+ 101 Anyone who touches one slain by the sword, or a corpse, or a human bone or a grave, in an open field, he shall be unclean for seven days. Bamidbar 19:16


+ 75 We cried out to the Lord and He heard our voice. He sent an angel, and he took us out of Egypt, and now we are in Kadesh, a city on the edge of your border. Bamidbar 20:16


+ 73 From there to the well; that is the well of which the Lord said to Moses, Gather the people, and I will give them water. Bamidbar 21:16


+ 82 They came to Balaam and said to him, So said Balak the son of Zippor, Please do not hesitate to come to me. Bamidbar 22:16


+ 102 The Lord chanced upon Balaam and placed something into his mouth. He said, Return to Balak and so you shall speak. Bamidbar 23:16


+ 96 The word of the one who hears God's sayings and perceives the thoughts of the Most High; who sees the vision of the Almighty, fallen yet with open eyes. Bamidbar 24:16


+ 87 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 25:16


+ 67 The family of the Oznites from Ozni, the family of the Erites from Eri, Bamidbar 26:16


+ 72 "Let the Lord, the God of spirits of all flesh, appoint a man over the congregation, Bamidbar 27:16


+ 75 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, you shall offer up a Passover offering to the Lord. Bamidbar 28:16


+ 69 And one young male goat for a sin offering, besides the continual burnt offering, its meal offering, and its libation. Bamidbar 29:16


+ 62 If he revokes them after having heard them, he shall bear her iniquity. Bamidbar 30:16


+ 102 They were the same ones who were involved with the children of Israel on Balaam's advice to betray the Lord over the incident of Peor, resulting in a plague among the congregation of the Lord. Bamidbar 31:16


+ 97 They approached him and said, We will build sheepfolds for our livestock here and cities for our children. Bamidbar 32:16


+ 73 They journeyed from the Sinai desert and camped in Kivroth hataavah. Bamidbar 33:16


+ 71 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 34:16


+ 71 If he struck him with an iron instrument and he dies, he is a murderer, and the murderer shall be put to death. Bamidbar 35:16


+ 104 And I commanded your judges at that time, saying, Hear disputes between your brothers and judge justly between a man and his brother, and between his litigant. Devarim 1:16


+ 88 So it was, when all the men of war finished dying from among the people, Devarim 2:16

+ 86 You shall not try the Lord, your God, as you tried Him in Massah. Devarim 6:16


+ 92 And you shall consume all the peoples which the Lord your God gives you; you shall not spare them, nor shall you worship their gods, for that will be a snare for you. Devarim 7:16


+ 89 Who fed you with manna in the desert, which your forefathers did not know, in order to afflict you and in order to test you, to benefit you in your end, Devarim 8:16


+ 122 And I saw, and behold, you had sinned against the Lord, your God; you had made yourselves a molten calf; you had deviated quickly from the way which the Lord had commanded you. Devarim 9:16


+ 101 You shall circumcise the foreskin of your heart, therefore, and be no more stiffnecked. Devarim 10:16

+ 169 Dark Alleys Shine

Once we learn much hidden Torah, whatever we understand and learn from the revealed Torah shines with a precious light.

Then the hidden Torah, with its special quality, appears in all those topics that the revealed Torah discusses.

This is found in the Jerusalem Talmud: since its authors were pious, their Torah was “blessed.” In contrast, the words of the Babylonian Talmud are merely “kept.” It seems that the Jerusalem Talmud deals with more elevated, pious people. Because of them, the Torah grows and becomes glorious. This is due to the appearance of attainments of holiness, starting from a small beginning and developing into great and powerful rivers. These people attain the light of Torah by prayer and deep study, as well as before and after learning. Such people constitute the body of Torah and the soul of Torah.

In this regard, there is a difference between the air of the land of Israel (where the holy spirit can flow upon the content of Jewish law) and elsewhere (where the holy spirit can spread openly only in aggadah, whereas Jewish law is judged by human intellect).

“‘In the dark places, You have placed me’ (Eichah 3:6)—this is the Babylonian Talmud” (Sanhedrin 24a). But from the midst of darkness, great light will sprout: “The nation that walks in darkness has seen a great light, those who dwell in a land of the shadow of death—light has shone upon them” (Is. 9:1). [“These are masters of the Talmud, who have seen great light, for the Holy One, blessed be He, illumines their eyes with what is forbidden and allowed, what is ritually unclean and clean” (Midrash Tanchuma Noach).]

In this way, these people bring down to the lowly avenues of life the illumination of God’s supernal Presence. In this way, they cause multitudinous dark alleys to shine. This aids numbers of those who are distant come, approach and connect to the supernal light of the glow of Torah in its might, the Torah of the land of Israel: “‘The gold of that land is good’ (Bereishis 2:12)—there is no Torah like the Torah of the land of Israel, and no wisdom like the wisdom of the land of Israel” (Bereishis Rabbah 16).

Orot Hatorah 13:1


+ 57 Our sages said, “I have created the evil inclination, I have created the Torah as a spice” (Babba Batra, 16). The matter of the spice is as our sages said, “If only they left Me and kept My Torah, the Light would reform them” (Yerushalmi, Hagiga, 6b). Thus, that there is a power in the Torah to reform a person, referring to the evil within man, meaning to make the will to receive be in order to bestow.
