    Climbing a mountain – B’har

    The name of the sidra means “On the mountain”. Psalm 121 is rhapsodic about looking up to mountains.

    The question is what comes next, when you have scaled the mountain, when you have congratulated yourself and even planted a flag to show your arrival.

    Is that the moment to stop saying, “I lift up my eyes to the mountain”?

    The answer is No. You should always see another mountain ahead. Not until your last moment on earth should you say, “I have no mountains to climb!”
