Description

What motivated Moav to gather Midian's support and hire Bilam? What was the message of Bilam's third curse/blessing, and why did this so aggravate Balak? The Netziv's approach, which includes side notes on the nature of chesed vs. talmud torah, the value of embracing a single mitzvah, the existence of Jewish communities in the Diaspora since the days of the Shoftim, the righteousness of wicked people and the goal of exile.
