The Torah Read Aloud Every Seven Years

                                             Deut. 31:9-31:13                                            

וַיִּכְתֹּב מֹשֶׁה אֶת־הַתֹּורָה הַזֹּאת וַיִּתְּנָהּ אֶל־הַכֹּהֲנִים בְּנֵי לֵוִי הַנֹּשְׂאִים אֶת־אֲרֹון בְּרִית יְהוָה וְאֶל־כָּל־זִקְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל

Deut. 31:9   And Moses wrote this Torah and gave it to the priests, the sons of Levi who were carrying the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and to all the elders of Israel.

וַיְצַו מֹשֶׁה אֹותָם לֵאמֹר מִקֵּץ שֶׁבַע שָׁנִים בְּמֹעֵד שְׁנַת הַשְּׁמִטָּה בְּחַג הַסֻּכֹּות

Deut. 31:10   And Moses commanded them saying, “After the end of seven years, in the set time of the year of release, during the Feast of Tabernacles,

בְּבֹוא כָל־יִשְׂרָאֵל לֵרָאֹות אֶת־פְּנֵי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ בַּמָּקֹום אֲשֶׁר יִבְחָר תִּקְרָא אֶת־הַתֹּורָה הַזֹּאת

נֶגֶד כָּל־יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּאָזְנֵיהֶם

Deut. 31:11   with the coming of all Israel to discern the presence of the Lord, your God, in the place that He shall choose, you shall recite this Torah before all Israel in their ears.”

הַקְהֵל אֶת־הָעָם הָאֲנָשִׁים וְהַנָּשִׁים וְהַטַּף וְגֵרְךָ אֲשֶׁר בִּשְׁעָרֶיךָ לְמַעַן יִשְׁמְעוּ וּלְמַעַן יִלְמְדוּ וְיָרְאוּ

אֶת־יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם וְשָׁמְרוּ לַעֲשֹׂות אֶת־כָּל־דִּבְרֵי הַתֹּורָה הַזֹּאת

Deut. 31:12   “Assemble the people, the men and the women and the children and your guests who will be within your gates so that they may hear and so that they may learn and they may revere the Lord, your God, and they may take heed to do all the words of this Torah,

וּבְנֵיהֶם אֲשֶׁר לֹא־יָדְעוּ יִשְׁמְעוּ וְלָמְדוּ לְיִרְאָה אֶת־יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם כָּל־הַיָּמִים אֲשֶׁר אַתֶּם חַיִּים עַל־

הָאֲדָמָה אֲשֶׁר אַתֶּם עֹבְרִים אֶת־הַיַּרְדֵּן שָׁמָּה לְרִשְׁתָּהּ

Deut. 31:13   and their children, who will not know, will hear and learn to revere the Lord, your God, all the days that you will be living on the land where you will be crossing the Jordan to possess it.”
