Ha’azeenu – Give Ear

The Torah reading Ha’azeenu = “Give Ear” is the last weekly portion read on Shabbos. The final portion, Vizos Habracha – “This is the Blessing” is read on Shmeenee Atzeres – Simchas Torah. Ha’azeenu is also often read on Shabbos Shuva, the Shabbos before Yom Kippur, as is the case this year. It is a special song, which is recommended to learn by heart. (good for the businessman). It was sung by Moshe (look out American Idol), before the Jewish nation enter Israel and just before Moshe will pass away on Mt. Navo. Thus it was meant to have a powerful impact on the Jewish Nation.

In the Torah portion, towards the very end, we find the phrase “BiEtzem Hayom Hazeh” – “In The Middle Of The Day”. Moshe was told to go up Har Navo, the mountain he was to die on, in the middle of the day. This was done to show that when the Al-mighty decrees an event it cannot be stopped. The Jewish people were very tempted to try and stop Moshe from going up Har Navo and thus stop his death. The Al-mighty is showing this cannot be.

This phase “BiEtzem Hayom Hazeh” – “In The Middle Of The Day” we find two other times. This first time in in the story of Noach and the flood. Noach is instructed to enter the Ark “BiEtzem Hayom Hazeh” – “In The Middle Of The Day”.
The people tried to stop Noach but there is no stopping him once the Al-mighty has set things in motion.

The second time is when the Egyptians tried to stop the Jews from leaving Egypt again the phrase used is “BiEtzem Hayom Hazeh” – “In The Middle Of The Day”.
They, the Egyptians, were not able to stop the Jewish Nation as there is no stopping the Jewish Nation once the Al-mighty has set things in motion.

We are promised that soon we will be redeemed and our 3rd Holy Temple will be rebuilt. Let us work and pray in the right direction so we can have the phrase,
“BiEtzem Hayom Hazeh” – “In The Middle Of The Day”, be used and seen in our final redemption.
