Ki Savo – Hearing the Call

What is the idea of Moshe ‘calling’ to all of the people of Israel? Why does this phrase appear in our parsha, in speaking about the miracles of the 40 years in the wilderness, and also in the context of the revelation at Sinai? Why is the word ‘kriah’ – ‘calling’ also used in the context of reading from the Torah? Why do the 3 verses read correspond to Avraham, Yitzchak and Yakov; or Moshe, Aharon and Miriam? What is the idea that Hashem only calls to all of the people of Israel, and none can be missing? Why does a teacher need everyone to be there before the class begins? Why did Hashem call to Moshe from the top of the mountain, and why did Moshe emulate this calling, as well?
