The leaders of Israel, the heads of their fathers' household, brought offerings...

This week's Torah portion describes at length the offerings of the Nesi'im (the leaders of the
tribes) on the day that the Mishkan was inaugurated. Every Nasi offered the same offering. The
Torah describes each Nasi's offering separately in virtually identical verses. Why could the Torah
not simply mention the offerings the first time and then just say that the other Nesi'im brought
the exact same offerings?

A man was once on a speaking tour and prepared long and hard for his first speech. The speech
was entertaining and engaging - a big success. The next night he was scheduled to speak in
another town, and he planned on giving the same talk. He was about to begin speaking when he
noticed that some of the people present had heard him lecture the night before! He couldn't
possibly give the same speech, so he quickly put a couple of ideas together and came up with a
new one. However, it didn't compare to the previous night. After the speech he approached the
repeat customers and apologized for not giving them a well-prepared speech. Disappointed, they
replied, "You don't understand. We enjoyed last night so much that we came back to hear the
same exact speech; we didn't want to hear a different one!"

The Torah is telling us that each Nasi who brought a sacrifice - even though it was identical to the
previous Nasi's - in God's eyes it was like the first one he received. The sacrifice of every single
Nasi was special to Him.

Sometimes we may feel that we are constantly doing the same exact thing over and over again,
whether the prayers that we say day in day out or the mitzvos that we perform, and we may lose
that initial enthusiasm. However, we must realize that every time we perform our duty God takes
pleasure in it as if we had never done it before.

(Adapted 1 minute vort @ Weekly Positive Word Power Ideas :
aish.com) Lets all go out and try do all that we do
(in both mitvos and prayers) as if It is the
first time doing them!

Everyone makes a mistake once in a while. It’s natural to try to
run from mistakes, cut losses, hope nobody notices or makes a
fuss, and move on. In reality, though, our mistakes are precious
opportunities. They give us insight into life and ourselves and
allow us to become stronger by learning to avoid the same
pitfalls in the future.

In this week’s Torah portion, Nasso, we learn about the
comeback process after making a big mistake. The verse
introduces the topic with the words “And when you shall…,” not
“if you shall…”. Mistakes are a built in feature of life and they
happen for a very good reason. When they do happen there’s
an acknowledgment of error and a process of improvement.

We like to think of ourselves as good people, which we usually
are. That doesn’t mean we’re perfect though. Life is a journey
of growth and development, and we can only grow if we know
where we are deficient. A mistake supplies that piece of the
puzzle. Our mistakes teach us what not to do in the future and
shine a light on character traits we can improve. Sometimes
they can be funny, too!
Shabbat shalom,
Sending love from the holy land

Chag Matan Torah

After spending Shavuot with the amazing community in Izinga, I can say that I missed you all
very much but also learnt a lot about other very interesting parts of the jewish community in
South Africa. On Tikun Leil in the shul I met so many different types of jews, sitting together,

learning the same torah, finding so many ways to connect to Hashem – together.

The word “Matan” comes from the word “Matana” in Hebrew – present. One of the most
amazing things about Shavuot is the fact that each one of us is able to get himself this
incredible present, every year, just like on the first time.

The fact that we are all different just makes out Torah more special. Doesn’t matter where
are you standing right now in your relationship with Hashem, you can just make the simple

choice of giving yourself this present and by that become closer to Hashem.
Give yourself a present everyday :)
