The Radiant Torah Balak
Antisemitism simmers beneath the tale of King Balak who hired his old buddy Balaam to go out and curse the Jews. Balaam was the greatest non-Jewish prophet, yet he used his talents for witchcraft and immorality. Balaam wanted to do evil for most of his life, and that is what he chose. Eventually, Hashem forced Balaam to use his talents for good. What can we learn about free will from Balaam?
Balaam was humiliated by his talking donkey. What can we learn about humility from Balaam?
Balaam was forced to use his speech for good. What can we learn about the power of speech from Balaam?
Hashem Tzaddik. Hashem is righteous and shows us how to see the good in each other, just as He showed Balaam that He only saw the good in his Children, the Jewish people.
