In Loving Memory of Moreinu Horav Shmuel Yaakov Weinberg, Rosh HaYeshiva Ner Yisroel
Chukas (Numbers 19-22)

Metzora (Leviticus 14-15)

14:34 When you come into the land of Canaan that I am giving you for an inheritance, I will give an affliction of tzoraas in the house of the land of your inheritance.

The form that this verse is written suggests of an announcement for something good that is to occur. Indeed, Rashi notes, the prescribed demolishing of walls in the afflicted home revealed treasures that the Canaanites hid inside them.

The Talmud states that Heaven decrees the affliction upon a person who has certain socially deficient behaviors and character traits (Arachin 16a).

It is interesting to note that the Torah does not promise treasures to those who do not have these deficiencies.

I take from this that the Torah is telling us that a person who is not deficient is far better off than those who have them, despite the treasures.

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.
