An Overview of the Torah Portion

Parsha Summary: Devarim


Rabbi Stewart Weiss

This Shabbat we begin the 5th & final Book of the Torah, Devarim. Known as Mishneh Torah (the repetition of the Torah); this Sefer contains Moshe's last words to Bnei Yisrael during the final 5 weeks of his life. As the people are about to enter Eretz Yisrael, Moshe reviews many of the crucial Mitzvot & incidents of the last 40 years, & also will introduce 70 Mitzvot not discussed earlier.

Moshe gently rebukes the nation for their moments of rebellion & lack of faith - particularly the incident of the Spies - but also reminds them of Hashem's protective Hand which guided & sheltered us in the wilderness.

As the nation's new leader, Yehoshua is encouraged to continue the path of Moshe.
