Shabbat Service and Torah Discussion — Parasha Haazinu

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

This week’s parasha is Haazinu — Hebrew for "listen" when directed to more than one person, and is the 53rd weekly Torah portion in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading. It is the 10th in the Book of Deuteronomy. The parasha sets out the Song of Moses — who sings his last song, a love poem to G-d and a chastisement of the people, who are not worthy of Adonai. The poem recounts the blessings that G-d has bestowed on the Israelites, the wicked deeds they have committed, and the punishments that G-d then inflicted upon them. G-d tells Moses to begin his ascent of Mount Nebo, from where he will see the Land of Israel from a distance but will not be allowed to enter it.

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.
