What do your Roshim never leave the house without?
(page 8)


nd yet another week are we closer to witnessing the spectacular Winter Camp

Machaneh Nissim, Hadracha in the Holy Land and Gurim Seminar at the super Sarabi lodge
#excitement #whatfancyaccommodation. But otherwise amidst the exam stress #panic and
anticipation for holidays I hope you are all getting pumped for Yom Yerushalayim. What
better way to celebrate our beautiful Jerusalem than with a yum breakfast and insanely
inspiring EQT on Sunday. Also, can I mention that there might be a sneaky announcement
on the Bnei Akiva South Africa Facebook Page involving camp? #watchthatspace.

But if you will not listen to Me and will not perform all of these commandments… I will assign
upon you panic. (Lev. 26:14)

God warns, "If you transgress the Torah, you will be punished with suffering." The Torah then
elaborates on the punishments, beginning with 'I will visit upon you confusion." Rabbi Zalman
Sorotzkin explains this curse to mean that we will be beset with confusion and nervous tension.
He notes that this curse has been fulfilled in our time; people live hectic, pressure-laden lives,
rushing from one activity to the next.

In today's "instant generation" no one has patience for anything. Driving is a good example: if
you want to know the smallest unit of time, try measuring the amount of time it takes from
when the light turns green until the car behind you starts beeping! Our worst nightmare is
getting stuck by a red light, or even worse - behind a school bus letting off children, whether we
are actually in a rush or not. Stores have video screens to keep people waiting on the checkout
line occupied. E-Z pass is no longer sufficient, rather we need E-Z pass Express, so that we don't
have to slow down for a second. Soon we'll be able to take care of all our errands without
stepping out of the car; everything will be Drive-thru!

We may think that this is all a blessing, because we can accomplish so much more in less time.
However, not only is it a curse - it is the first curse mentioned in this week's Torah portion.
Rabbi Sorotzkin goes on to explain that this lack of inner tranquility is a punishment for having
lost our patience in our service of God. In order to regain our sense of inner peace we must set
aside time for prayer and mitzvot. Then God will bless us with a life of physical and mental
tranquility. Therefore, don’t feel bad to take a breather when learning for exams or just in the

constant chaos of life. #maybeabreakmeansyouget100%ontheexam

1. To what do the words "bechukotai telechu" refer?
2. What is meant by "you shall eat your bread to satisfaction"?
3. What is meant by "and a sword will not pass through your land?"
4. Which progression of seven transgressions are taught in Chapter 26, and why in that

particular order?
5. What is one benefit which the Jewish People derive from the Land of Israel’s state of

6. What positive element is implied by the words "and I will bring them into the land of

their enemies?"
7. In verse 26:42, why is the word "remember" not used in connection with the name of

8. What happens when a poor person dedicates the value of a person to the Beit

Hamikdash and doesn’t have sufficient funds to fulfill his vow?
9. Where must "ma’aser sheini" be eaten?

1. Laboring in the study of Torah.
2. You will only require a little bread to be completely satisfied.
3. No foreign army will travel through your land even on their way to a different country.
4. Not studying Torah, not observing mitzvot, rejecting those who observe mitzvot, hating Sages,

preventing others from observing mitzvot, denying that Hashem gave the mitzvot, denying the
existence of Hashem. They are listed in this order because each transgression leads to the next.
5. No enemy nation will be able to settle in the Land of Israel.
6. Hashem Himself, so to speak, will bring them into their enemies’ land. This means that even when
the Jews are in exile, Hashem will supply them with leaders who inspire them to keep the Torah.
This guards the Jews from assimilating into the host culture.
7. Because the image of Yitzchak’s ashes (Yitzchak was prepared to be brought as an offering) upon
the altar is always before Hashem.
8. The person whose value was donated goes before the kohen, who sets the obligation according to
the poor person’s ability to pay.
9. In Jerusalem.



Holy City

Get into the car and just start driving. Your heart will know to take you there, without even
thinking about it. The views are quickly changing: crowded city, and than fields, vineyards,
forests. The road goes up and up, you almost there. The valley is seen now just behind
you, and the bridge that says “you made it” is finally appeared. You get out of the car, the
air is so much clearer here. Take a deep breath. This is Jerusalem.
“Ten measures of beauty descended into the world; nine Jerusalem took”. There’s a good
reason for this statement in the Talmud. Just like an international model, this city doesn’t
have a bad side. Come on sunrise, sunset, just before Shabbat or on a regular day, she is
always beautiful, makes you feel like she was waiting just for you to finally come back
home. This is the holy city, and you’ll always feel a better version of yourself when you get
here. This city is you.
