Ekev 5781 – Memory as a constructive process

The book of Devarim has a special relationship to the rest of the Torah, rooted in the faculty of memory. Memory is more than a passive revisiting of what was, it is also an active construction of who we are and perhaps want to be. Parashat Ekev offers two powerful illustrations of this role that memory can play as a constructive process.
