Parsha of the Week

        Last week’s Parsha was Parshas Devorim, which was about Moshe rebuking the Jewish people by giving them a Mussar. We said that foolish people ignore a Mussar and that wise and smart people will take what you said to heart (and correct themselves).

         In this week’s parsha, Parsha Vaetchanan, Moshe saw that the Jews were taking what he had said to heart, causing him to consider the Jewish people ready for a review of the Torah. Moshe said to the Jews, that originally Hashem wanted to teach them all the Ten Commandments. But when Hashem was going to say the Third Commandment, the Jewish people were to scared to hear his awesome voice. That is why Moshe now will act as Hashem’s messenger and he told The Ten Commandments to the people.

                The Ten Commandments are:

  1. I am your G-d who took you out of Egypt.
  2. You shall have no other G-d in my presence.
  3. Do not pronounce G-d’s name in vain.
  4. Keep the Shabbos day to sanctify it.
  5. To honor one’s father and mother.
  6. You shall not murder.
  7. You shall not commit adultery.
  8. You shall not steal.
  9. You shall not bear false witness against your fellow man.
  10. Not to desire another’s property.

    Shabbat Shalom! Have a Good Shabbos!
