Naso – Count

This week’s Torah Reading Naso – Count, comes after the Yom Tov of Shavuous, when the 10 Commandments were given on Mt. Sinai.

In Bameedbar we stressed the importance of keeping the positive commandments to survive in a desert. This portion can perhaps elude to the keeping of the negative commandments as well. By fulfilling both the positive and negative commandments this leads to the final temple being built.

The words Naso Et-Rosh, to count the head has also numerical values. Naso is combined of Nun, which is 50, Sin, which is 300, and Aleph which is 1. This gives us a total of 351. It should be noted that the literal translation of Naso is lift, symbolical of lifting and rising in height.

In gematriot you can take the total value of each letter or the simple, unit value of each letter. Thus the full value of Nun for example is 50 the simple value is 5. In the remaining words Et-Rosh the Aleph is 1, the Tof is 4, for a total of 5. The Raish in Rosh is 2, the Aleph again is 1, and the Shin is 3 for a total of 6. This gives us a total of 11. You add this to the total for Naso which is 351 and you now have a total of 362. Now watch this closely, you take the total of 3 from the 3 letters in the word Naso, Nun, Sin, Aleph and and add that to the 362 and you have 365. (Note you can also take the 3 words, Naso, Et, and Rosh). The 365 refer to the total of Negative Commandments in the Torah. To be uplifted, Naso, one needs to abstain from the 365 Negative Commandments. This will in turn, bring about the 3rd Holy Temple and their Holy vessels. May we soon experience this special event.
