Special to The Jewish News

I

t may come as a surprise
to some of us that criti-
cism is not only regarded
as a virtue by Judaism but is
included as a full biblical
commandment, one of the 613
Mitzvot: "Thou shall not hate
thy brother in thy heart, thou
shall surely rebuke thy
neighbor — and not bear sin
because of him?'
Indeed, not only is criticism
one of the important com-
mandments, it is one of the
main functions of our
religion. This it does by serv-
ing as our critic, by focusing
our attention on the distance
between the ideal and the
real, by revealing our im-
perfections and then urging
us to strive for the perfect.
Moses and Baalam were
both prophets. They lived at
the same time and preached

Criticism A Central

to the same Jewish people.
Moses often was merciless in
his criticism of his people. He
reminded them of their short-
comings and failings and call-
ed them to task time and
again.
Baalam, the non-Jewish
prophet featured prominent-
ly in this week's sidra, spoke
only kind and gentle words to
the Jewish people. He hailed
them, complimented them,
blessed them, flattered them.
While Moses berated them as
stubborn and contentious,
Baalam greeted them with
Mah 7bvu "How goodly are
your tents, 0 Jacob?'
In retrospect, however,
Moses is the archetype of the
navi haemet, the true pro-
phet, while Baalam is the
navi hasheker, the prophet of
falsehood. Moses who criticiz-
ed is truly a prophet; Baalam
who did not is merely a
soothsayer. At the time Moses
spoke, our ancestors must
have felt offended by his
scathing words. Yet the judg-
ment of history was reverence
