Sharing In Your Simcha
When one makes a Simcha,
Hashem brings his deceased parents there to join in as the Zohar
tells us even though one’s parents are deceased, Hashem uproots them from Gan
Eden and brings them to the Simcha. The Midrash Pinchas relates the following
story: when R’ Pinchas Koritzer made a wedding in which many people attended,
no damage occurred- not even a small plate broke. This was to everyone’s
amazement. R’ Pinchas Koritzer explained it was because of the deceased who
were on guard.
This is also shown to us in
the Midrash Rabba quoted by the לבושי מכלול that says that Dovid
came to the inauguration of the Beis Hamikdash (which was after his death). In
this way, we can grasp אשר ישנו...איננו פה עמנו היום;
I seal this covenant and oath with whoever is standing with us today before
Hashem and with whoever is not here with us today. This also refers to the
deceased of previous generations as they are also there as they come to receive
pleasure from their descendants.
R’ Alt merited to learn under the tutelage of R’ Mordechai Friedlander Ztz”l for close to five years. He received Semicha from R’ Zalman Nechemia Goldberg. R’ Alt has written on numerous topics for various websites and publications. He lives with his wife and family in a suburb of Yerushalayim where he studies, writes and teaches. The author is passionate about teaching Jews of all levels of observance.
