Dvar Torah by Rabbi Zelig Pliskin

Dvar Torah by Rabbi Zelig Pliskin

The Torah states: “You are standing this day, all of you before G-d your Lord; your leaders, your tribes, your elders and your officers, every man of Israel” (Deut. 29:9).

The Midrash Yalkut Shimoni comments on this verse: “When are the Jewish people ‘standing’? When they are together (‘all of you’). Even a young child can break a single reed. However, a bunch of reeds together is strong and cannot be broken. The Jewish people will not be redeemed until they are a unified group.”
