Brilliant, wealthy, influential, and tasked with transporting the Ark of the Covenant, Korach had it all.

But it wasn't enough. He wanted more.

Korach wanted to usurp Moshe's leadership  and he wanted to commandeer Aharon's role as Kohen Gadol.

Like all who reach too far, Korach was ultimately buried by his own perfidy, avarice, and unbridled ambition.
