Trumah: Chapter 90

Moses did not die


Rabbi Shimon says here that from our point of view death is called 'death', but from the view of those above, life is increased to one who dies. So Moses did not die, and neither did Jacob, because he had a complete Faith. When Jacob was renamed 'Israel', we learn, it meant the perfection of everything, which is the lack of death.


Death dies. All is perfected and made eternal through Jacob and Moses. Mercy and loving kindness envelop the entire metamorphosis.
