Sep 10, 2021

חִזְק֣וּ וְאִמְצ֔וּ אַל־תִּֽירְא֥וּ וְאַל־תַּעַרְצ֖וּ מִפְּנֵיהֶ֑ם כִּ֣י ׀ יְהֹוָ֣ה אֱלֹהֶ֗יךָ ה֚וּא הַהֹלֵ֣ךְ עִמָּ֔ךְ לֹ֥א יַרְפְּךָ֖ וְלֹ֥א יַעַזְבֶֽךָּ׃

Be strong and resolute, be not in fear or in dread of them; for Hashem your God Himself marches with you: He will not fail you or forsake you.

Deuteronomy 31:6

Rabbi Moshe Lichtman discussed the portion of “Vayelech” (And Moses went) which all takes place on the last day of the great leader’s life. In it, he explains the traumatic, life-changing episode that occurred two decades ago on September 11th.

He ties it all together in a very meaningful way, and may we learn the lessons from September 11th and the Torah portion to come closer to God, and to each other.
