Shalom and Bracha!

  This Shabbat we bless the month of Iyar and we read the portion of Kedoshim. The portion begins "be holy, because I, Hashem your G-d, am holy. A deep reflection upon this for gives us the awareness that each of us has a spark of G-d within us and through the power of that spark and the awareness of that spark we can elevate ourselves to any height of holiness.

  In the midst of the portion we find a very special Mitzvah, loving our fellow Jew as ourselves. Rabbi Akiva said that this Mitzvah is the great principal of the Torah, and Hillel said that the entire Torah is an explanation of this Mitzvah. Seemingly, this Mitzvah is very difficult to understand. How can Hashem command me to have an emotion? Further, why is the entire Torah connected to this Mitzvah?

  Our emotions are effected by our thoughts. Hillel, in expressing this Mitzvah, said “Don’t treat others in a manner which you hate.” The Tzemach Tzedek, (the third Lubavitcher Rebbe) explained Hillel’s words. We all resent when people dwell on our faults. Although we make mistakes, we want others to concentrate on the positive things that we have accomplished, not the negative. Hillel teaches us to treat others in the same manner. Rather than thinking about their faults, ignore their faults and think about the good that they have done. Suddenly, it becomes much easier to stop hating and start loving.

  In order to love someone as ourselves, we must come to a higher awareness of our own being. We are each souls, and our bodies are merely the vehicles of the soul’s expression. The entire Jewish people are one entity working to perfect the world through Torah and Mitzvot and prepare the world for Moshiach’s coming. Although some of us are less active in our mission, we are all parts of one body. As such, loving of our fellow Jew is tantamount to loving ourselves. This higher awareness is the basis of the entire Torah.

  The word Iyar, the month we bless this Shabbat, is an abbreviation of the Hebrew verse Ani Hashem Rofecha (I am Hasem your healer.) Our prolonged exile is the sickness that has enveloped the world for much too long. The Temple was destroyed because of wanton hatred and will be rebuilt because of Ahavat Yisrael. Let’s each do something special for Jewish unity and may we speedily see the coming of Moshiach.

Shabbat Shalom and Chodesh Tov,

Rabbi Biggs
