TRUST IN HASHEM

IN THIS WEEKS SEDRA IN THE TORAH WELLSPRINGS RABBI ELIMELECH BIDERMAN SHLITA TELLS A STORY WHICH IS APPLICABLE TO WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE THE POLITICAL WORLD THIS VERY WEEK.

THIS WEEKS PARSHA BEGINS WITH " VAYESHEV YAAKOV BE'ERETZ -  YAAKOV SAT IN THE LAND "

THE MIDRASH EXPLAINS, " IT CAN BE COMPARED TO A PERSON WHO IS WALKING AND A PACK OF DOGS ARE CHASING HIM, HE IS FRIGHTENED, SO HE SITS DOWN BETWEEN THEM.

SIMILARLY YAAKOV SAW ESAV WITH ALL HIS GENERALS, HE WAS AFRAID, SO HE SAT DOWN AMONG THEM.

SOMETIMES, IT IS SAFER WHEN ONE DOSE NOT RUN AWAY.

WHEN DOGS SEE SOMEONE RUNNING AWAY THEY BECOME MORE INTERESTED IN PURSUING HIM, YAAKOV STAYED PUT AND LIVED NEAR, THERE BY EXPRESSING THAT HE IS NOT AFRAID.

THIS AND TRUST IN HASHEM IS OFTEN THE SAFEST WAY TO DEAL WITH OUR ENEMIES.

HASHEM , CAN OVERCOME ALL FEARS
