Vaeschanan – And I Pleaded

This week’s Torah Reading is called Vaeschanan – And I Pleaded. This week also has the historical event of the destruction of the Holy Temple on the 9th of Av, this year on Tuesday. This Shabbos is also referred to as Shabbos Nachamu, the Shabbos of Comforting – the destruction and loss of the Holy Temple.

In the Torah portion we read, we find that Moshe took the opportunity to fulfill one further deed. He set up 3 cities on the east side of the Jordan which they now possessed to be cities of refuge. (No not for illegal immigrants but for those that accidentally killed someone).

Moshe’s actions are a lesson to us. He finished his words of rebuke and his words of encouragement to the Jewish Nation. When he finished he then quickly performed this special deed of setting aside the 3 cities.

We need to constantly look to do mitzvos. Even after we have completed one important task or mitzvah we should be looking to fulfill another one. This we learn from our leader and teacher Moshe Rabbeinu.

May we merit to fulfill our mitzvos in a very positive way and ultimately bring Mosheach, the 3rd Temple and Moshe Rabbeinu in our midst.
