 Parshas: Ki Sisa

After the unfortunate sin of the golden calf, G-d said to Moshe "I have seen this people, and behold it is a stiff- necked people". In this verse, it seems as if being stiff necked is an attribute which should be avoided and not one G-d is pleased with. If we think about our past history, this attribute has assisted our nation in remaining firm and steadfast in our ways and not becoming tempted by the ways of the Gentiles. What exactly did not please G-d with the nation's stiff - neck approach? Rav Moshe Feinstein zt"l explains that G-d does not want us to do mitzvos with a stiff - neck, stubborn attitude. Mitzvos must be done with happiness, joy, and enthusiasm. The only way our beautiful tradition will be passed down to the next generation is if our children and grandchildren see us doing mitzvos with a smile and with intense joy. If they see our attitude towards mitzvos is that it's a pain and a burden they will not want to carry on the tradition. This is what worried G-d with having such an attitude. If our children see that going to shul and praying is a burden and hopefully avoidable unless the rabbi calls me to be the tenth where will they learn the beauty and joy of prayer? We must be careful to carry out all the mitzvos with a smile demonstrating how beautiful this tradition is to our children. In this merit, Hashem will bless us with much nachas from all our families!
