This week’s Torah portion, Parashat Va-et’chanan, has many very significant, very important and famous sections in it. We already talked about it a little bit: you heard that the Sh’ma, the V’ahavta are in this Torah portion.

This week, we begin the fifth and final book of the Torah, the book of D’varim, the book of Deuteronomy. And as we begin, the Israelites are on the brink of entering the Promised Land.

This week we read the final of the two portions from the book of Numbers, Matot and Mas’ei. And after almost forty years of wandering, the Israelites are on the border of the Land of Israel—they’re not in Israel yet, but they’re looking in—and they’re about to enter the Promised Land.

?Faced with a particularly challenging problem, a lot of our first instinct is to want to beat the problem with a stick, whether it’s a figurative or a literal stick. We saw that actually in last week’s Torah portion, when Balaam’s donkey does not move, and so he takes a stick to her and just beats her, even though she was acting in his best interests.

Cantor Buchdahl told you a little bit about what happens in this week’s parashah, Parashat Balak. And that is that Moabite King Balak, afraid of the power of the people of Israel as we are wandering through the desert passing by his kingdom, thinks of this great scheme.
