Most of us have seen pictures of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, touted as a marvelous architectural wonder for many ages. But I can't help but snicker when I see it. Yes, indeed it has interesting architectural features and form. But why give it such a heightened status when all of us can see that it is leaning. I know, the name says it all. But I know I would be far more impressed if it didn't lean. To me, it is a glaring reminder that the engineers did not survey the ground and become familiar with the territory, or seek to utilize their engineering skills to erect a structure that would represent their talents. Not only is it an accident waiting to happen, but it has been the source of a great amount of effort and money to right the structure and keep the public safe. This glorification of a botched attempt can be lethal not only in the physical realm but in the spiritual realm. If we deceive ourselves in the ways of keeping Torah, we risk building in vain and put others in jeopardy. In this week's parasha, we are given the guarantee that if we follow in the ways of our Creator, the Divine Engineer, then that which we will build will be upright and everlasting and blessings of the land and fruitfulness will be with us.
