Vayetze: Chapter 33

"Blessings are upon the head of the righteous"


Rabbi Shimon explains the verse "Blessings are upon the head of the righteous." When blessings flow into this world, they emanate from those people who read Torah and keep God's commandments.


The truly righteous souls in our world uphold and sustain its existence. Their souls are worth far more than the souls of millions of wicked human beings. The deeds of the few outweigh the abundance of negative deeds performed by the multitudes. From the Light in this section, we gain the power of the righteous to help to counter any negative deeds that we have committed.
