Discussion Question:

All of Sefer Devarim is applicable to all of the Jewish people. It was Moshe’s final speech to ALL of the Jewish nation. Yet, in this week’s Parsha we find the Mitzvot of Marriage. Marriage is both modest and person and definitely NOT public. Why does it appear in Sefer Devarim? 

Additional FUN resources on the Parsha including videos, coloring sheets and much more!


This Week’s Comic

Every week, we will be sending a Parsha comic from cartoonist, Andrew Galitzer. If you would like to sponsor a future comic for $18, Andrew will donate half to Berman Hebrew Academy. Please let us know.

You can print the coloring sheet and fill in Andrew’s comic, or you can add your own words!
