Insights into Parshat Pinchas of Mr. Elinatan Weinstein of Yeshivat Sha’alvim, by Rav Re’uven Ungar of Sha’alvim.
In this weeks Parsha there is a Pasuk that says “Hineni noten lo et briti Shalom” (25:12) (“Behold I give to him my covenant of peace”). This Pasuk refers to Pinchas who zealously defended the honor of Hashem at a time when many Jews were engaged in a terrible sin with the Midianites. He took action by killing Zimri, a prince of the Tribe of Shimon who was involved in this sin. Pinchas’ zealous action immediately ended the plague that had come upon the Jewish Camp as a result of their mass sin. In addition to the bracha of Shalom, Pinchas was elevated from being a Levi to a Cohen.
The S’fat Emet asks: What is the connection between his action and the job of being a Cohen? How is his reward equal to his actions?
He explains that there were many Jews who were incensed at what Zimri was doing but they contained their feelings of anger and shame and did nothing to change the situation. Only Pinchas stood up against the evil that Zimri was doing, he was acting as a messenger on behalf of the Jews. The Cohanim also act as the representatives of Israel and Pinchas who took this mission upon himself deserved him a place as a Cohen. This was a true midah k’neged midah (trait for trait).
This whole thing comes to teach us a huge lesson for our lives. We can’t stand ideally and just let things happen all around us. We have to be the Pinchas of our times and step up to the challenge of being the leaders of our nation and the world and showing everyone what it means to be a Torah Jew.
