With this post, we offer a new service.
From the archives of Nishma's Online Library, we will choose an article that relates to the week's parsha, both to direct you to this dvar Torah but also for the purposes of initiating some discussion.
This week's parsha is Korach. The question: what motivates someone to be Torah observant. Why does one follow Torah, observe mitzvot, and identify with an Orthodox or Jewish lifestyle? There are many possibilities. This dvar Torah, The Motivation of Torah, will present some, and more importantly, offer itself as a starting point for thinking about this.
