Although sometimes we want revenge on that one who has done us harm, the person needs to stop for a moment and realize that true heroism is neither revenge nor retaliation.



The Admor Rabbi Josiah Pinto, explained this matter at length and brought an act that was with Avraham Hagar: Caution or of the work of virtue in ignorance.



"" The whole matter of neither getting up nor dismissing is a Dauriyta offense.

"And some people fall into this grave and severe sin. 'Streams of water have gone down my eyes because they have not kept your Torah,'" Rabbi Pinto wrote.



The Rebbe added that “the nature of man after his friend has harmed or harmed him, to give back to man.

And people think that whoever does not repay his friend for what his friend has harmed or harmed him, it shows the weakness of the person.

But a serious mistake on the part of man, revenge and blasphemy is an art of weak people.

Strong people, spirituality and reverence for God control them and not impulses that push man to calm his conscience.



"" And the deed is known in Abraham Hagar, who was a great scholar.

And slowly adhered to the Torah of Israel and the people of Israel.

And in those days whoever was a convert, the Tsar would take him out to be killed in agony.

Abraham fled and clung to the way of Gd and converted.



"" The church persecuted him severely and sentenced him to death for treason.

"It is said that he secretly met our genius rabbi from Vilna, and the genius told him that he had the power to save him from his condition by practical acceptance if he wanted to, but Avraham Hagar did not agree, and so he hid in the synagogue for many days."

"One day, the son of a man who was tyrannical and rich hit and humiliated Avraham Hagar, and Avraham did not answer him a word, but already his father who was connected to Malchut went and handed over to Malchot. Avraham Hagar's execution caused a great shock to Israel, Ger Zedek who gives his life "On the sanctification of the name without any remorse, without any contemplation. Moments before the execution, the executioners saw Avraham laughing, calm and happy. Admired and asked him, you are on the gallows for a few more moments, you have no regrets, no fear, nothing."



"Abraham Hagar told them," Rabbi Pinto went on to say, "When I was a little boy my parents took me to the sea, where I dug pits, built towers, worked for many hours and bothered to enjoy there. And suddenly a group of cheeky boys came, "Now I am a little boy, I will grow up and have strength and I will come back and take revenge on the boys, for the crime that destroyed all my pits and towers."



"Years passed, I grew up and then I realized that everything was idle things, empty things that do not really exist. And now that I meet them, demand their well-being and the anger of childhood has passed him by. Avraham Hagar stood and told the soldiers about to execute him, same thing now, life and death seem great "But when we get to heaven, it seems like it's all like the towers I was small, that I built in the water by the sea."



Finally, Rabbi Pinto says: "Man loses his world on small accounts, goes through the most severe Torah prohibitions. And if we look, it seems that all the great wars and all the great destruction in the world, began on small accounts of small people."
