Weekly Words of Torah
It is Hashem!
Insights into Parshat Shelach by an alumnus of Yeshivat Sha’alvim, by Rav Re’uven Ungar of Sha’alvim.
“And Caleb silenced (vayahas) the people on Moshe” (Bamidbar 13:30).
What did Caleb intend by this statement? Rashi explains that Caleb intended to capture the attention of the Jewish People. By singling out Moshe, the people assumed that Caleb intended to utter negative statements concerning the leadership of Moshe. Instead, Caleb took the opportunity to praise the work of Moshe Rabbeinu.
The Meshech Chochma explains the actions of Caleb in a different vein.
Chazal comment that Eldad and Meydad (in Parshat Be’ha’alotcha) prophesied that Moshe would die and Yeshoshua would lead the Jewish People into the Land of Israel. This frightened the Jewish People- how could they conquer the inhabitants of The Land without Moshe Rabbeinu?! This demoralized them, and let the discouragement of the spies (Meraglim) find support amongst the Jewish People.
Caleb’s response to this point of view: WRONG! If Hashem intends for the Jewish People to conquer The Land- it will transpire even without Moshe Rabbeinu. Caleb intended for the Jewish People to focus on the promise of Hashem; what He determines, is what will transpire.
In terms of acquiring The Land of Israel- we must put our faith in Hashem and act accordingly. As righteous as individuals may be, we may never lose sight of the fact that Hashem determines Jewish destiny.
May we merit to trust in Hashem in all spheres.
