One of the greatest Jewish leaders in history was willing to share the honor with others, setting his own ego aside for the greater good.
In this week’s Torah portion, Vayakhel, we are introduced to Betzalel, one of the greatest leaders of the Jewish people, who was chosen to oversee the construction of the Tabernacle in the desert.
What was the secret to Betzalel’s greatness as a leader? His selflessness and willingness to share the honor with others reflected his ability to place the needs and well-being of the community over his own desire for recognition.
Rabbi Ari Enkin, Rabbinic Director of United with Israel, explains in this video the importance of ego-less leadership!
