This week, in the last moments of the Torah, we read of the last breath of Moses.
Moses was a hundred and twenty years old when he died; his eyes were undimmed and his vigor unabated. And the Israelites bewailed Moses in the plains of Moab for thirty days. So the days of weeping and mourning for Moses ended.
Even our greatest leader’s journey of life comes to an end. Traditions that began with Moses, such as the period of Shloshim, continue until this day. His death is a beautiful one, indeed, a celebration of his incredible life.
We wish you all a wonderful holiday and Shabbat!
