Eikev – “Consequence”

This week our parasha is Eikev, which means “consequence”, and covers Deuteronomy 7:12-11:25.  In this parasha we will see the importance of making choices and the consequences that it brings depending on how we choose. Our parasha begins in chapter 7 continuing the speech Moses is giving our people before we begin to take possession of the promise land.  If

Eikev – “On The Heel Of”

This week’s Parasha is Eikev, which means “on the heel of.” In this Parasha Moses continues his final speeches to the Israelis before they enter the Promised Land. These instructions are more about obeying their God and are a warning. I think a good theme for this is the following: “If you have real faith, you will trust Me; and

Eikev – “Consequence”

The Torah portion for this Shabbat is called Eikev meaning “consequence”. Israel is told that if they will be faithful to observe Adonai’s commandments, the ‘consequences’ will be blessing and health, prosperity and protection. But that’s a big ‘IF’.

“If you pay attention to these laws and are careful to follow them, then the Lord your God will keep His covenant of love with you, as He promised to your ancestors.” This is how our Parasha, entitled Eikev begins and, like last week’s portion, affirms that obedience and faith in God equal the fulfillment of a beautiful promise far

Eikev – “Because”

This week’s Torah portion is titled Eikev. It takes us from Chapters 7:12 to 11:25 in the book of Deuteronomy.  Eikev translates to English as – because; but more specific – “a consequence of” referring to an action. Parasha Eikev is a continuation of Moses translating God’s commandments, judgments and statutes to the newly formed nation of Israel. The parasha

The Parasha for this week is entitled Eikev, which is translated “consequence” and covers Deuteronomy 7:12-11:25.
