Dvar Torah  
Parshat Eikev

This week the Parsha of Eikev, Moshe continues his charge to the Bnai
Yisrael, particularly to the new generation about to enter into the
land of Israel.  He continues to remind them that as long as they
continue to observe the Torah, Hashem will protect them from
destruction at the hands of our enemies.  The rewards are simple; a
land flowing with milk and honey, combined with prosperity, health, and

Moshe continues and reminds us that no Jew may say "my power and the
might of my hand got me this wealth."  We must always realize that the
best rewards are not in the stores and material things but in the
soul. "And now, Israel, what does the Lord require of us but to fear the
Lord, Hashem, and walk-in all His ways, and to love Him, and serve
Hashem with all our hearts and all our souls, and to keep the
commandments and statutes."  "Therefore, impress these words upon your
very hearts, bind them as a sign on your very hand, and let them serve
as a symbol on your forehead.  Teach them to your children, reciting
them when you stay at home and when you are away when you lie down
and when you get up, and inscribe them upon your gates, to the end
that you and your children may endure as long as there is a heaven
over the earth."

The Parsha concludes with the promise that if Israel takes heed of
these words, every place that we set foot upon will be ours, and no
man will be able to stand up against us.
