This parsha comes at the end of the Torah's book of Deuteronomy and includes Moses' final blessing of the people of the twelve tribes of Israel. The portion also marks the beginning of Joshua's leadership.
The portion consists of Deuteronomy 33-34.
Alternative spellings: V'zot HaBracha, V'Zot Habracha
Reading of this portion is often paired with the reading of Bereshit to reflect the lesson that we are never done reading the Torah, so it is not really an end.
