RABBI’S MESSAGE - Bandwagon Jews
Moshe had asked Pharoh to release the Jews for a three day trip to serve Hashem in the wilderness.
When Pharoah now notices that B’nei Yisrael are not intending to return at all, the Torah records that, “
Pharoh said toB’nei Yisrael (“L’bnei Yosrael”), they are trapped in the wilderness.”
To whom exactly was Pharoh speaking ? The Jews had already departed .
Rashi anwers that “l’bnei yisrael” means “regarding the Jewish people.” Namely, Pharaoh
commented regarding the people that they were in fact trapped in the desert.
Targum Yonasan says that l’bnei yisrael means “to the Jewish people”. Specifically, Pharoh spoke to
two Jews named Dathan and Aviram.
But if the Jews had already left Egypt, what were these two men still doing there?
R. Yochanan Zweis argues that Dathan and Aviram were not really interested in joining the people in
a three day religious revival. They were rather content with their Jewish Egyptian identity and stayed in
Mitzrayim thinking the people would be back in three days. But when Pharoah commented to them that
the Jews were not coming back, then Dathan and Aviram were not ready to abandon their people
entirely, so they picked up and left as well.
I would suggest that Dathan and Aviram were bandwagon Jews. They saw which way the parade
was going and they jumped on that bandwagon. When they believed Pharoh was in charge, they cast
their lot in Egypt and remained with Pharoah. When they saw that Hashem had indeed taken the people
out, they jumped onto that bandwagon.
And later on, when they saw Moshe as head honcho, they followed him. Yet when they saw Korach
leading a potentially successful rebellion, they hopped on the bandwagon with him.
But Judaism of course is no parade and how we live our lives cannot be based on wagon hopping.
We must most importantly be knowledgeable Torah Jews, and then with conviction we must live by
those principles.
When it comes to an honest Torah life, we are well advised to leave the wagon for the band.
Good Shabbos. If you have an halachic question, email: [email protected] I welcome your

PRESIDENTS CORNER
Board Meeting Update:
The Board met as scheduled this week. Of
particular note was the fact that approximately
$110,000 is owed to Kingsway by members for
dues and building fund. To be clear, this
amount is comprised of money owed for 3
months or more. Any manner in which one may
slice this, $110,000 is not an insignificant
number. With everyone pitching in and doing
his/her share, we can bring this number down
to where it should be. Let's remember please to
take care of our Kingsway as Kingsway takes
care of all of us...always with an open heart and
eager to serve.
Superbowl Sunday:
A) The Wandering Q Truck will be at Kingsway
this Sunday. See bulletin for details. An
important FYI regarding this event. Earlier this
week, we had a conference call with Robbie
Zeitz and the Wandering Q Chef himself for the
purpose of reviewing the plans for this Sunday
and addressing the issues that arose last time
the truck came to spend an afternoon with us.
We hope that the plans we have discussed and
implemented will pay off. This should be
evidenced by faster moving lines.
B) We invite you to bring your friends and family
to the catering hall this Sunday, watch the
game and partake in the Q. Even if you are not
a football fan or a sports fan, this is a great
opportunity to get together with people and of
course to support the shul. The game will be
broadcast in the catering hall on several big
screens we have rented. Looking forward to
seeing you there.
C) Fundraiser- Support the shul and have fun at
the same time. Superbowl Boxes are available
to be purchased. Cash prizes to be awarded.
Please see bulletin for details.
Good Shabbos and we look forward to seeing
you on Sunday at the QYitz Elman and Jeff Grodko- Presidium
