Message of the Earth

The fate of Korach and his followers is described in this Torah portion as follows: “And the earth opened her mouth and swallowed them …” (16:32).

This is the message of the earth, its speech for all time. Korach is the vehicle by which this lesson is expresssed. He rebelled against the authority of Moshe Rabenu, zs'l, and the truth of Torah, and his punishment brings this mistake to light, proving that Moshe and the Torah can never be denied.
The mouth of the earth swallows whole those who deny G-d's word.
This is the message of the earth.

Another large hole suddenly appeared in Bnei Brak on Rechov Kook 44.

Less than 3 months ago, three children and one adult were wounded in Bnei Brak when a large hole suddenly appeared in the middle of the sidewalk. The four fell into the four-meter hole in the center of the sidewalk along Saadia Gaon Street and were lightly injured. The three children suffered scrapes and bruises, while the adult may have broken a bone.

It is not clear if the hole is connected to a series of minor earthquakes that occurred in recent weeks.
