From Rabbi Stein

rabbistein150

This week, as we continue the cycle of Torah readings, we reach the end of the book of Numbers.  This means that we have read to the climactic point in the narrative: the Israelites are poised just across from the Promised Land. 

The fifth and final book of Torah, which we will read in coming weeks, is primarily a review of our history and the expectations that are on us as we prepare to enter the land.  Only at the very end of the book do we read the last piece of the narrative.  Moses passes the mantle of leadership to Joshua and then dies. 

After we read the final words of Numbers this Shabbat, we will recite the traditional blessing, “Chazak, Chazak, venitchazek!”  “Strength, Strength, may we be strengthened!”

We pray that we will be blessed with strength and the opportunity to continue on in our study of Torah.  We pray that we will remember the experience of our ancestors, and we will be blessed with the strength to continue in pursuit of our own Promised Land.  It is a powerful and important image, that there is not only a physical place but a spiritual realm in our future…a place where we will experience fulfillment and satisfaction, a place where God’s vision of a world that is whole and at peace will become a reality.

Torah, even in its technical sections, urges us to remember and honor the covenantal relationship that we have with our Creator.  May our study of these sacred texts do honor to this vision.

Shabbat Shalom!

Rabbi Peter Stein
