Moshe continues his speech, promising that with the observance of mitzvot, they will prosper and grow in the promised land. He reminds them of their continued rebellions and complaining (hence the name of this week’s Itche Kadoozy video, “We whined a lot“).

Moshe tells them about the land they will soon enter, and to destroy all of the idols to help them realize that Hashem got them here. There are lots and lots of foods mentioned in this parsha.

The second paragraph of the Shema is here as well, with a repetition of some key mitzvot and a promise for rewards or punishment dependent upon observance of mitzvot.

LinksHere are the AishTorah.org, and Chabad pages on Eikev. Here are some coloring sheets, a parsha song, a fun video from Itche Kadoozy, and a parsha challenge.
