The Butterfly

Thursday, 2nd March 2017

A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day a small opening appeared. He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could, and it could go no further.


The man decided to help the butterfly. He took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon.


The butterfly then emerged easily. But it had a swollen body and small, shrivelled wings.


The man continued to watch the butterfly because he expected that, at any moment, the wings would enlarge and expand to be able to support the body, which would contract in time.


Neither happened! In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with a swollen body and shriveled wings. It never was able to fly.


What the man, in his kindness and haste, did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the tiny opening were G-d's way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon.

Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our lives. If G-d allowed us to go through our lives without any obstacles, it would cripple us. We would not be as strong as what we could have been. We could never fly!

This week’s Sedra (Torah portion), Mishpotim, deals with so many laws.
Why does the Torah have to be so complicated and contain so many rules?

The Sedra comprises of 52 mitzvos including the specific detailed laws of slaves and sacrifices.

We must understand that we are G-d’s representatives on earth, we have to be immaculate, we have to strive to be perfect, because we have to be sanctifying Hashem’s (G-d’s) name in the world.

Perfection is achieved only through perfect detail. Judaism needs the details. E.g. difference between a kosher and a non-kosher or between a £15 and a £400 Esrog can be just one dot. But that makes such a huge difference - 2 parallels: 

i) Buckingham Palace guards absolutely perfectly dressed.  Buttons done up exactly, clothes ironed perfectly, exactly rightly fitted helmet, everything about them immaculate. Why?  Because they are guarding the queen.  They are representing her. 

ii) Airplanes are amazing flying machines. Only possible because every screw is fastened correctly, because every part e.g. on each wing is shaped at the perfect angle, every wire is wired completely correctly etc. It takes one thing, any one thing to be slightly wrong, and the whole plane would crash and cause a serious accident. 

Details can make such a huge physical difference. How much more so we have to be careful that we have everything right to the millimetre when we are dealing with spiritual pursuits.

Antiques Roadshow - Holocaust Special

Thursday, 19th January 2017


Antiques Roadshow (BBC) 15th January 2017

As preparations begin to mark Holocaust Memorial Day later this month, Fiona Bruce and a small team of experts meet a remarkable group of British survivors whose lives were shattered by the events of World War II. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office hosts a special gathering as Jewish families come together to talk - many for the first time on television - about life under Hitler's tyranny. Precious objects that help tell their stories include family silver hidden from the Nazis, a pair of striped trousers worn in Auschwitz and a gold coin used by a family as vital currency when fleeing over the Pyrenees. In a rare break from tradition, the items screened will not be valued due to their priceless nature and historical importance.
