What is the connection between Hor ha'Har and the western border?


Rashi: Hor ha'Har, which was situated at the north-western tip of Eretz Yisrael, 1 rose out of the sea at its northernmost tip, so that part of it was actually in the sea and part of it outside.


Da'as Zekenim (4), Hadar Zekenim (4): This is not to be confused with the Hor ha'Har on which Aharon died, as there were two places named Hor ha'Har. Moshav Zekenim: Aharon died south of Eretz Yisrael, on the border of Eretz Edom. The Hor ha'Har here was situated on the northern border of Eretz Yisrael; the Gemara in Gitin 8a, calls it "Turei Amnon".


What does "Tesa'u lachem Hor ha'Har" mean?


Rashi: "Tesa'u ... " means 'You shall turn 1 to Hor ha'Har' - from the west to the north.


Rashbam, Targum Onkelos and Targum Yonasan: It means 'make the border Hor ha'Har'.


Rashi: Like "El Ta ha'Ratzim", in Divrei ha'Yamim 2, 12:11, and "ve'Sa'ei ha'Sha'ar" (Yechezkel 40:10), which have connotations of sloping.


Our verse implies that Hor ha'Har is in Eretz Yisrael. Moshe and Aharon did not enter the land, yet they came to Hor ha'Har (20:23)!


Da'as Zekenim (4), Hadar Zekenim (4): There were two places named Hor ha'Har. Moshav Zekenim
