Method of Pursuing Peace
I understand that Aaharon the brother of Moshe Rabeinu in a famous story lied for the sake of Shalom, to bring togather two brothers quarraling. This seems unethical to me. Couldnt he use language rather than deceit and masquerade? Were the common Yiddin back in the desert at that time too wrapped up in their nomadic survival struggles to hear someone say: “Golly I almost feel like lying to bring you togather, cant you see that you are brothers, faced with wandering the dusty desert, why am I even THINKING of resorting to a rediculous scheme like that! Hear me out, and see through a moments escalation of drama to the truth of your love for eachother. Because truth has a way of winning out in the end without the need for deceit. Maybe they were having a fight that warranted them not speaking to eachother. Maybe they were both keenly aware of their melodrama? Maybe they thought it wasnt time to repatch things up? What is the lesson here? Not to trust your own self? To meddle in between people to try to match them up against their own will? To sneak and connive something as holy as Emes?
