The Sabbath Torah Portion – V’zot Habracha (And This is the Blessing)
Open your hand to receive God’s abundant blessings poured out upon the tribes of Israel. God is faithful. All that is asked is acceptance of the covenant and to walk in God’s ways; the Lord will provide all the safety and protection needed.
The name “Jeshurun” was also used in the Song of Moses in 32:15, found also in Isaiah 44:2. It is a nickname for Israel, a term of endearment for God’s people.
Moses dies on Mount Nebo. Read with awe, the death of this great man of God. Be moved by the grief of the people. Joshua is ready. Find comfort in the One who would be the prophet-like-Moses to come, whom God knew face to face as Father and Son.
With this passage, we join Jewish people as they rejoice at completing the cycle of readings from the Torah.
Saturdays are dedicated to the Sabbath Torah portions
read in synagogues throughout the world.
