WATCH VIDEO: Parshat Pinchas-A Zealous Tzaddik Sweetens Harsh Judgments; What a Lottery can Teach Us; Tzelafchad’s Daughters and Women’s Rights and more…The Radiant Torah with Rebbe Nachman of Breslov

The Radiant Torah Pinchas

At the end of the previous portion, Parshat Balak, Pinchas slays Zimri and Cosbi. In this Parsha we discuss Pinchas’ action in light of modern ideas about fanaticism vs. the deeper understanding that the Tzaddikim give us. Does Jewish “fundamentalism” exist?

Why do we eat cholent on Shabbat?

We also explore vengeance/revenge as well as judgment, and some of Rebbe Nachman’s profound insights about judgment from Likutey Moharan, Lesson 241 (not Tinyana) as well as the Baal Shem Tov’s teaching about judging others and ourselves, and giving ourselves an innocent verdict!

We also talk about the concept of the goral, the lottery, and why the Holy Land of Israel was portioned out to the 12 Shevatim via lottery rather than Moshe assigning the the tribes portions via an announcement.

Also, we discuss some of the inspiring traits of Tzelafchad’s daughters and how their love for Hashem and Eretz Yisrael has a message for us today.

We explore radiant insights on the psychospiritual messages of the parsha from Rebbe Nachman. We’ll also explore ideas from the Baal Shem Tov, Reb Noson, the Zohar Hakodesh, Arizal, the Rambam, the Ramban, the Ramchal, the Midrash and more.
