TORAH PORTION  
Eikev [And if You] Obey [These Rules]
Deuteronomy 7:12-11:25
And if you do obey these rules and observe them carefully, the Eternal your God will maintain faithfully for you the covenant made on oath with your fathers. - Deuteronomy 7:12
 
SUMMARY:
  • Moses tells the Israelites that if they follow God's laws, the nations who now dwell across the Jordan River will not harm them. (7:12-26)
  • Moses reminds the people of the virtues of keeping God's commandments. He also tells them that they will dispossess those who now live in the Land only because they are idolatrous, not because the Israelites are uncommonly virtuous. Thereupon, Moses reviews all of the trespasses of the Israelites against God. (8:1-10:11)
  • Moses says that the Land of Israel will overflow with milk and honey if the people obey God's commandments and teach them to their children. (10:12-11:25)

Our Open House on July 28 th  went well. The teachers and support staff spent the non-school day answering questions and explaining the various class curriculum. RS gained 2 new students
as a result.

Religious School opened on August 4 and held classes on the
11th and 18th also. On August 25th, September 8th, and September 25th, we will have a "Try-It-Before-You-Buy It" where your child can attend active classes at no cost to enjoy the experience. Come in and 'try on' the individual level of class: Kindergarten to 7th grade.

We are presently searching for a Pre-K - Kindergarten teacher to expand our learning opportunities. If you are interested in teaching, contact Bob: rhuebsch@mynertamid.org.

Shalom,
Bob Huebsch, Director of Education
