INSIGHT: The Missing Tribe – A Short (?) Insight

Time to Bless

Time to Bless

Now, in the last hours of his life, Moshe blessed his nation. After all, אם לא עכשיו אימתי “if not now, when?” (Sounds familiar?)

וזאת הברכה, לפני מותו – סמוך למיתתו שאם לא עכשיו אימתי? רש”י

As the people stood at the threshold of Eretz Yisrael, he shared grand prophecies, promises of a glorious tomorrow for Bnei Yisrael. These blessings would surely be fulfilled, for Moshe was, as the Parsha begins, “Ish HaElokim” (a Man of G-d).

Moshe blessed each tribe – Reuven, Levi, Yehudah, Yissachar, Zevulun, Dan, Naftali, Gad, Asher, Yosef, and Binyamin – with much success for their new lives in Eretz Yisrael. Moshe compared them to certain animals with special qualities, such as an ox or a lion – much in the same way that Yaakov did when blessing his sons, the original tribes.
