Vayeilech (Deuteronomy 31:1 – 31:30)

Courtesy of Julie Seltzer and

We continue reading about Moses’ last day on earth, a tale that has taken up several parshiot – more (I think) than any other narrative arc in the Torah.

At the start of the portion this week, according to the JPS, Moses says: “I am now one hundred and twenty years old, I can no longer be active.”

Fox translates this line as: “A hundred and twenty years old am I today; I am no longer able to go-out and to come-in”

Either way, we are hearing about a man who recognizes he is nearing the end of his days.

SO… limited only by your creativity and the category of food which we will assign (when you let us know if you can join us), please bring a “twilight food”.

Not sure what this Torah portion is about? You can find a brief summary in The Edible Torah’s “Condensed Guide to the Weekly Torah Readings”. For more information on what The Edible Torah is all about, along with insight on how to set up a pot-luck Shabbat experience, check out “The Edible Torah”.
