In the Name of Korach (audio)

Here is this morning's post-Shachris shiur. The Rebbe spoke about the multiple meanings of the word "Korach" (ice, tearing away and bald), how these concepts helped shape Korach's argument and their connotations for us in our avodas Hashem. Towards the end of the shiur the Rebbe spoke about Korach's position that if everyone in Klal Yisroel is holy, we shouldn't need leaders or tzadikim. Of course, each and every one of us is holy and special in Hashem's eyes. Yes, we can reach lofty heights and attain intense closeness with Hashem. But the flow comes to us through (or in the merit of) our leaders. Moshe Rabeinu was the head, the pathway and pipeline for Klal Yisroel and Korach's own elevated holy state.
