The Torah did not countenance disregard to any part of Creation.

?There is irony in the celebration of Shavuot. There at Mount Sinai we received the promise of a land that would be ours alone. The irony is that, while none of them knew it yet, every one of those people who were gathered at the foot of the mountain who were twenty years or older were never going to cross the Jordan.

This is a difficult time in Israel, some would say the most difficult time. There is no clear roadmap to peace. The economy has been decimated by the obliteration of tourism and of foreign investment. Israelis are battered by the tragedy of lost life. They are emotionally spent. Israelis are uncertain as to what to do.

The traditional joy of the observance of Passover this year is tarnished by events in Israel and great concern for the future. There is no need to recount the gruesome and mournful numbers of murdered and maimed Jews in Netanya, in Elon Moreh, and in a Jerusalem supermarket yesterday.

Villainy and evil are not strangers to us. And yet among all the villains and disciples of evil known in our history, the paradigm of evil singled out by Moses and by God is not one of the usual suspects. The person considered by God to be of greater villainy, far greater perverseness, far greater depravity than Pharaoh, is Amalek.
