The Rambam in Hilchos Teshuva 5;2 writes that we should all strive to be like Moshe Rabbeinu. Rav Pam asked, how could the Rambam say this, after the Torah says there will be  no one as great as Moshe? Rav Pam explains that Hashem said on Moshe כי כל ביתו נאמן הוא , we see that even though no one can be as great as Moshe, that is only regarding Nevuah, Middos and wisdom, but to build a Bayis Neman B’Yisrael one has to channel everything he does for Hashem and in that everyone can strive to be like Moshe and we should all be zoche to a Bayis Neman B’Yisrael in the truest sense.


The Talmud (Megilla 13b) states “When Haman drew lots for the month to carry out the annihilation of the Jewish people it fell in Adar, Haman was very happy with this as this is the month that Moshe Died” the Gemara continues that what Haman didn’t realize is that it was also the month that Moshe was born. The question is what difference does it make now that Moshe was also born in Adar, at the end of the day this is the month that he died?

The Yaaros Dvash explains that although Moshe did indeed die on the 7th of Adar, he is reborn each year on the 7th of Adar to help each and every Jew learn and fulfill the Torah properly, every Jew has Moshe Rabbeinu helping him! It was this zechus of Moshe Rabbeinu that dissolved Haman’s plot and turned the tables. Vnehapoch Hu…….

Yom Kippur is a time of renewal a time to start fresh  a time of teshuva. During the times of the Beis Hamikdosh, this renewal process was done by the Kohen Godol via the avodah of the Day. The Gemara says that Moshe Rabbeinu had the status of a Kohen Godol. We see just like on Yom Kippur we have a renewal, so too on the 7th of Adar, on the day that Moshe Rabbeinu is reborn we have a renewal to learn Torah and fulfill it properly with the aid of Moshe.

The same applies to  Purim, which is a special Eis Rotzon for Teshuva and Tefilla. Hashem should help us that today should be a new time, a time of renewal in Torah and in the zechus of Moshe Rabbeinu  we should be able to fulfill the Torah  properly.
