Challah for V’Zot Haberakhah

The death of Moses.

Commentary on Parashat Vezot Haberakhah, Deuteronomy 33:1 - 34:12

Every week, Julie Seltzer, artist and Torah scribe, bakes a challah depicting an aspect of the week’s Torah portion.

 

 

And Moses went up from the plains of Moab unto mount Nebo, to the top of Pisgah…and Moses the servant of God died there. (Deuteronomy 34:1,5)


וַיַּעַל משֶׁה מֵעַרְבת מוֹאָב, אֶל-הַר נְבוֹ, ראשׁ הַפִּסְגָּה…וַיָּמָת שָׁם משֶׁה עֶבֶד-יְהוָה


death of moses

In the last parashah of the Torah, Moses dies. Here we see Moses in the light of day, at the top of the mountain, laying down to die–he will not get to see the Promised Land.
