Torah Portion – Week 46 (updated 21-22)
Welcome brothers and sisters to week 46 – “EKEV” or known as “If you Follow. In this portion, we see the blessings for obeying Yahuah and the warnings for forgetting him and his ways, a declaration that these blessings that come to them isn’t for their righteousness, but because of the promise to Abraham Isaac and Jacob. Israel is reminded of their rebellion, the golden calf and a command to circumcise their hearts and another promise of blessings to come.
Welcome brothers and sisters, my name is Adam – Your brother in Yahusha who has been called to study the Torah and I invite you to join me.
Why we are doing this- Psalms 119:18
