1. This Shabbos follows the holiday of Shavuos in the diaspora. It is the first Shabbos after the Jewish people were given the Ten Commandments; it has new intensity. The power of teshuvah is to change the past. The pattern of Divine service is always to increase.
2. Naso means “lift up,” raise the level of Torah, prayer and enthusiasm for mitzvos. Every Jew can encourage another Jew to do more. Overcome the yetzer hora and convert it to holiness.
3. Why does Rashi comment on the term “Ish, Ish,” and why does he use a homiletical explanation? Here the term “Ish, Ish” is out of place, for it is not a common occurrence and so the Midrashic explanation fits better.
4. Effort must be made to encourage people to increase their Torah study. Torah must be studied with diligence and humility. We must teach many students and raise the quality of learning. The rabbis must go out to teach the people, even to such places where the filth has to be pushed aside.
