This Week’s Torah Portion: Devarim

Devarim

When we first met him back in Parashat Shemot Moshe said to God: “Lo Ish Devarim Anochi, I am not a man of words” (Shemot 4:10). Here in Parashat Devarim, however, Moshe is a man ofmany words. Like a movie on rewind, Moshe goes through a number of problems that Bnai Yisrael encountered throughout the desert, including the Amorites who chased Bnai Yisrael like Dvorim, bees. The Midrash in Devarim Rabbah 1:6 discusses a word-play between Dvarim, words, and Dvorim, bees. What do you believe is the significance of the similarities between these two words? How do Moshe’s words in this Parasha sting Bnai Yisrael? What is it like for you to revisit past disappointments with important people in your lives?
