In describing the tzaraat that afflicted the home, the Torah says: “When you come to the land of Canaan, which I am giving you as a possession, and I place an affliction of tzaraat upon a house in the land of your possession.”

The Midrash teaches that from the words of the verse we learn that G‑d Himself placed the affliction of tzaraat on the house, so it was in fact a blessing. For when the Israelites removed the afflicted stones from their homes, they discovered treasures that the native Canaanites had hidden within the walls.

We explore the paradox of finding treasure hidden behind the afflicted stones on one’s heart…

And reflect on the choice one must make between a poisonous fruit or one that heals.
