Shabbat Service and Torah Discussion — Parasha Vayelech

  • The Chatham Synagogue 1536 County Route 28 Chatham Center, NY 12184 United States (map)

This week’s parasha is Vayelech — Hebrew for “and he went, and is the 52nd weekly Torah portion in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading. It is the ninth in the Book of Deuteronomy. In the parasha, Moses told the Israelites to be strong and courageous, as God and Joshua would soon lead them into the Promised Land. Moses commanded the Israelites to read the law to all the people every seven years. God told Moses that his death was approaching, that the people would break the covenant, and that God would thus hide God's face from them, so Moses should therefore write a song to serve as a witness for God against them.

The Shabbat service begins at 9:30 am.
The Torah discussion begins at approximately 10:30 am.

Shabbat services typically end around noon with a kiddush.
