The TORAH portion this past week listed BALAK as the portion's name. We
know he was dead set against ISRAEL existing and we know he was a real
looser. Should we then look down the line and find something good about him
- such as him being related to Ruth who is related to David, who we all
know is part of the MESSIAH??? Are there other portions like this where we
can look into the future and find something good about them. For example,
can we think about KORACH who had super son's???

Thanks for your
