Pinchas: Chapter 89

He that treats lightly bread crumbs


Rabbi Shimon says that anyone who throws bread on the ground will be assured of poverty, for only God has dominion over the five kinds of grain.

[Verse 600] Moses leads the discussion into the foolishness of those who treat lightly the crumbs of the Torah - the secrets in the crowns of the letters. As these unwise people will perish, so will those who transmit secrets of the Torah and Kabbalah to people who are dishonest or who have an evil inclination.
