We are all blind to something. Some of us are blind when it comes to our families, some when it comes to money matters, and others when it comes to God.
We all have blind spots.
The confluence of our Torah reading (Parshat Acharei Mot-Kedoshim), Pesach Sheini, and Lag B’Omer, teaches us an invaluable lesson about the human condition – how we are all meant to be the eyes for others’ blind spots. And never to place obstacles – even ones we believe are “beneficial” – in front of the blind spots of our fellow human beings.
A beautiful and eye-opening story about a blind boy miraculously cured at the gravesite of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai, teaches us what it truly means to be a Zohar, a shining splendor illuminating the entire world.
This is what it means to be Kedoshim – holy because God, our Lord, is holy.
