TORAH PORTION
 
Ki Tavo ... When You Enter [the Land]
Deuteronomy 26:1-29:8
When you enter the land that the Eternal your God is giving you as a heritage, and you possess it and settle in it, you shall take some of every first fruit of the soil, which you harvest from the land that the Eternal your God is giving to you, put it in a basket and go to the place where the Eternal your God will choose to establish the divine name. - Deuteronomy 26:1-2

 

SUMMARY: 

  • The Israelites are instructed to express their gratitude to God for
    their bountiful harvests and freedom from slavery by tithing ten percent of their crops for the Levite, the stranger, the orphan,
    and the widow. (26)
  • The people are told to display on large stones God's commandments for all to see. (27:1-8)
  • The Levites are to proclaim curses upon those who violate God's commandments. (27:15-26)
  • The Israelites are told that if they obey God's mitzvot faithfully, they will receive every blessing imaginable. They are also told that if do not fulfill their brit with God, many curses will descend upon them. (28:1-69)
  • Moses reminds the Israelites of the miracles they witnessed in the wilderness and commands them to observe the terms of the covenant so that they may succeed in all that they undertake. (29:1-8)

Shabbat Candle Lighting 7:36 pm on Friday, September 8, 2017

 

There have been a great number of storms over the past week,
both figuratively and literally. Harvey, Irma pending, and politics here and around the world are causing us to unite.
 
This is all happening just two week before the start of the High Holiday season - Yamim Noraim - the Days of Awe. Storms give
us pause; the power of man and nature to change the world. 
Have you changed your world this past year? Now is the time
to start reflecting on the past year and to make plans for the
coming one.
 
The High Holiday services at CNT will help you to do that.
Please sign up for your High Holiday service tickets on the
web site or the link below:
 
We look forward to seeing you.
 
Michael Gutenstein
President
