Parashat Vayeilech is the 52nd weekly Torah portion in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading.

Torah Portion: Deuteronomy 31:1-31:30

Vayeilech (“He Went”) opens as Moses tells the Israelites that he will not lead them into the Land of Israel, and that Joshua will take over. He instructs the Israelites to gather and read Torah publicly every seven years. At God’s command, Moses writes a poem bearing witness to God’s covenant with the Israelites. [1]
