Dvar Torah

While telling us of the 12 children-nations that Nachor (brother of Avraham) bore, the Torah says “And Besuel fathered Rivkah.” [Bereishis 22:23]

Rashi comments: “These yichusin were written only for this posuk,” (ie. all 12 of these nations were worth bringing into the world just for Rivkah).

What is this supposed to teach us?

Our gemara teaches us that “in “future times” even the barren trees will bear fruit.”

Also cryptic.

Rav Moshe zt”l explains that there is something called Adam Hashalem- a person who is complete with the Torah. The entire creation, from the time of Adam Harishon until the moment that this person comes into the world, is there for him. All of the food that’s produced, all the clothes that are sewn, all of the homes that are built, throughout all of history, are there for him to have a life and a world to exist in. This is similar to a Sefer Torah, says R’ Moshe, where the holy words of the Torah are mekadesh the ink and the parchment of the scroll.


This is what the gemara means: In “future times” there will be a great increase not only in the numbers of lomdei Torah but also in chochmas haTorah. In those times, there will necessarily be an increase in gashmius as well, in order for there to be more “material” for the great ruchnius of that time to make use of!  

Even the trees which are now barren, will need to bear fruit!
And Rivkahs tzidkus was so great that when she was born there had to be 12 nations born correspondingly.

“All these yichusin were only written for this posuk.”
 
Rav Shteinman was once meeting with a group of gevirim to encourage them to donate to yeshivos.

He told them- “when I was young, there was a fraction of the number of wealthy yidden that we have today. Why do you think that is? Why would Hashem give out so much more money now than 75 years ago?”

“The answer is simple. Because when I was young, there was a fraction of the lomdei Torah that we have today...”
 
Have a great Shabbos
