Beha'alotcha 5773

When Bnei Yisroel complain to Hashem for food, they say they remember how they ate "free fish in Egypt" (11:5). But how is that possible when they didn't even get straw for free? Rashi answers that they meant that they remember when they were free from mitzvos. Bnei Yisroel were mistaken in that regard. They had to understand that Torah and mitzvos are lehavdil like learning to play piano. You need a rule book in order to play well and to develop your own pieces of music (in this case that would be chiddushei Torah).
