Naso – Count

This week’s Torah Reading is called Naso – Count. We will also celebrate Shavuous, the giving of the Torah (10 Commandments) on Mt. Sinai this week.

In the Torah Reading we have the portion where the Al-mighty tells Moshe to speak to Aaron and have him bless the Jewish Nation. The blessings are used to this very day by the Kohaneem.

“May the Al-mighty bless you and safeguard you. May the Al-mighty illuminate His countenance for you and be gracious to you. May the Al-mighty lift His countenance to you and establish peace for you.”

It is very interesting to note that after all the blessings it ends with the blessing to establish peace. Indeed, one may have prosperity, health, food and drink but if there is no peace it is all worthless. Therefore, the blessings are sealed with the gift of peace.

May we indeed celebrate the Shavuous, the Giving of The Torah, followed by true peace with the redemption and ultimate building of the 3rd Holy Temple.
