Weekly Torah Portion - Korach

Previously we pointed out how this weeks Parsha is very prevalent to Breslov, as the opposers continue to deny the leadership of Rabbainu, the soul of Moshe Rabbainu, just like Korach.

Rashi at the beginning of the Parsha points out that this Parsha is beautifully interpreted in the exegesis of Rabbi Tanchuma. This is kind of strange for Rashi to do, for Rashi comes to explain the simple understanding of the Torah, and whenever he sees a necessity to explain or provide an exegesis he does so without fanfare, so why over here does he give this introduction and point of reference? This is an unbelievable allusion to the issue at hand. Tanchuma, is a name based on the same root as Nachman! Tanchuma (with the word) has the gimatria, numerical value, as Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman (with the letters)! Thus Rashi, with Divine Inspiration, is alluding that this chapter will be fully developed with Rabbainu.
