Torah Portion – Ekev (D’varim 7:12-11:25)

Categories: All Posts, Audio Teachings, Torah Portions

Shalom. This is my commentary on the parsha Ekev or "reward." This focuses on the spiritual preparations for possessing the land. In this portion we learn that for Israel to do so meant they must resist the temptation of foreign gods as the well as the temptation that the fertile land and its bounty would present - the opportunity to forget God and His commands. Thus, Moses compels them to circumcise their hearts; to hear Him, to fear Him and love Him. This is a very "rich" parsha - I hope you enjoy. (Approximately 90 minutes)

Torah Portion: Ekev
This is Bill's commentary on the parsha Ekev or "reward." In this sidrah, Moses prepares the children of Israel for the impending crossing over into the land and spiritual challenges that lay ahead. We learn that for Israel to accomplish what the Creator has intended for them, they must resist the temptation of foreign gods and the inclination to forget that it is the goodness of God- alone that has brought them prosperity and peace. The essence of this portion for all of us, as Moses exhorted Israel, is to circumcise our hearts and hearken unto His voice and keep His commands. I hope you enjoy. (Approximately 90 minutes)

    What a perfect (imho) answer to such a difficult question that is permeating the body today – thank you for ‘spelling’ it out – totally agree with you … hopefully we will be able to focus on what is important and so lacking in the body .. and that is how we love one another.

    Your message is right on – and a much needed one! Blessings brother!
