Summary of Today's Chumash
The seventh aliyah is the last aliyah in the Torah. Here, Moshe rabenu climbs up to the top of mount Nevo on a cliff opposite Jericho. G-d shows Moshe all of the land of Israel. Then Moshe passes away on the seventh of Adar and is buried in an unknown place. He is 120 years old when he passes away, and the Jewish people mourn him for 30 days. The Torah says that no other prophet has arisen like Moshe who knew G-d face to face.
