Is it Morning again in America?

Friday, 29 July, 2016 - 1:24 pm

Two Conventions. Two vastly different views on our country.

Ironically, “It’s morning again in America,” might be associated with the Democratic party and doom and gloom the domain of the GOP. Pundits will argue that’s expected from the incumbent party versus the challenging party.

One thing is certain, however.  Everybody wants “morning” again tomorrow.

This week’s parsha, Pinchas, discusses many of the sacrifices, including the daily offerings.  Every day an offering was brought in the morning and in the afternoon, toward evening. The sacrifices were identical.

It’s obvious that G-d wants us to serve Him every day.  But why was the offering brought twice in one day?

In 1984, the Lubavitcher Rebbe explained this mitzvah as follows:

“Morning” symbolizes the bright, happy times in life, while the “evening” symbolizes the dark, difficult times. Just as we are to serve G-d when things are going well, so should we keep serving Him during the difficult periods in life. This constancy cements our relationship with Him and enables us to develop a true feeling of closeness to Him.

In other words, reaching out to G-d in great times strengthens our relationship with Him, as does reaching out to Him in challenging times.

Whatever color your politics or outlook - In G-d We Trust.

May we be blessed with “morning” in the entire world – with the imminent arrival of Moshiach!
