Storyboard Text

  • שלום! I am the מלך ישראל and this is my right-hand man, the נביא. 
  • I am the נביא, directed by 'ה to be the personal advisor and מוכיח for the King.
  • In Jewish history, every King had a Navi at his side: Shaoul had Shmuel, David had Natan, Achav had Eliyahu, and more. According to R' Yosef Dov HaLevi Soloveichik, history demonstrates that a King in particular--a person of great stature and honor--needs someone to watch and rebuke him when necessary,
  • My job is to give over my תוכחה with the sensitivity and respect that the King deserves, as befitting my role as a חוזה. Anyone can be a רואה and give rebuke according to what he thinks is right, but my words are said בשם 'ה and come straight from G-d, and thus the King accepts it differently.
