DVAR TORAH FROM

FEELING CONNECTED

On the Yovel- Jubilee Year, the 50th year of the shmita cycles, the Torah instructs us to blow the shofar throughout the land – “taaviru shofar b’chol artzechem” (Vayikra 25:9). We are familiar with the annual mitzvah of blowing the shofar on Rosh Hashana in order to invoke Hashem’s mercy on the Day of Judgment, but what purpose does blowing the shofar during Yovel serve?

 

The Sefer HaChinuch (mitzvah 331) explains that Yovel released all indentured slaves, which was a significant loss to many owners. A servant was something very difficult to part with. The Torah commands that the shofar be sounded throughout the land as a signal for everyone to act in concert. The knowledge that thousands of slave-owners were going through the same difficult process gave one the fortitude and courage to do the right thing. Although a slave owner may know intellectually what he has to do, the shofar blast reminds him that he is not alone.

 

This concept is expanded by the Sefer HaChinuch to describe the psychological phenomenon that suffering is somewhat mitigated when experienced together with others – “tzaar rabim, nechama”.

 

Rabbi Shimshon Pincus z"l illustrated this concept with the following analogy. If someone has a broken water tank at home and can't take a hot shower, the repairman will hopefully be able to schedule a visit within the next few days. Until the repair is completed, he might need to rough it for a few days with cold showers. However, if the water tank in an apartment building is malfunctioning and it is affecting dozens of residents, the repairman will likely be there to fix it within a couple hours. The nechama, consolation and relief, is expediated when the difficulty is experienced as a collective.

 

Lag Baomer is celebrated joyously because it commemorates the cessation of the tragic death of Rabbi Akiva's students. Until this day we study the cause for their deaths (see Gemara Yevamos 63b) and collectively commit to be more sensitive in our interpersonal relationships and fulfil Rabbi Akiva's mandate of transmitting Torah knowledge to the next generation. To the extent that we all learn from the national tragedy, we will experience redemption with the sound of the shofar heralding Mashiach in our days.

 

Wishing you all a wonderful Shabbos!

Rabbi David Claman
