TORAH PORTION

As Important As The Goal
Is The Manner Of The Quest

RABBI ELIEZER COHEN

Special to The Jewish News

p

arshas Shoftim is the
Torah portion of
leadership and
authority. It begins with the
mandate to appoint judges
and enforcement officials and
continues on to discuss the
proper role and authority of
the rabbinical authorities,
the king, the priest, the pro-
phet and the military
authorities.
There is one small, easily
overlooked, three-word phrase
written specifically with
regard to the judges that real-
ly defines the proper gOal and
method of all leadership and,
in fact, all human behavior.
TZEDEK, TZEDEK TIRDOF
the Torah tells us. "Right-
eousness, righteousness thou
shalt pursue!"
The repetition of the word
righteousness has a number
of rabbinic explanations and

interpretations, but to my
mind, what the Ibrah is tell-
ing us is simple: pursue right-
eousness - and do it
righteously.
All too often we find even
worthy and proper leaders
whose vision of righteousness
and good is so overwhelming
that they must achieve these
ends - regardless of the

means necessary. In our own
day, we've witnessed many
political leaders and social
reformers who with such
behavior have abused the
authority and trust ceded to
them.
The ultimate goal of right-
eousness and good must be
pursued - but the pursuit
itself must be righteous and
good. And this lesson must be
the watchword not only for
those in leadership, but for
each of us.

Our lives are quite often
measured by the goals we
have achieved; but the very
"stuff" that our lives are
made of is the time and the ef-
fort, the challenge and com-
mitment of the pursuit itself.
9.b live a life of right-
eousness and goodness re-
quires more than just achieve-
ment of proper goals. A
righteous and proper life is
one whose very makeup is
permeated with small acts,
with the seconds and the
minutes of goodness and
righteousness.
We must not lose sight of
the ultimate goal - but even
more important we must not
trivialize our quest for that
goal.
