Parasha: Va’etchanan, Deuteronomy 3:23-7:11
Date: August 3, 2017
Someone once said: If it is worth saying once, it is worth repeating. This is certainly true in this week’s Torah portion, Va’etchanan. One of the highlights in Va’etchanan is the repetition of the Aseret HaDibrot, the Ten Commandments. These statements establish the core of the law system that is to be put into place after the Israelites have crossed the Jordan River.
