Thought of the Week with thanks to Rafi Goodman. This week’s Torah reading discusses the Jews’ encampment and travels in the Sinai desert. The Torah tells how the Jewish people never knew in advance how long each encampment would be for, it could be for a day or for many years. Solely at Hashem’s instruction did they encamp or pack up and continue travelling. This teaches us two important lessons:
1. It is Hashem that leads us through all our journeys in life. We should indeed make our plans based on our life goals but at the same time realize that Hashem knows when it is in our best interest to move on to the next stage in our life or stay put. He arranges things accordingly.
2. We should never put our lives on hold in temporary situations. Since Hashem is beyond time and place, when we connect with Him even for one moment, that moment last for all time. Whether a personal journey lasts a day or a decade, we can make it into a sanctuary, infused with G-d’s presence.
