Ok so everyone is keen to point out why Korach is such a baddie in this week's parasha and don't get me wrong, I don't disagree. But Moshe is no saint either. He teaches us a valuable lesson in how NOT to listen, how NOT to hear something other than what is actually being said, and how NOT to respond, escalating things to boiling point (bit of cruel wordplay there). I love how the Torah's heroes are human, and how we can learn from their flaws as much as their strengths.
