    PACHIM KETANIM FROM RABBI YUDIN—In Honor of Parshat Metzora and Shabbat Hagadol

    The opening verse of the parsha (14:2), which describes the purification of the one afflicted with tzara'as - leprosy, teaches "vehuva el haKohen" - he should be brought to the Kohen. Rav Yeruchum Levovitz z"tl, the mashgiach of the Mir Yeshiva, notes the contrast between the metzorah and the Nazir - the nazirite - regard- ing whom, in conjunction with his purification in Parshas Naso (6:13), the Torah says "yavi oso" and Rashi teaches, he brings himself. Regarding the metzorah, who too often was a follower of the wrong crowd, with whom he spoke lashon hara, he needs to "switch gears" - change his crowd, and agree to be brought for the purification process that ultimately will lead him to his new noble way of life. This is in contrast to the Nazir who has the strength of character, knows that he wants to grow spiritually, and therefore brings himself even if there are no others to support him. The Korban Pesach was brought b'chaburah - in a group; we too must be especially careful to be with an uplifting chaburah.
