The NISHMA INSIGHT is our popular dvar Torah, distributed almost every week by e-mail, that touches upon an important concept in the Parsha, theme in a holiday or event in contemporary society.

Often, readers respond, via e-mail, with comments that initiate a further dialogue. Through this Discussion Forum, we now wish to open this dialogue to others. If you have a comment on the INSIGHT, we invite you place to your comments here; then we invite everyone to join the discussion.

  1. A reader of the Insight suggested to Rabbi Hecht that the significance in describing Moshe's death may lie in that thereby the Torah emphasizes that he was human. We are also thereby informed that the Torah is for everyone and that, as the Rambam states, we can all strive to be like Moshe Rabbeinu. This indeed may be a reason for reading this reminder that Torah was given to human beings on the day that we celebrate our involvment in it.
