  1. Standing Together This Day DT Nitzavim/Vayelech

    This week’s parasha is the double portion Nitzavim/Vayelekh. At the beginning of the parasha Moses tells the Jewish people, “You stand this day, all of you, before the Eternal your God…to enter into the covenant of the Eternal your God, which the Eternal your God is concluding with you this day…that God may establish you this day as God’s people and be your God.”

  2. Standing Together in Covenant DT HC Nitzavim/Vayelech

    This week’s double Torah portion opens with the words “You stand this day, all of you, before the Lord your God…” (Deuteronomy 29:9). A covenantal moment is too important to be trusted only into the hands of just the leaders, officials, priests—or board members and paid professionals. Everyone, from the chieftains to “the woodcutters and water carriers,” even “strangers” (non-Israelites dwelling among the Israelites) must be there to witness and affirm it. The wording suggests not an event that happened once, but an ongoing or reoccurring phenomenon.
