We finish the Book of Shmos this Shabbos and the very last verse  
contains the words "...l'einay chol beis Yisroel..." (before the eyes of 
all of the HOUSE of Israel).  The very last three words of the entire 
Torah are  "...l'einay kol Yisroel" (before the eyes of all Israel). Why
is the word "beis" [HOUSE of ] missing at the end of the Torah but not
the end of Shmos?  
I don't know if that question was ever raised but my pure guess is that 
the HOUSE (beis) is missing at the end because it refers to the
Beis Hamikdash which tragically will be destroyed in the future.
