Description

How is every Jewish census an expression of Divine love? Why did Hashem wait a month after mishkan's opening to count us? Why did He wait over a year before organizing us by flags? How can one possibly overcome the temptation to revenge and to grudge? ... and, what does all this teach us about balancing personal identity and individual avoda vs. national togetherness? What is the "X factor"? * * * based upon Rashi, Rav Yaacov Kaminetsky (Emes le-Yaacov 1:1) and Rav Shimon Shkop (intro to Sha'arei Yosher).
