Dvar Torah for Parshat Korach

Think before you do!
by Leah Larson

This week's parsha talks about the rebellion of Korach. If you take a look at Korach's name it looks very interesting. All the letters - kuf, reish, and chet look similar to the letter hey but a little different. Hey usually stands for Hashem and it the way things are supposed to be. In the letter 'hey' there are three lines, and these lines represent thought, speech, and action. The lines of thought and speech are connected, but the line of action remains separate. The correct process is we first think about it, talk about it, and then take a pause to reconsider before we move onto action. But with Korach the shape of 'hey' is all deformed. Korach didn't have this process of stopping before action. We should all take a minute to think about what we're doing before we do it, so we don't end up regretting our actions!
Have a wonderful shabbos!
