Weekly Torah Portion - Devorim - Words

In this weeks Parsha, Moshe Rabbainu criticizes the Children of Israel, Rash”i brings from Our Sages OBM that just as Father Yaakov (Jacob) and the Prophet Shmuel (Samuel), Moshe Rabbainu saved all his criticism until he was about to die (Rashi mentions 4 reasons for this), in Hebrew the words for near death are סמוך למיתה, the word “to death” can be rearranged to spell תהלים – Tehilim – Psalms – which as we know has the numerical value of Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman – the root of all song. This is in congruence with what Rabbainu revealed in Likutay Moharan (vol. 2, Torah 8) that the only productive way of criticism is with the Song that is Single, Double, Triple, and Quadruple, this is the meaning of giving rebuke with the approach of death, meaning with the approach of Tehilim!

There is another deep concept here, as someone pointed out to me, Rabbainu it the 4th teaching uses the word death to represent the confession of ones faults to The Tzadik. Here The Tzadik, Moshe Rabbainu is dying and he enumerates their sins – something to think about.

Great blessings of Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman!
