"Finding the Sparks" - Comments

1 Dave Levin on 2007 11 04

What, I’m the first ? Hopefully not the last.  Beautiful and timely as always.  As I teach in an urban secular high school in NYC ( enough said ), my challenge is to incorporate your thoughts in a secular manner to ( in a mathematical sense as that’s what I teach ) a low common denominator audience.  The spark exists in my students but is overladen by the debris of neglect and ignorance.  Through goodness and mercy and your inspiration we shall persevere.

I have heard of this concept of collecting sparks of holiness from Rav Shaul Kagan, z"l.  He said that that was the cheshbon of Elimlech, Machlon and Kilyon.  They perceived a spark of holiness in Moav, so they went to find it.  They waited for the opportune time - a fmaine.  Nonetheless, they were punished because the quest for holy sparks did not override their responsibility to the khal.
