Chasam Sofer On This Weeks Parsha- Parshas Bereishis

לכבוד יום השנה של החתם סופר זצוק"ל כ"ה תשרי
born, Sep.24,1762- niftar, Oct. 3, 1839 

Rashi explains the first Pasuk ,בראשית [הכל] ברא  
We translate the Pasuk  as if the word הכל was placed between בראשית and ברא.
The Chasam Sofer  asks if the word הכל needs to be there so  why is it missing. The Chasam Sofer answers it is to honour the Bnei Yisroel.

The Gemoro* says that Bnei Yisroel are greater than the Malochim.
The Malochim may not verbalize Hashem's name
until they say three words 'קדוש קדוש קדוש ה'

Whereas the Bnei Yisroel may say Hashems name
 after two words 'שמע ישראל ה'     .

The Ch. S. connects the last Pasuk in Devarim
לעיני כל  ישראל  “ to בראשית ברא אלוקים
In honour of  the Bnei Yisroel the הכל is missing and  we have only  two words before the word אלוקים

On the other hand, in heaven for the Malochim there it says, בראשית הכל ברא. 

They need three words before the word אלוקים.

My father** ע"ה  added to the Ch. S. connecting the last Pasuk in Kesuvim we read.  We end  the Koheles  with the Pasuk
סוף דבר הכל נשמע את האלהים ירא- כי זה כל האדם    
The הכל is only heard (understood) and not seen because the Torah was given to G-d fearing humans (Bnei Yisroel) 
 הכל בידי שמים חוץ מיראת שמים  

The word הכל is in heaven (Malochim)
חוץ , it’s outside of our Torah
Miyras Shomayim because of the G-d fearing
(Bnei Yisroel) for their honour .

  1. No offense intended, but I cannot believe that angels have a different Toran than Jews do, because there cannot be more than one version of the Torah. Sorry about that.

    If you want the truth about Israel
    and the Middle East, then do not waste
    your time with the FAKE NEWS
    of The New York Times and the
    Israel-bashing mainstream-news-media.
