Vaetchanan – Rabbi Marcus

 

Vaetchanan opens with Moshe’s plea, asking G-D to allow him into the promised land. Most famously, in Moshe’s review of the Torah this week, we read about the Aseret Hadibrot, the Ten Statements or Instructions, commonly (mistakenly) referred to as the Ten Commandments. Being the Shabbat after the Fast of Av, this Shabbat is called the Shabbat of Comfort where we read the Prophet Isaiah’s words of comfort to the nation after the destruction of the Temple.
