Choosing an Ending to the Torah: Moses' Death, or Entrance into the Land of Israel

By Norman Cohen

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), December 2008

Cohen discusses the ending to the Torah, contemplating whether an alternative ending that includes the entrance to the Land of Israel and a completion of the journey from slavery to freedom in their own land, a fulfillment of God's promise to the people, would better affirm people's faith in the future as well as serve as an ideological statement on the importance of the connection to Israel.
