Va’etchanan (I Pleaded) D’Varim (Deut.) 3:23-7:11

Haftorah Readings: Isaiah (Yesh’yahu) 40:1-26

Bless each of you today. I would like to begin with a verse from the Prophet Isaiah. The Prophet reading for this Sabbath begins with Isaiah 40:1, “Comfort ye comfort ye My people! says your G-d.” Because of this verse this Sabbath is known as the Sabbath Nachamu or the Sabbath of comfort. This is not talking about physical comfort but more a spiritual and emotional comfort. The important point being made to each of us is to comfort the Jewish people. G-d is directing us to comfort His people.

It is also mainly written with Moshe speaking in the first person.
