NCSY Camp Sports Dvar Torah!

Dear parents and NCSYers,
-Insert cheesy line here-
Now that I got that over with, let’s enjoy a dvar torah from Rabbi Fried:

In this weeks parsha we see a fundamental difference between the way that Eisav looked at money to the way that Yaacov looked at money. When Yaacov goes to meet Eisav, he sends him presents to appease him. Eisav being extremely rich wants to return the presents, and in perek 33 pasuk 9 says “I have a lot, therefore take it back.” Yaacov responds in perek 33 pasuk 11 “no, you keep them because I have everything.”

The Chofetz Chaim points out that Eisav answers “I have a lot,” which means that even though I am very rich, I have a lot I and can always use more. Yaacov, on the other hand, answers “I have everything,” which means whatever I have from Hashem is all that I need.

The Chofetz Chaim says that this is an important lesson for the Jewish people, that when it comes to money whatever Hashem gives us is everything. Knowing this, we should not run after money like Eisav, who thinks I have a lot but could always use more.

Have a phenomenal Shabbos!

I’m excited to announce the release of the new NCSY Camp Sports Video! You can view it at theaters near you, or just find it on the camp website (campsports.ncsy.org). It is the first video link on the left. Enjoy!

Can someone please email ydeutscher@gmail.com and volunteer to write a dvar torah already! I can’t take it anymore!
