carucciBy Benedetto Carucci Viterbi*

When Aaron, the High Priest and main actor in the inauguration of the Tabernacle, sees that the presence of God does not descend upon it, he exclusively blames himself. This is an exceptional quality, rabbi Yerucham Levi of Mir comments, in a world of people who, whatever happens, tend to blame others.
