Parsha

There never again arose a prophet in Israel like Moshe . . . (Devarim 34:10)

Like Parashas Bereishis, the first parshah and arguably one of the most important of the entire Torah, Parashas Zos HaBrochah, the very last parshah of the entire Torah, always seems to get short shrift. It is read on Simchas Torah which steals the show. This is after a week of Succos during which the priorities are the proper fulfillment of the mitzvah of lulav and esrog, and enjoying life in the Succah.

The Yom Kippur service features a long list of 44 mistakes. What does it all mean?

In Judaism we say that if you can get to the root of the problem, you can eliminate it entirely. That

"The Torah that Moshe commanded us is a heritage to the Congregation of Jacob"(33:4)

Simchas Torah is a day in which we celebrate the Torah. Why did Chazal see fit to designate a separate day for Simchas Torah? Would not Shavuos, the day we received the Torah, be a more appropriate time for this celebration?

The Talmud instructs a father that as soon as his child is able to speak, he should teach him. "Torah tzivah lanu Moshe morasha Kehilas Yaakov" - "The Torah that Moshe commanded us is a

Chapter 32

1 Listen, O heaven…. Hear, O earth: The prophet Isaiah also addressed heaven and earth, but he switched the verbs that Moses associated with them. He said, “Hear, O heavens, and listen, O earth.” The Midrash explains that this is because one can ask someone close to him “to listen” but can ask someone far from him only “to hear.” Since Moses was closer to heaven than to earth, he asked heaven to “listen” to him and earth to “hear” him
