5779 — Shelach: Calev and Joshua, Two Models of Leadership

Posted by Alex Israel on June 12, 2019
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem, Torah, Bamidbar (Numbers), Shelach

Our parsha this week deals with leadership, as 10 spies manage to sway an entire nation to reject the Promised land. Two individuals stand against the crowd. But the two are not identical. Calev and Yehoshua are very different people. We will study these tow leaders and propose that whatever your leadership qualities, you can always exert influence over those around you.
