Parasha Va-et’chanan

Deuteronomy 3:23-7:11


This parasha continues Moses’ discourse to the people as they prepare to enter the Promised Land.  Moses reminds the people that God rejected his pleas to accompany them across the Jordan River and that Joshua will become their leader. Moses continues with a summary of the laws the people must follow in order to remain faithful to the covenant with God.   The Ten Commandments are repeated here and the unique and vital words of the Shema are set forth
