These are the words that Moses spoke to all the Israelites across the Jordan… in Hebrew the word for Jordan  is  yarden  and sounds the same as  yeridah – to go down. R. Ahron of Karlin explained that at some point, every person experiences their own  yarden – their own low point, where they feel as if “they’re going down.” When that moment comes, if we look for  the words that Moses spoke,  if we look to the Torah for strength, we will be able to cross that low point and come out the other side.
