Shabbat without Moses

And the Lord said to Moses, “This is the Land I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, ‘I will give it to your offspring.’ I have let you see it with your eyes, but you shall not cross over there…

And Moses the servant of G-d died there in the Land of Moab by the mouth of G-d… and no man knows his burial place to this day…

There arose not a prophet since in Israel like Moses, whom G-d knew face to face.
