Naso Text message

Parashat Naso (Count)

This is the longest parasha of the whole Torah. A great part of its length is due to the repetition of the offerings and gifts of the leaders of the twelve tribes of Israel at the dedication of the Mishkan.
The last verse of this section is extremely interesting. Numbers 7:89 "And when Moses went into the tent of meeting to speak with him, then he heard the Voice speaking unto him from above the mercy-seat that was upon the ark of the testimony, from between the two cherubim: and he spoke unto him."

Hashem is speaking with... Himself... Hashem is thinking aloud. It seems Hashem is doing self reflection.
Only after that does G-d speak to Moses. Self reflection is a great idea, especially if you are about to say something meaningful.

In memory of my beloved mother and teacher Miriam Rachel bat Israel Itzchak Z"L
