Welcome To Bais Mordechai

The hope of this site is to be educational and inspirational. I see the Torah as an instruction manual given to us by a benevolent Father in heaven to help us navigate our lives, with stories and examples for us to learn from.
BIBLE = Book of Instruction By which to Live on Earth
FROG = Forever Rely On G-d
Frogs only jump forward not backward. So too must we continue to move forward in our quest for spirituality and contentment.

Chp. 32 verses 1 - 17: Introduction, Moshe begins his poetic message with a call to heaven and earth to witness his words. He praises Hashem and His justice. He tells them how Hashem had chosen the older generation from among the nations. He cared for them in the wilderness and carried and guarded them as an eagle watches over it's young.

Chp. 32 verses 17 - 52: He continues with his message. That in later generations they may turn to other objects to worship. Consequently, Hashem will repay their lack of appreciation with the denial of His favor. His punishments will be disease and the cruelty of the enemy. His only concern will be that the enemy should not gloat which will prevent the complete annihilation of the nation. Israel should then realize that their survival is totally dependent upon Hashem and their obedience. After completing this address Moshe was told to ascend Mount Nevo so that he would be able to see the Promised Land before he died.
