The only weekly Torah portion - Parsha (since He was Born and forgetting much of Dvorim where Moshe speaks in first Person) where we do not find Moshe's (Moses’s) name written is the Parsha of this week, Parshas Tetzaveh.

The Baal HaTurim explains that after Cheit HaEgel (the sin of the Golden Calf) Moshe told Hashem (G-d) that if He doesn't forgive Bnei Yisroel (the children of Israel), then He should erase Moshe's name from the Sefer Torah. Although Hashem forgave them, nevertheless a tzaddik's (righteous person’s) words do not go unheeded and Moshe was left out of Parshas Titzaveh.

So why Tetzaveh? The Vilna Gaon says the reason for Moshe's absence is that the 7th (of the Hebrew month of) Adar, Moshe's Yahrtzeit (anniversary of death), almost always falls out in the week of Tetzaveh. Since he left us this week his name doesn't appear.

Nevertheless says the Vilna Gaon, Moshe's name is hidden in the Parsha. There are 101 pasukim (verses) in the parsha. If you take the hidden letters in Moshe's name it equals 101. Mem is spelled Mem, Mem the second "hidden" mem = 40. Shin is spelled Shin, Yud Nun, the hidden yud and nun equal = 60. Hey is spelled Hey, Aleph = 1 for a total of 101.

We see from here, says the Vilna Gaon, that even after the gashmiyos (physical) of Moshe, his exterior body was taken from us, nevertheless his ruchniyos (spiritual), his Neshama (soul) is still with us.
