Parsha Jitro 5770 - Cheider

We find that Jitsro started his relationship with the Jewish people when he invited Moshe rabenu for some food
We find something interesting in this weeks parsha.

יב   וַיִּקַּח יִתְרוֹ חֹתֵן מֹשֶׁה, עֹלָה וּזְבָחִים--לֵאלֹקים; וַיָּבֹא אַהֲרֹן וְכֹל זִקְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, לֶאֱכָל-לֶחֶם עִם-חֹתֵן מֹשֶׁה--לִפְנֵי הָאֱלֹקים

 12 And Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, took a burnt-offering and sacrifices for God; and Aaron came, and all the elders of Israel , to eat bread with Moses' father-in-law before God.

The Or Hachaim makes here a remark.
He says it appears that Yisro did not invite the people to come, they just came by themselves.

Why is that?
The answer is, he says, that Yisro brought a lot of korbonos (sacrifices) so people understood that they were welcome because there was so much meat which all had to be eaten.

We see overhere the tremendous nedivus lev (giving spirit) of Yitro. What started with a little meal for one person turns now into hospitality towards a lot of people.

There is something else as well:
Rashi says in posuk 5: that Yisro lived in great honour but his heart made him go to hear Tora in the desert.

We see that the nedivus lev of Yisro was complete. It touched on his rotson (will) to learn tora but also on the way he treated other people. He strived for shelemus and got it!
