WEEKLY PARASHA

 

Parasha Eikev

Deuteronomy 7:12-11:25

 
 

Moses continues his final address to the Israelites before they cross the Jordan River and enter the Promised Land.  He tells the people that they must remain faithful to their covenant with God in order to be successful in the new land and warns them of the idolatries they will find there. He reminds them of their previous failings, specifically, the building of the Golden Calf.  The parasha concludes with the familiar words of the V’ahavta as Moses tells the people to  “bind these words on your hand and let them serve as a symbol on your forehead, and teach them to your children, reciting them when you stay at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you get up, and inscribe them on the doorposts of your house on and your gates…”
