TORAH PORTION

Vayeilech ... [Moses] Went
Deuteronomy 31:1-30
Moses went and spoke these things to all Israel. He said to them:
"I am now one hundred and twenty years old, I can no longer be active. Moreover, the Eternal has said to me, 'You shall not go across yonder Jordan.'" - Deuteronomy 31:1-2

SUMMARY:
  • Moses prepares the people for his death and announces that Joshua will succeed him. (31:1-8)
  • Moses instructs the priests and the elders regarding the importance of reading the Torah. (31:9-13)
  • God informs Moses that upon his death, the people will commit idolatry and "many evils and troubles shall befall them." God tells Moses to teach the people a poem that will "be My witness."
    (31:14-30)

BSA Religious Emblem Class  starting in October

A few years ago, CNT families came together to teach our sons Cub Scout curriculum to earn the Aleph Award for religious education. Our passion for scouting extends to their faith, and our families wanted to create another enriching experience for them to combine two integral attributes of their lives. The CNT Education Committee is thrilled to offer an opportunity for Boy Scouts ages 11 - 14 years old. A five-class curriculum will be offered starting in October for any CNT member who would like to earn the
BSA Ner Tamid religious emblem. Please contact Erin Moore at erinamoore@me.com to sign up for the class by September 10.
 
The CNT Education Committee has information on the Menorah Award
for Girl Scouts in Grades 7, 8 and 9, as well as other awards for
various ages. Please contact us if you have a Girl Scout interested in earning an award. We can't wait to see what the boys will contribute to our community as they earn the next religious emblem.
