Va’etchanan-I pleaded with G‑d... please let me pass over and see the good land...”

-Va’etchanan 3:23-25

Our sages note that the numerical equivalent of Va’etchanan is 515, corresponding to the 515 prayers of Moses to enter the Land of Israel. He pleaded persistently in spite of having been told that he would not be permitted to do so.

This teaches us that we, too, must persist with continuous pleadings of “Ad Matai-How much longer?” in asking to enter the Land of Israel with the Messianic redemption.

As we are the generation of the redemption, our sincere prayers will undoubtedly effect the imminent revelation of Moshiach!
