Hidden Treasure

We Jews are the hidden treasures of the world. G-d is always there to protect us. G-d always has our backs. G-d’s word is always true.

Numbers 23:10 “Who can count the dust of Jacob?”

Our sages explain “Balaam arrived in Moab. Balak proceeded to take Balaam to a place he thought would be conducive to cursing the Jews. But G‑d forced Balaam to praise and bless the Jews rather than curse them.

The Rebbe explains “The Jewish people are here compared (positively) to dust. Just as there are hidden treasures buried in the earth, so are there treasures of pure faith in G‑d and deep love and fear of Him hidden in every Jew. These treasures may at times be hard to uncover, just as the treasures buried in the earth are often buried deep below the surface. But they are there, nonetheless, and with sufficient effort they can be revealed.1
