The Baal Haturim says that in the current Parshe Tetzaveh Mosheh Rabbenu’s name is not mentioned. But I heard that it is implied at the end of the parshe. ‘יכפר עליו לדרתיכם קודש קדשים הוא לה the first letters of this verse add up to Mosheh. He will ask forgiveness for us in future generations.February 22, 2018 12:33 pm at 12:33 pm #1474271
The Baal Haturim explains that Mosheh Rabbenu’ s name is not mentioned in Parshas Tetzaveh because he asked to be erased from your book you wrote. It looks like this is a punishment. It could be that this is a commemoration of his greatness. His two outstanding character traits are his compassion and humility. This could commemorate both as this statement above was said for the forgiveness of the Bnei Yisroel of the sin of the golden calf. It also indicates his humility feeling that he is not worthy to be mentioned. The GRA says that this commemorates his yahr zeit which is every year at Parshas Tetzaveh.February 22, 2018 12:33 pm at 12:33 pm #1474318
The Ohr Hachaim in the beginning of Parshas Tetzaveh says that next redemption will come because of the zechus of Mosheh Rabbenu. Learning Torah lishmah will bring Moshiach. Could be that is why his name is not mentioned. The Gemora says that Haman did not know that Mosheh Rabbenu died on 7th of Ador and he was born on the 7th of Ador. That he died on 7th of Ador he knew? The simple explanation is died then because he was born then, but the Yaaros Dvash says that right away when he died he was reborn. We get the strength to be mechadesh from Mosheh Rabbenu. It could be his name is not mentioned because this strength is hidden.February 22, 2018 1:02 pm at 1:02 pm #1474330
Mosheh Rabbenu said to Yisro כי יהיה להם דבר בא אלי it should have said באים in plural, but the Chasan Sofer explains that Mosheh Rabbenu said to yisro, their concern comes to my heart and I have to act on it.February 22, 2018 1:04 pm at 1:04 pm #1474355
The light of Moshe Rabbenu might relate to Mordechai who lit up the Jews through whom they accepted the Torah with their full heart. נתמלא הבית כלו אורה like it says היתה אורה ושמחה.March 1, 2020 5:06 pm at 5:06 pm #1836664
Let us remember zayin ador as mentioned above, the strength of Moshe Rabbenu to be mechadesh something and the mapalah of Haman ym’s which happened in the zachus of Moshe Rabbenu.February 14, 2021 10:03 am at 10:03 am #1947901
There is an implication in Parashas Tetzaveh which I heard from Rav Moshe Meir Weiss’ Shlita grand father ztz’l that the last words’ of the parasha from yechaper alav beginning letters gematriah add up to Mosheh 10+70+30+100+100+5+30=345. He will pray for forgiveness in the future generations as mentioned above.February 14, 2021 10:29 am at 10:29 am #1947910WolfishMusingsParticipant
So, why is Moshe’s name not in Parshas Nitzavim?

Wolf, don’t degrade yourself. Your kashye is a good one and I think both the Targum Yanoson, Chezkuni and the Rashbam allude to it. The Targum Yanoson includes his name and the Chezkuni, Rashbam explains it further that it refers to the end of Parashas Ki Savo from Shvii and this parasha is just a continuation and the beginning of the parasha is just a resting point.February 17, 2021 10:05 am at 10:05 am #1949150jackkParticipant
Nitzavim and Vayalech can also be considered one parshah. They are almost always read together.February 17, 2021 1:06 pm at 1:06 pm #1949262
It should be mentioned in tbe beginning of the parashah not tbe end.February 17, 2021 3:41 pm at 3:41 pm #1949354jackkParticipant
Who said the klal of the beginning of the parsha?February 17, 2021 4:47 pm at 4:47 pm #1949380
jakk, maybe you are right as Parashas Tzaveh I indicated has the implication at the end. Look at the Targum Yanoson for Nitzavim mentioned above. A proof to tbe Rishonim above is that in between Ki Savo and Nitzavim the parashiyos are pesuach with tbree pehs also between Nitzavim and Vayelech.
