Understanding the Death of Young People

This past week's parsha, Parshas Shemini, discussed the death of Aharon's two sons, Nadav and Avihu.

I am posting two links on the topic of "Why do good people die young?"
Especially in light of the terrible tragedy in Itamar - yes, we have so many questions and are seeking answers. They are long posts, but the time you spend reading them is time well spent.

Part 1 explains how Hashem is so much greater than us, so beyond our understanding that as much as we know, we cannot understand.

Part 2 discusses more in detail why good people die young and why to them, they do not view it as something bad but as something part of the bigger picture.

I hope you gain as much from these as I did when I read them.


  1. devoiry you are sooo amaizing!!i just cant get over how you think of everything under the planet to inspire people!! what a great question esp. now... and its sooo sweet of you to set up the link straight to the place where they could find it!!!!!
    what a gift you sre to the world!!! look how n=many people checked this out...bec you are osooo full of emes!!! may this web site really spread all over and save many neshamos thst want to get closer to their most loving father in heaven..and may all these incredible ideas be used to bring mashiach closer and closer in a very loving way full of rachamim!!!!!

  2. I'm glad you explained it that way...that we don't understand why things happen. I can accept that. Hashem does things, and we can't always understand why.
    I have a harder time accepting when people think they DO understand and they know the reasons.

  3. Yup, I know who you are :-) Thanks so much! B"h the inspiration is spreading...

    MW-Thanks. It's true that we can't always understand but that shouldn't stop us from asking!


You made it to the end of this post! What do you think about it?
