Korach – The Cancer of Envy

Korach, the central figure, and name, of our Parsha this week, was a gifted individual. Smart, eloquent, wealthy, holding a high position, and a member of Moses’ own  family, he had everything going for him. But he had a   flawed character. He wanted more. He craved the  leadership of the Jewish people. Or at least the High Priesthood. The result was a failed rebellion and an ignominious departure from the stage of Jewish history.
