Shiur #1: 'Meraglim' or Fact Finding Mission?
'Meraglim' or Fact Finding Mission?
What was so terrible about the sin of the "meraglim?" After all, they were instructed to report the facts, and that's exactly what they did! Furthermore, even if we consider their report as deliberately slanted, why should the entire nation be punished for being misled by a small group? Finally, even if the people's initial reaction was improper, immediately afterward they repent by declaring their willingness to take the challenge of conquering the Land!
Why then is Dor HaMidbar punished so severely? Why must they wander for forty years until they perish? This week's shiur examines this tragic event in an attempt to understand why.
