Thought of the Week with thanks to Rabbi Leon AnafIn this week’s parsha Moshe tells the people “I am 120 years old today. I can no longer go and come and G-d has told me that I cannot cross the Jordan”. One interpretation is that when Moshe completed 120 years, he reached the maximum point of religious fulfilment, if we can imagine such a thing. He therefore informs the nation there was no longer any reason for him to continue living. If a person does not grow and advance, then the purpose of life is lost. During the 10 days of repentance we add to our prayers the request “Remember us for life, O King Who desires life, and inscribe us in the Book of Life – for your sake …” Some have explained the final phrase “for Your sake” as describing the kind of life for which we ask to be inscribed. We beg the Almighty to inscribe us for another year of life – a life devoted to Torah and mitzvot, a life rich in religious meaning and spirituality, a life that we use for the purpose of growing and elevating to new heights. Only if we indeed make such a commitment, to work toward higher levels, a bit each day, are we then entitled to approach the Almighty and beg “Remember us for life, O King Who desires life”.
