Anyone have any links to any drashos explaining the significance of the Yerach ben Yomo/Karnei Para trop, and why it appears (uniquely in chumash) in the portion about the Levite cities (Numbers 35:5)?

  • It also appears in other places.

    @DoubleAA Another rare trop, shalsheles, appears only 4 times in chumash. Each time there is a drasha on the word, indicating the the person in question had some kind of hesitation or dilemma. I'm interested in the uniqueness of yby/kp, the fact that it appears only once in chumash, and in place it seems a pretty prosaic section. Why davka here? It does seem pretty significant, doesn't it?

Here is a link to a Drasha from Rabbi Moshe Wolfson Shlita on this topic.
