This week’s Torah portion is “Va’etchanan” (Deut 3:23-7:11) and in it we read about Moses begging to enter the land of Israel, the second version of the Ten Commandments, the ban on intermarriage and much more.
This portion also contains the famous, holy “Shema Yisrael” prayer – the Jewish declaration of absolute faith in God and His Oneness and the commandment to love Him. This will be the main focus of this week’s class.
Join Rabbi Enkin as he dissects and explains Judaism’s holiest prayer throughout the ages in a way you’ve never experienced before.
What are the daily requirements and deadlines for reciting the Shema? Why are there 3 different paragraphs from 3 different parts of the Torah that make up the “long version” of Shema?
Why must the Shema be placed on our arms, between our eyes and on our doorposts? Are women required to recite the Shema just like men?
There is so much to learn about this incredible prayer – don’t miss this week’s presentation!
