Rav's Message

Dear Friends,

This coming Thursday, on the 15th of Tammuz, we mark the yohrzeit of Rabbi Chaim Ibn Attar, the author of the famed Ohr HaChaim commentary on the Torah.

In his comments to the beginning of Parshas Chukas, the Ohr HaChaim asks why the mitzvah of the Parah Aduma -- the quintessential "chok," or law whose reason is hidden, of the "Red Heifer" -- is introduced with the words "This is the law of the Torah"? Would it not have made more sense to simply say "This is the law of the Parah Aduma"?

The Ohr HaChaim answers that an adherence to laws we do not understand, like that of the Parah Aduma, is really a sign of our allegiance to the Torah as a whole. It is relatively easy to commit to rules and ideas we understand. But when we are committed even to laws whose meaning is beyond us, it shows our true devotion to G-d and His Torah. Thus, the law of Parah Aduma is truly "the law of the Torah" -- the law which shows our commitment to Torah as a whole.

With wishes for a wonderful Shabbos.

Rabbi Zvi Romm
