Volume 2, No. 14Welcome to the World of Rabbi Riddle.
Rabbi Riddle Says...
National Committee for Furtherance of Jewish Education

Awesome! And Then Some!
  Pardon Me!Compassion in Action  
In this week's Torah Portion, Shemos, Pharaoh orders the Jewish midwives to kill all the newborn boys. But the midwives feared G-d more than Pharaoh. So instead of destroying the infants, the midwives saved them! This shows us the importance of Yiras Shamayim, awe and fear of Heaven. There are two types of fear of Heaven, a lower fear and a higher fear.

  • The lower fear is fear of punishment.

  • The higher fear is awe of Heaven.

  • According to the sage Maimonides, animals need a bridle or whip to control them, but man has the ability to restrain himself!

Rabbi Riddle's Kwazy Kwestions:
  1. How can you tell how much wisdom a person has?
  1. Find out how much fear and awe of G-d he has!
