What do we take with us to the next world? Chaya Rivka Zwolinski explains.
Chaim Kramer discusses the weekly Torah portion, Parshat Korach. Although Korach was very wealthy, he was jealous of Moshe’s status as the leader of the Jewish nation, and this jealousy led to rebellion. Korach’s desire for honor led to destruction. This arrogant lust for honor and power still burns in the hearts of many people today. But honor and power if used incorrectly not only destroy others, but also one’s self. Rebbe Nachman teaches us not to give in to the desire for honor and be swallowed up by our own materialism.

It’s not difficult to argue that today’s materialism is out of control. We are barraged with increasingly sophisticated attempts to convince us that more is better and having the best is a necessity. There is a pervasive, even reflexive belief that we are defined by the ways in which we express and fulfill our materialistic desires. The near-Universal lust for money blocks our ability to grasp the reality of Divine Providence. This is our present-day idolatry.
