The importance of the Nanach swipe

Sometimes a person is unable to speak, in such circumastances he must use his hands to sign Nanach with the Nanach swipe. This is something that can be learned from Likutay Halachos (Choshen Mishpat, the laws of collecting debts from orphans 3:9) Rabbi Nussun explains that this was the case in the war Moshe and Yehoshua led against Amalaik Y"S who brought an overwhelming contamination which prevented Moshe Rabbainu from being able to express himself verbally and explain to the Israelites they must subject their hearts to G-d, thus he was left with the only alternative to raise his hands to Hashem so that the Israelites should follow suit.

Why did he bring his hands down? Moses was not influenced by the contamination...he was 80+ but strong as 20yrs...don't tell me he would have let one jew die because he was tired...


The na nach swipe turns guns (nuns) into chai or life! That's the na nach swipe!

So Rabbi Nathan is right of course about raising the hands- I challenge you to answer the second part. And I thank you for rabbi Nathan's super important chidddush which I was not aware of.
