Parashat Acharei: Can I Love G-d Too Much?

In an age where nothing seems more necessary than greater spirituality and closeness to G-d, it seems almost absurd for there to be something wrong with trying to become too close to Him. Nevertheless, the Torah gives us many examples of cases where too great of a religious enthusiasm led to ruin. For example, we learn in this parsha that on the day of the inauguration of the Mishkan, two sons of Aaron brought an unsolicited sacrifice into the Holy of Holies, and they lost their lives as a result. In this lesson we will explore Aaron’s love of G-d and find out how through our relationship with a spiritual mentor each of us can determine the appropriate measure of closeness and respectful distance that we should seek in our own relationship with HaShem.
