Torah Portion: Devarim
From our Sages on the Parshah

G-d spoke to us in Horeb, saying: "You have long enough surrounded this mountain. Turn away, and take your journey.." (Deuteronomy 1:6-7)

"This mountain" is Mount Sinai, scene of the most monumental event in human history: G-d's revelation of His wisdom and will to man. Still G-d says: You've been hanging around this mountain long enough. Move on!

In our lives, we also have moments of revelation, times when we learn and grow and are enriched. But the purpose most always be to move on, move away, and carry the enlightenment and enrichment to someplace else -- some corner of creation that awaits redemption.

(The Lubavitcher Rebbe)
