Rabbi Benzion Klatzko releases his third Sephari Nigun, Ben Porat Yosef. The Sephard equivalent to “Bli Ayin Horah” the Klatzko family flavors this lively upbeat song to reflect the holy and beautiful sephardic tradition.
Rabbi Eliyahu Dessler ( a twentieth century Rabbi, Talmudic scholar and philosopher) asked his father in a letter how such a system can be fair, whereby people suffer because of the jealousies of another (Ayin Hara is believed to be the evil eye of a jealous person that causes evil to befall a person). His father answered him that the person who has the possessions that others have looked on with jealousy was careless and flaunted his possession causing jealousy to arise. This jealousy causes the other to cry out in pain and his cry rises up to the Heavenly Court.
The powerful lesson to be learnt from this correspondence is that we must employ sensitivity and be careful not to flaunt what we have. It is only human to want what others have and to even suffer pain due to them flaunting what they have. One of the Ten Commandments is not to covet but human-beings are not angels, we are works in progress and we should be striving not to make life more difficult for others. One who does make life painful for others is therefore punished according to Divine Justice.
