Aliya Summary: Moshe and Joshua teach this song to the Israelites. Moshe implores the people: “Pay close attention to this: it isn’t an empty teaching; it is our life, and with it we will long endure on our land.” G‑d then tells Moshe to climb up Mount Nevo, from where he will view the land of Israel from afar before he passes away.

Only if we make the Torah our life will we be worthy of occupying the land which G-d gave us. It’s not a right, it’s a privilege we need to constantly earn.
