Weekly Torah Portion – Devarim

Asking for help is a trait that must be practiced. In the book of Exodus it is Moses’ father-in-law that suggests that the Israelite leader create a system of delegates. Yet, in our parsha of Devarim, it is Moses himself that asks for help. Either way, the importance of seeking support reigns supreme. 

Welcome to the “Raising Holy Sparks” podcast! Hope you enjoy these short weekly insights into the torah portion! This week we dive deep into the Parshah of Devarim.

Sources mentioned in connection with this week’s torah portion:

  • Devarim 1:9 – “Thereupon I said to you, “I cannot bear the burden of you by myself. The Lord your God has multiplied you until you are today as numerous as the stars in the sky.— May the Lord, the God of your fathers, increase your numbers a thousandfold, and bless you as He promised you.— How can I bear unaided the trouble of you, and the burden, and the bickering! Pick from each of your tribes men who are wise, discerning, and experienced, and I will appoint them as your heads.”

Thanks for listening and looking forward to being on this journey through the books of the Torah with you!
