As the children of Israel are about to enter the land of milk and honey, Moses gives them their final instructions. This week’s Torah reading talks about the importance of keeping the commandments. We are told of the blessings the children of Israel will receive for following the commandments, and the curses that will befall them if they do not!
As Moshe concludes his time as leader, he has some last words of wisdom to pass over.
This week we see the children of Israel learn about the future they may face. Help them find the mountain that will lead them to many blessings!
This week we see Moses giving some final words of advice to the people of Israel. He is getting ready to end his time as the leader of Bnei Israel and hand over leadership to Yehoshua Ben Nun. In this week’s Torah reading, Moses hands the written Torah to the Priests to pass it on to the people to learn and to follow. Help Moses pass the torah to the Priests this week.
In the second to last Parsha of the Chumash, Moshe looks at what he cannot have.
At the end of this week’s Parsha, Parshat Haazinu, Moshe is permitted to view the Land of Israel from a distance, since he will die before the Israelites enter:
Parshat Vayelech contains the last two commandments found in the Torah and they both relate to the Torah itself. The first is the mitzvah to gather the people together for a special reading of the Torah every seven years (Deuteronomy 31:10-13) and the second is the mitzvah for every person to write a Sefer Torah (Deuteronomy 31:19). Kids will love making their very own mini Sefer Torah!
As Bnei Yisrael continue towards the Land of Israel, Moshe has some final words.
This week’s parsha refers to Jerusalem often though never mentions it by name!
In this week’s Torah reading we’re looking at new leadership and we’re preparing for war.
