oses and Aaron are
mentioned together
so often we tend to
forget that allowing the
priesthood to pass from the
lawgiver's seed to Aaron and
his descendants was an act of
self-effacing acceptance of
God's will. After all, millions
of Jews throughout the cen-
turies have looked back with
justifiable pride to Aaron
their ancestor, the first High
Priest. But who among us
claims to be descended from
Moses?
Such self-effacement ex-
presses itself in the subtle
fact that in this week's por-
tion, 'Ibtzaveh, Moses's name
is not mentioned even once,
while Aaron's name appears

well over 30 times. It seems
that in the portion devoted to
the holy vestments and the
consecration of Aaron's priest-
ly line, Moses steps back to
allow Aaron to step forward.
This is the week of Aaron, but
the truth is that it is not just
the week of those who claim
Aaron as ancestor, but our
week as well. The entire na-
tion of Israel was created to
be a nation of priests,
dedicated to God.
After the destruction of the
temple, all ritual acts of
purification and sacrifice
designed to safeguard the
priestly character of Israel
were suspended. We man-
aged, • nonetheless, to pre-
serve, if not increase, our
priestly character for the
eventual day when the entire
world, according to the
Midrash, will accept the

Torah and become as Israel-
ites, and the Israelites will
become as priests.
This metamorphosis begins
in the simplest way possible
— how we wake up. Before we
do anything else, we fill a
large cup or vessel with water.
With the left hand we pour an
amount over the right, and
with the right hand an
amount over the left, for three
cycles. Placing our hands
directly under the faucet
would save time, but this act,
recalling the priestly ablu-
tions in the temple, is to be
performed bekoach gavra
(from one's own vitality). The
blessing we make, . . . netilat
yaddaim . . ., refers to the lift-
ing of the hands which was
how the priests began their
service. Lifting something
with our own strength an-
nounces that we are about to
