See you Tomorrow!

by Bardichev (See all authors)

This weeks Parsha teaches us about the classic fall: The chet ha-egel - the Golden Calf.

Many lessons can be learned and applied to our struggle. Here is one: (Bards-b-q style of course :-)

We find when the Jews approached Aharon Hakohen to help the with their idol, he announced: "Chag LaHashem Machar - Tomorrow will be a holiday!"

Aharon Hakohen!!?? What's going on?? Was he helping them worship??

Ella Mai?? Aharon Hakohen is teaching all of Klal Yisrael a great and effective tool how to deal with the Yetzer Hara.

Machar! Tomorrow! Manyana!! Not now! Shpeter!

Sometimes when we are so fired up, all logical answers fall on deaf ears.

We can take a lesson from Aharon Hakohen. Yes, you can at least push off the Yetzer Hara till tomorrow!!
