How to Curse Your Enemy, Parashat Balak
Throughout the holy Scriptures we see that words have power. Parashat Balak provides an illustrative example of that power. Hired by King Balak to curse Israel, the prophet Balaam instead spoke blessings over God’s people. Just as the LORD turned King Balak’s curse into a blessing, the LORD often takes a curse and turns it into a blessing for those who love him. In How to Curse Your Enemy, First Fruits of Zion Education Director, D. Thomas Lancaster, recounts the unique nature of Shabbat Balak in the year 2015 when a particular curse was turned into a blessing.
