"Make for yourself two silver trumpets... and they shall be YOURS for the summoning of the assembly." (10:1)
The gemara (Menachot 28b) teaches that all of the vessels that Moshe made could be used by later generations as well. However, the trumpets were for Moshe to summon the nation and could not be used by subsequent leaders.
Why?
R' Eliyahu Schlesinger shlita suggests that there is a simple lesson here. The way that the leader of one generation calls his flock and relates to his congregants will not necessarily work for the leader of the next generation. Eileh Ha'devarim)
