EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION

 

After experiencing intense oppression, the Jewish People finally receive a message of redemption: Moshe relays the promise that Hashem will take them out, rescue them, and take them to Eretz Yisrael. What is there reaction? Lo shamu el Moshe, they don’t listen to Moshe. Why? Mikotzer ruach umei’avodah kashah. Their backbreaking labor caused a shortness of breath and despair that precluded them from hearing any positive message of change.

Ralbag, however, provides an original and insightful interpretation into kotzer ruach. The Jewish People weren’t receptive to Moshe’s message because the presentation wasn’t tailor made and crafted for them. The subject of kotzer ruach was Moshe!

This teaches a very practical and relevant message. It’s not as much about communicating the message inasmuch as the way in which the message is packaged. Why do our children sometimes have such a hard time listening and sometimes seemingly apathetic to our instructions and requests?

Perhaps they are picking up this very sentiment from their parents.

When we speak to our children, coworkers or friends, are we really present? Are we thoughtful about our message being communicated sensitively and lovingly? Perhaps this is an area we can all improve upon.

Let us commit to finding the wisdom and patience to be an effective communicator and ultimately a better parent, spouse and friend.

Wishing you all a wonderful Shabbos!  

Rabbi David Claman
