This week's reading opens with Moses' plea to the Al-mighty to allow him to enter the Holy Land
(see article #5).  Spectacularly, the Reading also contains both the first paragraph of Judaism's primary prayer, Shema Yisrael (3rd article),
AND the repetition of the first formulation of the mitzvahs, The Ten Commandments, of which Shabbat is the fourth (4th article).
In addition, there is a not-so-well known holiday that falls this Thursday night - Friday, when the single Jewish women used to dance and sing together in the fields (article #1),
while Shabbat has a special name,  Shabbat Nachamu, the Shabbat of Consolation (see #7-Story).
Article #6 is for the third chapter in the third cycle of Pirkei Avot, for those who continue to study it on Shabbat afternoons throughout the summer. This week's featured article, #2, is a look at the raging medical/social topic of vaccines, from a pure Torah perspective, as presented eloquently by a contemporary Chasidic rebbe.
