Parsha Korach- A class from the Bat Midrash -6/7/21

One thing that I learned early on in school is not to pick a fight with someone bigger than me. Yet, Korach did just that, picking a fight with Moshe and Aharon.

Korach who was one of the 4 bearers of the Ark of covenant and one of the wealthiest men of the Israelites argues that he and everyone on the community is equal, there by negative the authority of Moshe. 

What was his reason for this? Kabbalah and Chassidut explain the Korach saw the potential of Gevurah and the material world being ultimately more superior to the side of Chesed and spiritual.  Korach foresaw that redemption is associated with he elevation of the lower world. Yet he went too far and did not have the humility of acceptance of the authority of Moshe and G-d and the subservience of the "left to the right side", Levites to Kohanim.
