parashaWEEKLY PARASHA

 

Parasha Shof’tim

Deuteronomy 16:18-21:9

Moses continues his address to the people as they are about to enter the Promised Land.  This parasha discusses the requirements for a judicial system and includes the well-known sentiment “Justice, justice shall you pursue” (16:20).  Moses speaks of  the prohibition against sorcery, the creation of “cities of refuge” for those who have committed  murder inadvertently, the  rules regarding war and who should be exempt from battle and the laws pertaining to the appointment of a king.  The parasha concludes with an explanation of what shall be done by a community if a dead body has been found in its midst but the murderer is unknown.
