  • Cry Me a River
    Our Sedra is famously known as "Parshat Eretz Yisrael." While virtually every Sedra in the Torah stresses the centrality of Israel, Ekev makes it crystal clear that G-d, Torah & Eretz Yisrael form the 3-legged stool upon which the Jewish People eternally rests.

    “If only you would listen to these laws …” (Deut. 7:12). These words with which our Parsha begins contain a verb that is a fundamental motif of the book of Devarim. In fact, this verb appears no less than 92 times in Devarim as a whole.
