Parashat Nitzavim

28 Elul, 5776 / October 1, 2016
Triennial Cycle III: Deut. 29:9 – 30:20
Ḥumash Etz Ḥayim, page 1165
Haftarah: Isaiah 61:10-63:9, page 1180

  1. (Deut. 31:7-13) I am 120 years old today. On the last day of his life, Moses publicly transfers leadership of the nation to Joshua; and commands the priests to read the Torah before the entire people of Israel assembled at the end of the Sabbatical year.
  2. (31:14-21) And now, write down this song. A song that serves as a prophetic witness for the future if you will violate the covenant.
  3. (31:22-30) Moses writes down the words of this Torah, and commands that it be placed in the Ark of the Covenant, knowing that his people will need a constant reminder of the covenant.
