“In this week’s parsha, Hashem commands Moshe to appoint a successor to lead the Jewish people:
G-d know[s] better than any human that no two people on this planet are exactly the same. Every person thinks differently, acts differently and reacts differently than every other person. Therefore [He] appoint[s] a leader who will have patience with and be able to tolerate each person according [to] the needs of that person’s individual personality.
A true leader should serve in the Image of the ‘G-d of the spirits of all flesh,’ someone who appreciates, can live with, and work with all individuals, people with totally disparate spirits, interests, and personalities.”
