The opening words of today’s Sidra ‘Lech Lecha’ – meaning ‘Go forth’ signal our forefather Avram’s journey and the beginnings of Jewish history.
Rabbi Marcus – Devarim
This Shabbat we begin reading the 5th book of the Torah, Deuteronomy/Devarim.
It is principally made up of three farewell addresses by Moses to the People of Israel prior to his passing where he reviews the history of the history of the nation.
Rabbi Marcus also mentions why this Shabbat is known as Shabbat Chazon, the Shabbat of Vision.
