He went — וַיֵּלֶךְ
For the week of September 25th, 2022
TORAH: DEUTERONOMY 31:1-31:30
PROPHETS: HOSEA 14:2-10; MICAH 7:18-20; JOEL 2:15-27
GOSPEL : MATTHEW 21:9-17
The name of the fifty-second reading from the Torah is Vayelech, which means “and he went.” The name is derived from the first word of the first verse of the portion: “So Moses went (vayelech) and spoke these words to all Israel.” In this short portion, Moses commands an assembly for a public Torah reading and covenant renewal once every seven years. He then finishes writing the scroll of the Torah and has it deposited in the Holy of Holies next to the ark of the covenant.
