Chukas (Numbers 19-22)

Netzavim (Deuteronomy 29-30)

29:9 You are all standing ('nitzavim') before Hashem your G-D, your leaders, your tribes, your elders, and your officers, every man of Israel.

The Hebrew word 'omdim' is frequently used to denote standing. Our verse uses the Hebrew word, 'nitzavim.'

The Nesivas Shalom commentary says that this word connotes being set up in an established position or office.

By using this word, the Torah is telling us that a group can only succeed in becoming established when we are 'all standing' together, when are united.

When the people in a group fragment and are focused on their self-interests instead of the group and its purpose, the group will not have any permanence.

Rabbi General's Warning: Unbridled web surfing is not recommended. Navigate the web with caution. Use the Internet in a way so that it enhances quality of life for yourself as a person, as a family member, and as a member in society. The Internet can enhance the mastery of Torah knowledge and it can also interfere. If you are able to study in a Bet Medrash at this time then you should do so right now.
