Zohar Ki Tetze
“וַיִּקְבֹּר אֹתוֹ בַגַּיְ בְּאֶרֶץ מוֹאָב מוּל בֵּית פְּעוֹר וְלֹא יָדַע אִישׁ אֶת קְבֻרָתוֹ עַד הַיּוֹם הַזֶּה”
“and he buried him in the valley in the land of Moab opposite Beth-peor; but no one knows the place of his burial to this day.”
Because of the sin of the Israelites God buried Moses in an unknown location outside the Land of Israel so they can return from exile.
“וְהוּא מְחֹלָל מִפְּשָׁעֵנוּ מְדֻכָּא מֵעֲוֹנֹתֵינוּ מוּסַר שְׁלוֹמֵנוּ עָלָיו וּבַחֲבֻרָתוֹ נִרְפָּא לָנוּ”
“But He became unholy for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His wound we are healed.”
‘by His wound we are healed’. ‘Wound’ ‘חֲבֻרָתוֹ’ has the root ‘חבר’ that represents connection and unification. Moses is like the light of the sun. At night the sun is not in our skies but it shines through the moon, stars and the constellations to help us. Moses left the Torah for us with the laws and Kabbalah to bring light into our lives. He is like springs of water that nourish the roots of the ‘trees’, us. He is concealed from us until the springs of Torah and Kabbalah come out to the open.
“יָפוּצוּ מַעְיְנֹתֶיךָ חוּצָה בָּרְחֹבוֹת פַּלְגֵי מָיִם”
“Should your springs overflow in the streets, your streams of water in the public squares”
Our studies of Torah and Kabbalah reveal the ‘springs’ of Moses and hasten the end of exile.
