Only Moral Purpose Can Make
Great Gifts Sources Of Blessing

RABBI IRWIN GRONER

Special to The Jewish News

I

n this week's sidrah we
read of an intense conflict
with consequences that
endured in the consciousness
of the Hebrew people. They
had just arrived at the border
of Canaan. The tribes Gad
and Reuven and a substantial
portion of the tribe of
Menasseh saw that the area
before them, trans-Jordan,
was suitable for their flocks
and offered excellent grazing
for their cattle. Consequently,
these two-and-a-half tribes
came to Moses and said, "We
are not interested in entering
the Land of Canaan. Do not
move us across the Jordan.
We have found a suitable
place for ourselves here."
This separate initiative
could have destroyed the
gathered strength of the peo-
ple and undermined their
resolve to inherit the Promis-

ed Land. Moses, therefore, ex-
acted from these tribes a pro-
mise that they would join
with their brethren in
fighting for the conquest of
Canaan. Only after the land
had been won would they be
permitted to settle east of the
Jordan.
Centuries later, as the
sages considered the fate of
these two-and-a-half tribes,
they noted: "These people
were affluent and powerful,
and they had great flocks.
Because they loved their cat-
tle so dearly, they dwelled
east of the Jordan and did not
enter the Land of Promise.
Therefore, when the enemy
came, he attacked their ex-
posed settlements first and
they went into exile before
the other tribes."
In their conclusion, the
sages declared: "There are
three great gifts that we find
in this world: wisdom, power
and wealth. However, they
will not abide unless they ex-
press the will of Heaven."
The Jew never looked with
disdain upon the material
world. He never cursed

wealth; he never deprecated
power. He certainly aspired to
knowledge. But he recognized
that these gifts do not
necessarily yield fulfillment.
Moral purpose and ethical
direction are required to
make these gifts sources of
blessing to those who possess

them. This insight is of
special meaning to our
generation.

We live in a time when
knowledge has increased
enormously, when a junior
high school student knows
more about the physical
universe than the science pro-
fessor of 40 years ago. Wealth
is available in greater abun-
dance today than in any other
time, for technology has made
possible the production and
