The Targum Yonasan says that he went to the Beis Hamedrash, why right now? Maybe, the gemora in Brachos asks why the people of Bavel live long when it is not EY? Answers the gemora, they get up early and late to the Beis Hamedrash is like EY. Explains the Meharsha that the Beis Haknesses and Beis Hamidrash will become part of EY is considered like being in EY. So, as Moshe Rabbenu could not go to EY, he did the second best to be in EY.September 12, 2021 7:50 pm at 7:50 pm #2007240RBZSParticipant

My Chasidishe Rosh Yeshiva taught that Eretz Isroel has inherent kedusha, while in other places we need to work to create islands of kedusha.September 12, 2021 11:30 pm at 11:30 pm #2007303
Moshe Rabbeinu previously complained that politics is too much for him. So, now, as he is done with politics, and Yehoshua is taking over and will deal with practicalities of applying Torah to real life in Eretz Isroel, Moshe went to spend remaining hours on his birthday to learn lishma, rather than answering shailos.September 13, 2021 8:26 am at 8:26 am #2007376
It says בשגם which add up to Moshe indicating that he will live 120 years but he figured that is maximum for a normal person. However,
the zechus of going to EY will add him additional years.September 13, 2021 10:02 am at 10:02 am #2007406
AAQ, a place of unification of Jews, in Beis Haknesses to daven and Beis Hamedrash to learn, generates the kedusha.September 13, 2021 11:53 pm at 11:53 pm #2007684
> place of unification of Jews, in Beis Haknesses to daven and Beis Hamedrash to learn,
RebE, I was got involved into a (questionable) enterprise that attempted to have parallel kabolos shabbos by O- and non-O congregations with further shmooze l’derech shalom. Planning quickly exposed various fault lines.
I asked the Rav who responded succinctly – “Jews can’t pray together, but they can learn together”.
This is maybe why Moshe went to Beis Medrash .. and something to remember in these dividing times…September 14, 2021 12:03 am at 12:03 am #2007691🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant
” and something to remember in these dividing times…”
it is quite infuriating how you make these musser comments about unification and then insert nasty racist put downs in all your other posts. And sometimes both together.
