Rabbi Silber shares a beautiful message from Reb Levi Yitzchok. As Moshe stood with Klal Yisroel on the precipice of Eretz Yisroel he reviews with them the entire Torah. Reb Levi Yitzchok has a unique approach that sets the stage as we prepare to enter into Tisha B’av. While our spiritual framework has certainly been compromised with the destruction of the Temple, Moshe teaches us an important lesson of hope and confidence even as we experience golus and continue to yearn for the Beis Hamikdash.
Rabbi Silber shares a wonderful insight into the nature of the greatness of Yehoshua bin Nun. Chazal tell us that P’nei Moshe k’pnei chama (the face of Moshe radiated like the sun), p’nei Yehoshua k’pnei levana (while the face of Yehoshua reflected as the moon). The words of chazal bespeak a latent potential within all of us and how we CAN and SHOULD aspire for greatness.
