Parshat Shlach

Shabbat Shalom everbody,

I just heard this story and I thought it was pertinent
to share.

A teacher was teaching her elementary school class
about parshat shlach and chait ha'mraglim. A girl in
the class then asked, "if that was a sin, and Am
Yisrael was punished for that sin, then why are we not
living in Israel? Aren't we doing the same thing as
the m'raglim and Am Yisrael back then?"

May we all find our inner strength and build up our
Emunah to do what we know is right.

Shabbat Shalom.
