An inconvenient voice

Parshat Korah (Numbers 16:1-18:32)

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/torah_portion/article/an_inconvenient_voice_20070615

It is too easy to label Korah evil and dismiss his claims. There is nothing in the pshat, the simple reading of the biblical text, to castigate Korah as the embodiment of evil. In fact, it is suspicious how ready everyone is to get rid of him. What are we covering up? What truth does Korah know?
