Charming And Sweet

"The Jews encamped [vayichan Yisrael] opposite the mountain" - Rashi says "like one man with one heart" [Shmos 19/2]. Chassidus explains that the word "vayichan" can also mean "charming" [from the word "chein"]. The Jews were CHARMING in each others eyes and that engendered unity.

The gematria of Yisrael plus five for its five letters, equals matok - 546 [Be'er Moshe]. Jews are charming AND sweet.

The service of this Shabbos is to appreciate the charm and sweetness that inheres within each and every Jew.
