around the conspiracy to
learn the secret of his great
strength: his unshorn locks of
hair. Once Samson was
deprived of his hair while he
slept, his great strength ebb-
ed. The Philistines seized
Samson, then blinded and in-
carcerated him.
Tales of Samson's daring
adventures against a foreign
oppressor made him a folk
hero all because, as he told
Delilah, he was a "Nazarite
unto God."
One can hardly leave this
sedra without reflecting how
modern this subject of mak-
ing a vow can be. What is a
vow? Is it not a promise to do
something? If made to
another person, does it not in-
volve a question of trust? If
someone promises something,
that is in a sense a vow. But
wht happens if the promise is

not fulfilled? Our times are
full of broken promises,
broken pledges, broken vows
. . . and not just in the
diplomatic world, but in
every-day society.
We can't go back 2,000
years to reclaim the
Nazarites, but we can take a
second look at our sedra and
realize how necessary it is to
keep the vows we make.

"A man is as good as his
word," we say. Never mind
how to make up for broken
vows. Better to keep one's
word and we won't have to
refrain from alcohol or grow
a beard to prove our integrity.
The Talmud quotes a rabbi
sayng, "The righteous pro-
mise little and perform much.
The wicked promise much
and perform not even a lit-
tle." ❑
