“Vaetchanan”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, August 6th, 2017

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches the parsha from the Book of Devarim/Deuteronomy this week — “Vaetchanan” (3:32 thru 7:11) — that begins a series with more “concentrated MEAT” than perhaps any section of Scripture.

The longer teaching from Shabbat concentrates on specifics from the parsha in more detail, as well as the connections to the current “times and seasons”. Given what is happening today, and the context of this Torah portion, Mark chose to subtitle this teaching on the parsh “Where in the cycle ARE we?
