In this week's Torah portion, Moshe continues telling the Jewish people about what happened during the years of his leadership. He tells them about how he asked G‑d to let him go into the Land of Israel, and about how G‑d refused—but let him see the Land from a mountain. He then reminds the people of two major events in our history: the Exodus from Egypt and the Giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai.

Moshe then talks about what will happen in the future. He says that the people will worship idols and be sent away from the Holy Land and scattered all over the world, but then they will feel bad for what they did and return to G‑d and keep His laws.

This week’s Torah portion includes a repeat of the Ten Commandments and the words of the Shema which talk about the fact that G‑d is One; it also mentions various mitzvot including the mitzvah of putting on tefillin and of putting a mezuzah on the doorposts of our homes.
