Shelach 5781 – Fixing our Broken Compasses

Posted by Tovah Leah Nachmani on June 1, 2021
Topics: Torah, Pardes from Jerusalem, Bamidbar (Numbers), Shelach

Critical thinking is the hallmark of our tradition. Overly critical thinking that leads to pessimism, on the other hand, can lead us down a path of demoralization and destruction. What was the failed leadership of the leaders who were sent to scout out the Promised Land? What did it take – and will it take – to get the Israelites back on the right path? How may a good heart and a non-naive optimism be the very tools that can fix the failures of leadership – from politician to parent – that lead us astray in our lives today?
