Daily Aliya for Ki Tavo, Shlishi (3rd Aliya)

Aliya Summary: Moshe admonishes the Jews to observe G‑d’s commandments; reminding them that they have selected Him to be their god, and He, in turn, has chosen them to be His holy and treasured nation.

To follow in G-d’s footsteps means to develop and practice various traits that are attributed to G-d. As He is called merciful, so too shall we be merciful. As He is called holy, so too must we behave in ways that lead to our becoming holy. From general traits, we can also use specific examples – as G-d clothes the naked, visits the sick, buries the dead, comforts the grieving… so too must we do those kinds of things.
