Divrei Yechezkail Teumim: Bo

The 3rd of Shevat is the Yahrtzeit of Rav Yechezkel Shraga Frankel-Teumim (1885). The son of Rav Yehoshua Heshel and grandson of Rav Baruch (the Baruch Taam), Rav Yechezkel Shraga was a close of chassid of his uncle, the Divrei Chaim of Sanz. He was appointed Rav of Klasna-Vielitshke, two towns which were located close to each other. His thoughts on Chumash and halacha are written in the sefer Divrei Yechezkel. He was succeeded by his son-in-law, Rav Shmuel Shmelke Azriel Frankel-Teumim.

“In order that you will tell the story in the ears of your children and grandchildren so that they will know that I am God.” The verse says, “Train the youth according to his way.” (Proverbs 22:6) We can also read the verse that a “Father shall train the child according to the father’s way,” meaning, everything we teach our children must be consistent with the way we live.

The verse here is teaching Israel that they can only tell the stories of the Exodus if they live in such a way that they “Know that I am God.” Otherwise the stories, will seem false, and will fall on deaf ears. (Divrei Yechezkail)
