From: rhendel@mcs.drexel.edu (Russell Hendel) Date: Tue, 26 Nov 1996 22:28:48 -0500 Subject: Moses Grave : Codes : The Torah Mottel Gutnick (Vol 25, #23) asks if it is possible that real Jewish Mystics would seek Moses' grave. I would like to mention a similar question: Would a real scientist seek to find "hidden words" in periodic letters of the Torah (as is the custom these days). Both these questions have the same answer: Moses left us a Book that clearly and lucidly solves all moral problems and that has totally transformed human history more than any other book. A true mystic and scientist would seek to find the rich meaning in this Book, the Torah. Unfortunately the meanings of this book are sometimes more deeply hidden than graves ; these meanings might even elude the search capacities of the fastest computers. Moses assured us that this meaning does EXIST and if found will give us life. The law books also assure us that the CROWN of Torah is waiting to be discovered by anyone who wants to. And if anything will attract Tourists it is the wit and charm of simple religious Sages. So...Let us approach the Israeli and Lebanon governments and ask for support in finding Moses` legacy!
