Daily Aliya for Ekev, Shvii (7th Aliya)

Aliya Summary: Moshe informs the Israelites that if they follow G‑d’s ways and cleave to Him, they will easily occupy the land of Israel, and no man will stand up against them.

The “deal” that the Parsha began with is repeated at its conclusion – If we will keep all the mitzvot, motivated by a love of G-d; if we follow in his footsteps (by performing acts of kindness) and cling to Him… then we will prevail against mightier nations than ourselves. The Parsha concludes with promises of successful conquest of the Land – if we keep our side of the deal.
