It is said that Moses’ brother Aaron was an outstanding mediator who could make peace between angry neighbors and quarrelsome spouses. This made him greatly beloved by the Israelites, and it is the reason for his selection as High Priest, the Mediator between God and Israel. To make peace is to forge a state of harmony where there were formerly contradictions and disturbances. But ‘peace’, which in Hebrew is ‘shalom’, means more than just the absence of discord. Shalom represents everything positive that is good for the soul’s evolution.
