Highlights from the Parsha: Parshat Ha’azinu

The penultimate parsha of the entire Torah is unique among all the rest, in that it is the only parasha which is almost entirely written in poetic form. Traditionally written in two columns, consisting of seventy sentences (according to Rambam, 68 sentences) and 613 letters, Haazinu is an exquisite prophecy that records the entire future course of Jewish history, from the time of the entering into the Land, until the arrival of the Messiah. According to kabbalistic tradition, the name of every Jew in history is encoded in Ha’azinu.
