Shalom. This is our commentary on the Torah’s final portion, V’zot Ha’Berachah – “And this is the blessing.” In this portion, Moses prepares to be gathered unto “his fathers” but before leaving this world, like Jacob, he blesses the tribes of Israel. In doing so, Moses exemplifies the characteristics of a great leader: he blesses those who provoked his transgression which kept him from going into the Land. Also, like Jacob, Moses blends prophecy with the blessing indicating what is to be the outcome for each tribe. Hope you enjoy.
