Parasha D’Varim

Deuteronomy 1-3:22


The Book of Deuteronomy, the fifth and final book of the Torah, begins this week.  Deuteronomy contains a series of farewell speeches by Moses as the Israelites prepare to cross the Jordan River and enter the Promised Land.  Moses knows that he will not cross the river with them.   This parasha begins the prologue to Deuteronomy which continues in next week’s parasha.  Moses recites  the history of the forty years of wandering in the wilderness.   He reminds the people that God has been with them always and will continue to be with them as their challenges continue in the Promised Land.
