Aliya Summary: The Jews are instructed to gather large stones when they cross the Jordan River. These stones were to be plastered, and the entire Torah was to be engraved upon them. Another set of stones was also to be inscribed with the entire Torah, and be set on Mt. Ebal.

Moshe, the kohanim and Leviim, say to all the people, “on this very day you have become G-d’s nation”. Rashi says that the Torah emphasized “this very day” to teach us that our commitment to Torah and mitzvot should be as if we have entered into a covenant with G-d on this very day – everyday. We are challenged to refreshen our Judaism constantly.
