Watch: Frum Wall Street Journal Reporter Greg Zuckerman Describes Not Working On Shabbos
The Times of Israel has an article regarding some thoughts expressed by Conservatice and Reform clergy members at the DNC.
One spoke about the commandment "“Remember what Amalek did to you.”
“The core teaching is that it wasn’t Amalek who was at fault, it was us, because we, the community allowed there to be stragglers to fall behind at the rear,” Pesner said. “The test of a community, the challenge to a nation, the mandate for humanity is to never allow there to be stragglers.”
An article by Rabbi Farhi cites a thought from the Rebbe from Pasishche regarding the commandment, as well as the nation of Amalek.
The Rebbe would say that Amalek does not just strike. He tries to look for where there is no unity or community. This is the very characteristic of Amalek, as we can openly see in the words that our Rabbis termed the greatest slander that Haman was able to use against us:ישנו עם אחד מפוזר ומפורד בין העמים There is a certain people, scattered and dispersed … (Esther 3:8) Our weakness, our lack of unity was and is Amalek’s power against us.
Perhaps the individual who offered the interpretation regarding Amalek at the DNC might check Rabbi Farhi's interpretation and contribute to the unity of the Jewish people by joining traditional Judaism which his movement broke away from.
