What Parsha is it this week?

Shabbat 23 Menachem Av 5782

The weekly parsha is Eikev.

Eikev is the 3rd parsha in sefer Devarim / Deuteronomy.

Parshat Eikev is 111 verses from Devarim / Deuteronomy 7:12 – 11:25.

Moses reminds the Jewish people that their key to success is obeying God’s commandments. This parsha includes the second paragraph of the Shema.

Here is a summary of Parshat Eikev.

Haftarah for Eikev

Isaiah 49:14 – 51:3

This haftarah does not relate directly to the parsha. Rather it is the second of the seven haftarahs of consolation that are read after Tisha B’Av. All of these haftarahs are taken from Isaiah.

Zion claims that God has forsaken her. God responds that He is always paying close attention to her. All that is required is for the Jewish people to repent.
