The Chassidishe Parsha
 Parsha Shlach: Vayishlach Yehoshua Miraglim 
“Vayishlach Yehoshua...Miraglim": This week’s Haftorah, mentions the sending of spies to Yericho by Yehoshua, and thus relates to the similar action taken by Moshe in this week’s Parsha. We are all aware of the episode that occurred with the spies sent by Moshe and the tragic outcomes that resulted; the entire Jewish people between the ages of 20 and 60 were destined to die in the desert and not enter into Eretz Yisrael as result of the sin. We would think that such a spy mission would never be repeated in our history, and certainly not by those that lived in that generation ■ more

Rabbi Raphael Tennenhaus
 A Small Bite of Shabbos Delight 
THE MOSHIACH WATCH: In this weeks' Parsha, the spies brought back an "evil report" about the land of Israel. Commentaries and Chassidus explain that the ambivalence to enter Israel was because many were of the feeling, that the physical land of Israel, which required sowing and plowing the land, would take people away from Torah and holiness. The spies erred in their reasoning ■ more

"Pilot" Tzivos Hashem
 Chinuch Hora'ah of the Day: 

Chinuch Hora'ah of the Day: As an educator, you know that children need motivation, but that is only one aspect of the problem. The most important aspect, in my opinion, in this day and age, is the lack of Kabolas Ol [acceptance of the yoke], not only of Ol Malchus Shomayim [the yoke of the sovereignty of Heaven], but also general insubmission to authority, including the authority of parents at home and of teachers in school, and the authority of law and order in the street ■ more
