Ki Tetze (“When You Go”)
6 September 2014
(Deuteronomy 21:10-25:19)

“When you go out to battle against your enemies” begins this Torah portion. Israel is informed how to treat women captured in battle. They cannot be treated as slaves or sold on the market. Women are to be treated with respect and are not to be treated as sex objects. Children are instructed to obey parents. Lost items are to be returned to their owners. Women are not to dress in men’s clothing and men are not to dress in women’s clothing. Sex is permitted only after marriage. All human waste on the battle field is to be buried. Grounds for divorce are stipulated. La’shon hora or slander is prohibited. Debtors are to be treated with dignity.

Ki Tavo (“When you come”)
13 September 2014
(Deuteronomy 26:1-29:8)

When Israel enters the land they are to give first and tithe to the Lord. Israel is to erect stones and coat them with plaster and write the Torah on them. This was a witness to all their people. Upon the stones they were to make animal sacrifices as a ratification of the covenant between Israel and their God. Israel would be blessed by the God of Israel and were not to seek after other gods. The great God of Israel would send rain to water their crops if they remained faithful to Him. He would open up His storehouse of goodness and shower them with blessings of all kind. Israel was simply to walk before God and be a holy nation. Israel’s heart was to be directed toward the heavens.

Nitzavim/ Vayelech (“You are standing”/ “and he went”)
September 20, 2014
(Deuteronomy 29:9)

All the people are standing before God and Moses making a new commitment to God. Here everyone stands before God equally. No one is more holy than anyone else. Everyone is asked to make a holy commitment to God. They are asked to make Te’shuvah. They are to confess their sins to God and to forsake their sins. Then God will circumcise their hearts and their seed. They have a choice. They can choose life or death. The Torah is not impossible to follow. His Torah is a tree of life to all those who take hold of it. Moses’ mission is completed. He is now ready to leave his body. God will bury Moses Himself.

Ha’azinu (“Give Ear”)
27 September 2014
(Deuteronomy 32:1-52)

The parashah begins “Listen heaven! I will speak! Earth! Hear those words of my mouth”. There are two blessings given here. The first blessing is to the son himself, and the second is the blessing he pronounced over each tribe. In this song we find that God guards Israel as the pupil of His eye. He carries Israel as the eagle on the pinions of His wings. Moses refers to Israel as Jeshurun, a term of endearment. This song of Moses is a new song for a new time. Singing brings forth togetherness and a sense of harmony and unity. Moses desires unity among Israel when he leaves the land of the living,
