Our perspective on a situation – whether personal, national or global – could make all the difference.
As the bible recounts in this week’s Torah portion, Shlach (Numbers 13:1-15:41), when the Jews were wandering in the desert, Moses sent 12 spies to check out the Land of Israel. Ten spies returned with an evil report, and as a result, the Jewish people were punished.
What was so wrong with what they said? After all, it was true.
Apparently, it’s all a matter of perspective.
In this video, Rabbi Ari Enkin, United with Israel’s rabbinic director, discusses the issue and explains what we can all learn from the experience.
