Chukas (Numbers 19-22)

Ki Savo (Deuteronomy 26-29)

28:68 And G-d will bring you back to Egypt in boats, on the path that I told you that you will no longer see, and there you will sell yourselves to your enemies for slaves and maids, and there will be no buyer.

How is it possible to be sold if there is no buyer?

Perhaps the final words of the dreaded curses have a ray of hope for us all, according to the Chamudei Tzvi commentary.

A person can sell everything he has to a buyer. And in the days of slavery this includes his freedom.

But the most a buyer can own are obligations that the slave has to him and the slave's rights.

However, when a Jew is unfortunately sold into slavery, it only affects his body and what he does. His soul, his hopes, his connection with G-D, and his eternity are not included in the transaction and will therefore never have a buyer.

Rabbi General's Warning: Unbridled web surfing is not recommended. Navigate the web with caution. Use the Internet in a way so that it enhances quality of life for yourself as a person, as a family member, and as a member in society. The Internet can enhance the mastery of Torah knowledge and it can also interfere. If you are able to study in a Bet Medrash at this time then you should do so right now.
