Shabbat Chol Ha’ Mo’ed Sukkot: A Summary

Shabbat Chol Ha’ Mo’ed Sukkot: A Summary

Moshe pleads to the Almighty to “make known to me Your ways.” The Almighty commands Moshe to carve two stone tablets to replace the Tablets that Moshe destroyed bearing the 10 Commandments. Moshe carves them and ascends Mt. Sinai. The Almighty descends in a cloud and reveals to Moshe the 13 Attributes of Divine Mercy which are constantly repeated in the Yom Kippur prayers. Moshe asks the Almighty to “forgive our transgressions and make us Your Heritage”.

The Almighty responds that He shall seal a covenant with us. The Almighty then warns the Jewish people against idol worship (idolatry is believing that anything other than the Almighty has power). The reading ends with the Almighty commanding us to keep the Festivals — Pesach, Shavuot and Sukkot.
