This Week’s Portion

Va'etchanan I pleaded — ואתחנן

For the week of July 24,  2021
  • TORAH:  DEUTERONOMY 3:23-7:11
  • HAFTARAH:  ISAIAH 40:1-26
  • GOSPEL:  LUKE 3:2-15

Portion Summary

The forty-fifth reading from the Torah and the second reading from the book of Deuteronomy is named Va’etchanan (ואתחנן), which means “and I besought.” The title comes from the first verse of the reading, which says, “I also pleaded (va’etchanan) with the LORD at that time” (Deuteronomy 3:23). The portion completes the historical prologue of the Deuteronomy covenant document and begins a rehearsal of the stipulations. Part of that rehearsal is a repetition of the Ten Commandments and the famous first passage of the Shema: Deuteronomy 6:4-9.
