ViZos HaBracha – And This is the Blessing

This final portion is read on the Yom Tov of Simchas Torah.  We dance and celebrate the conclusion of the reading of the Torah. To focus on the positive side, it is easily understood why we would dance.  We are being blessed by the Leader of the Jewish Nation, Moshe.  It is impossible not to get excited and want to dance.  We are also celebrating the conclusion of the special gift the Al-mighty gave to His children, the Jewish Nation, which is the Torah.

The fact that we are so happy and excited about the Torah, dancing and singing, shows in a certain way our love for the Al-mighty.  After the events of the entire month of Tishrei, beginning with the New Year and including our Teshuva, repentance, on Yom Kippur, we celebrate the miracle of the Al-mighty protecting us in the desert for 40 years with the holiday of Succos.  This leads to our dancing with complete faith and joy on Simchas Torah as we read the blessings and the final section in the Torah.

We hope that our joy will carry over to the ultimate redemption and the building of the 3rd Temple.
