MESSAGE FROM RABBI LOEWY:

 Parshas: Chukas

Parshas Chukas opens with the laws of the red heifer, the quintessential decree without any stated reason. The Sefer HaChinuch who provides a reason and background for every commandment says he will not even try to explain the red heifer for if the wise King Solomon could not explain it who can? Rav Yaakov Kamenetsky zt”l says it is important for the red heifer to remain without any reason to teach us a lesson about our approach to the mitzvos. Our knee-jerk reaction when learning about a mitzvah should be “I want to do it because Hashem commanded me to do so”. The commandment does not need to make sense or seem logical to my intellect in order for me to do it. The only thing that should matter is G-d wants me to do this. This is why the verse states when introducing the laws of the red heifer “zos chukas hatorah” this is the “decree of the Torah” as opposed to the “decree of purity” because the whole Torah must be kept with the attitude and mindset of the red heifer that we observe G-d’s word regardless of whether we understand the mitzvah or not.
