Struggle for Torah

Shavua Tov. There is a Pasuk that is very popular to analyze by way of exegesis from today's Parsha. In reference to the Red Heifer and the impurity of having come in contact with the dead, we are also taught the rule about "אהל", literally meaning "tent". The law is that this impurity is also transmitted by being under the same roof with a corpse. This is the reason why hospitals in Jerusalem have a warning sign for Kohanim not to enter until a deceased person is removed from the building. The text reads: זאת התורה אדם כי ימות באהל. The translation would be: " This is the teaching regarding a man who would die in a tent." The hidden message would be to paraphrase the verse and say, "This is the nature of Torah. A person needs to die for it." This is used to encourage students that in order for Torah to be absorbed, one must be prepared to die for it. This means that the fruits of learning Torah comes when one struggles for it.
