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!

Stained-Glass Look-Alikes

1. Cut 2 pieces of waxed paper to be the same size and shape.

2. Collect flat things that you want to encase in the waxed paper.

3. Place one sheet of wax paper down, and arrange all your flat objects on it. Add crayon shavings as a colorful background and surrounding color.

4. Get an adult to help with this step. Place the other piece of wax paper on top, and iron the artwork (make sure you iron on the appropriate surface, such as on top of some newspapers). Iron until all the shavings are melted and the wax paper is stuck together.

5. Wait for it to cool, then trim the edges. Make a hole near the top to hang it if you would like!
