Parashat Vayelekh

פרשת וילך

ספר דברים

"Then  he went"

Vayelekh recounts the events of Moshe's last day: he hands over leadership to Yehoshu‘a and writes the Torah on a scroll that will be kept in the Ark of the Covenant under the care of the Levites. The mitzvah of "haqhel", gathering all the people to hear the Torah every seven years on Sukkot, is also given here. Ultimately, it is predicted that although the people will go astray, the teachings of God will survive in the mouths of Israel's descendants.
