Based on the teachings of: R’ Menachem Schneerson and R’ Akiva Tatz
In this week’s Parsha we learn about an Asham Taluy. This sacrifice is brought by someone who sins inadvertently. An obvious question is, why would this sacrifice be more costly to an individual than to one atoning for a sin he committed purposefully?
The answer lies deep in the psyche of the transgressing sinner. When one is tempted in life, he might clearly know what he is doing may be 100% wrong. However, the Torah understands that G-d gave us an evil inclination which people may unfortunately succumb to (whereby becoming distant). That is why Hashem created Teshuva (as a means to “return” to Him). This may be much more clear to a blatantly violating individual. However, when someone sins inadvertently, there is much more going on underneath the surface. These ideas with which his thoughts are immersed in show where his true pleasure lies (an evil dimension). There is a subconscious connection to the sin that his mind needs to be purged of that allows him to “slip-up” with in the first place. This Korban enter site , if it reaches deeper into his pockets and his soul, will hopefully help him become Karov go /closer (which is the root word of Korban) to G-d (by decreasing his distance).
May we all recognize what we need to do to become ‘closer’ to Hashem, without the need for nisyonos/tests or Karbanos. Then, through the corrections, we will actualize our greater inherent spiritual potentials. This will undoubtably bring G-d’s Ultimate Presence back into the world, decrease Amalek/Haman (our ‘separation’ from Him), and bring about the coming of Mashiach speedily in our days. Amen.
