Commentary on the Weekly Torah Portion from Rabbi Jonathan’s Recent Book

Tetzaveh | תצוה Brothers’ Keepers
Curiously, this week’s Torah portion, Tetzaveh, never mentions Moses by name. This is the only Torah portion from Moses’ birth at the beginning of the book of Exodus until the Children of Israel reach the far banks of the Jordan at the end of the book of Numbers in which Moses’ name does not appear.
