Thought of the Week with thanks to Rabbi James KennardAt the very end of this week’s Torah reading “Naso”, the Torah describes how Moses would enter the sanctuary and hear the voice of God “speaking to him” (Numbers 7:89). Rashi comments that the grammatical form of the verb in Hebrew more precisely means “was speaking to Himself” and that Moses was merely overhearing, since it is not courteous to the Almighty to say that He was directing his words to one human individual.

But in fact, for a person to “hear God speaking to Himself” does not represent a lower level than hearing God speak directly to them. On the contrary, it takes a prophet to be able to “tune in” to God’s own thoughts. Nevertheless, we can all try to “hear God speaking to Himself” when we look at nature, at history or at the events of our own lives. Sometimes all it takes is the ability to listen carefully.
