Parshas Ki Seitzei

Priorities

"You can't help her because you don't have a free moment!?! It's taken you two hours to get to level 27 of that PacMan game, and you're still playing!!"

"An Ammonite or Moabite man may never marry into Bnai Yisrael...because they (Ammon and Moab) did not bring you bread and water when you left Egypt and they hired Bilaam to curse you." (Divorim 23:4-5) The Dubno Magggid says that both reasons are connected. If they would try to rationalize their not giving us food because they didn't have money, it's not true--they had plenty of money to hire Bilaam.

To succeed in Judaism you have to have your priorities in order and be honest with yourself.

Have a great Shabbos !!

Rabbi Chaim Flom
