I would like to share with some of our friends an insight that came to me at kabalas shabos.
[All remember the big argument last week] I was thinking it can't be, that there is no remez in the Tora that dyo is different than the klaf that has to be mutar bficha?!
Then a flash of thought came to me: Don't you remember the midrash raba [shir hashirim] on the pasuk:
- "קווצותיו תלתלים שחורות כעורב"
קווצותיו תלתלים זה סרגול [שירטוט השיטה] בספר תורה
שחורות כעורב זה הכתב
The midrash raba says that "black as a raven" represents the letters of the sefer tora. This is a nice remez that the letters are resembled to a nonkosher foul, they may come from a non-kosher source.
