This Weeks Torah Portion - Parshas Neetzuvim (Standing)

The Parsha starts -אתם נצבים היום כולכם לפני ה' אלהיכם ראשיכם שבטיכם זקניכם כל איש ישראל Attem Neetzuvim Hayom Koolchem - You are all standing today before Hashem Your G-d, your heads of the tribes your elders etc.. This is a major historical event, the Jews making a covenant with God. The first four letters have the gimatria, numerical value of Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman!

The acronym of the first letters (if we put the כ and ל together to make a נ), spell out the words אנה אני - where am I? - these are the words that Reuvain said when he went to save Yosef and saw that he was too late. There is a verse in the morning prayer of Shachris, אל נקמות ה' אל נקמות הופיע, the Arizal revealed that one should have in mind, when saying these words, that their acronym is אני אנה, to rectify the sin of the selling of Yosef. This is the rectification of accepting the leadership of the true Tzadik, Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman.

The word אלהיכם (your God) has the numerical value of אב"י הנח"ל the title of the book of letters that Saba Yisroel wrote to the president of Israel, Zalman Shazar, an aspect of a leader of Israel, the acronym of the three words that come next, ראשיכם שבטיכם זקניכם, spell out Shazar.

This is a book in which Saba sets a covenant of love and faith between himself and Shazar and all of Israel.

The first verses of this Parsha delineate 10 distinct groups in Israel, from the heads to the water carriers, these correspond to the ten types of song that are included in the song that is single, double, triple, quadruple (= 10), Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman!
