Applies To Me

May 21st, 2010 by Rabbi Simcha Weinberg in Portion of the Week
“One who sees the Sotah in her shame, shall become a Nazir.” My Rebbi, HaRav Yochanan Zweig, asks how thirty days of being a Nazir is more powerful than watching the Sotah explode? He compares this to people who drive by an accident without stopping and becoming directly involved. We have the capacity to deny that something is relevant to us. The person who watches the Sotah explode will deny the relevance to him. The process of becoming a Nazir is a way of overcoming our propensity to deny. The Nazir accepts that what he witnessed applied to him, and that he must accept what he saw as relevant. The Nazir accepts that what he saw must becoming a permanent part of his memory.
