VaYakhel 5774 (Clip) – The Humility of Betzalel and Oholiav

VaYakhel – The Humility of Betzalel and Oholiav – Speaker: Rabbi Nasan Maimon. Based on Likutey Halakhos, Orach Chaim 3, Hilkhos Shabbos 3.
Betzalel and Oholiav merited to be Moshe Rabbeinu’s “two hands” because each was skilled yet humble (Shemos/Exodus 36:1-2).
01:03 – Man is on a higher level of intellect than animals are, but if he’s truly wise, he allows himself to be led, like a beheyma, (BaH MaH) by HaShem. When he makes his intellect subservient to the Torah, a person becomes worthy of HaShem’s rescue (Chulin 5). “And I am the simplest person, like an animal…” (Tehillim/Psalms 73). HaShem rewarded this quality of subservience in Betzalel and Oholiav by entrusting them with creating the vessels of the mishkan.
04:31 – The importance of praying for guidance and leadership.
