Will We Listen? (Parshat Ki Tavo, Deuteronomy 26:1-29:8)

By Rabbi Adina Allen

(Ki Tavo, Deuteronomy 26:1-29:8)

In this week’s parsha, Moses sets two paths before the Israelites as they prepare to enter the land. Introducing these two paths, Moses says, “If you listen, listen to the voice of Adonai your God” all blessings will follow, however, “if you do not listen to God’s voice” then every curse will ensue. What is the voice of God and what does it mean to listen to this voice?
