Our Sedra continues Moshe’s last words to Bnei Yisrael during the final 5 weeks of his life. He tells them he had pleaded with Hashem to be allowed entrance into Israel, but his request was denied.

Moshe warns the people to respect & follow the Mitzvot, neither adding to nor subtracting from their number. They are told to pass down their experiences of Har Sinai to every generation. Moshe warns the people that failure to keep the Mitzvot will result in exile from Israel, but eventually they will return to the Jewish homeland.

After setting aside 3 Cities of Refuge east of the Jordan, Moshe repeats the 10 Commandments.

The 1st paragraph of the Shema follows, containing the Mitzvot to love Hashem, the One and Only G-d; to educate our young; to wear Tefilin & to place a Mezuza on our doorposts.
