There is so much that can be said about the Torah portion of Pinchas and the reading of it which will take place in our Centres all over the world come this Saturday morning. It is written that what made Pinchas a leader, what made him so unique, is that he was given the gift of shalom, which means peace. Disease (or, dis-ease, if you will) is said to begin in the heart. Imagine. If this was true, and I believe it is, how many diseases could be eliminated if only we could heal our hearts? The Zohar in the portion of Pinchas gives us a secret that the best preventative medicine is shalom, inner peace.
