Korach: An anatomy of betrayal

For 40 years the rabbi has been trying to understand two biblical figures, Datan and Aviram, whose behavior seems inexplicable. Listen to his insights.

My mother in law used to tell me not to take hurtful remarks to heart, to forget them.

Datan and Aviram made a habit of trying to hurt Moshe, but the Torah tells us about it each time. Why? 

Since making aliya in 1982, Rabbi Gold has built and served as the Rav of Kehilat Zichron Yoseph in Har Nof, and in 1984 founded the Avrom Silver Jerusalem College for Adults, which merged with the Israel Center in 2002, where Rabbi Gold, as Dean, is teaching Torah today.

For the past decades, Rabbi Gold has been at the forefront of the struggle for Eretz Yisrael. He was one of the founders of the Ichud Harabanim L’maan Eretz Yisrael V’am Yisrael , under the guidance of the Chief Rabbis Avraham Shapira z”l and Mordechai Eliyahu z”l.

His shiurim have been an inspiration to many, including the countless families whose decision to make aliya was a result of listening to “Rabbi Gold’s Tapes.”
