Korah (korach, קורח) was the name of a prominent Levite. It is also the name of the thirty-eighth reading from the Torah. It comes from the first verse of this week’s reading, which says, “Now Korah the son of Izhar... took action” (Numbers 16:1).

A proverb says, "Woe to the wicked, and woe to his neighbor." This applies to Dathan and Abiram, the neighbors of Korah. Dathan and Abiram were neighbors with a contentious man. That is why they were punished with him and were swept from the world. (Numbers Rabbah 17:5)

Contention against leadership is contagious, and contentious people work hard to convince their companions to join their cause.
