Devarim - 11 August 2016 / 7 Av 5776

This week we begin to read from the last book of the Torah:  Devarim (Deuteronomy).   Moses shares the history of the wilderness years with the people before they enter the Land of Israel without him.   As Moses reviews the wandering of 40 years and the people they encountered on the way, some are described as relatives, and we recognize the names from the Genesis stories.  The descendants of Esau, Jacob’s brother, are encountered along with way and so are descendants of Lot, Abraham’s nephew.   Due to these relationships, the Edomites, Moabites and Amonites are all considered “kin” to the Israelites and their land considered already allotted by God and not available to Israelite settlement.  This is a plea for peaceful coexistence with some of the people they will find as they seek to settle the Promised Land.  The Israelites learn here that they are not the only ones who received a promise and that they will be living side by side with others in and around their Promised Land.
