There was a famous song by the Police -“Dont Stand So Close to Me.” Wrong. The Talmud in Yoma 21 a says there was a miracle in the Temple. Despite being so crowded during the holidays, there was room for everyone to bow down. Rashi says something even greater. Despite the crowd there was room so no one heard the confession of the next person when he bowed down. The person giving the shiur said that someone once said all miracles in the Torah can be explained within the context of the natural world So what is the explanation for the enlargement of the Temple to allow for all these people to bow down?
The answer is RESPECT. Each was careful to respect the other and allowed the person allowed the other to bow and then respected his privacy to make his confession. There was a respect for the other that dominated.
Rather than ask about why the terrible tragdy in Meron occurred. Lets us re-invigorate and commit to respect each other.
