Each week The Arty Semite connects the Torah reading — however tenuously — to a classic work of rock ‘n’ roll.

In this week’s parsha, Haazinu, Moses calls Heaven and Earth to witness his final testimony, warning the Jewish People not to stray from the path of the Torah. After his speech Moses is commanded to ascend Mt. Nevo — his final resting place.

The “song” is finally over.
