Parasha R’eih

Deuteronomy  11:26-16:17

As Moses continues his address to the Israelites before they enter the Promised Land, he speaks of choosing between blessings and curses.  He describes two mountains which the people will encounter when they cross the Jordan River.  Mount Gerizim is said to be the mountain of blessings that the people will receive if they remain faithful to God, while Mount Ebal holds the curses the people will suffer if they fail to obey God’s commandments.  Moses also speaks of the need to maintain a central sanctuary for sacrificial worship. He cautions the people to be wary of false prophets and not to be enticed by other religious practices.  The parasha sets forth the penalty of death for those who attempt to sway others from their faith in God.
