Ki Tavo - en bref

Deutéronome 26, 1 - 29, 8

Moïse enseigne au peuple : « Quand tu entreras sur la terre que D.ieu te donne en héritage éternel, que tu t’y installeras et que tu la cultiveras, tu apporteras les premiers fruits (bikourim) de tes vergers au Saint Temple, et tu déclareras ta gratitude pour tout ce que D.ieu a fait pour toi. »

La paracha comprend aussi les lois relatives aux dîmes dues aux Lévites et aux pauvres. Elle détaille les instructions quant à la manière de prononcer les bénédictions et malédictions du haut du Mont Grizim et du Mont Ebal évoquées au début de la paracha de Reeh. Moïse rappelle aux Israélites qu’ils sont le peuple choisi par D.ieu et que, réciproquement, ils ont fait le choix de D.ieu.

La dernière partie de Ki Tavo contient des paroles d’avertissement. Après avoir énuméré les bénédictions par lesquelles D.ieu récompensera le peuple quand il accomplira les Commandements de la Torah, Moïse rapporte longuement les terribles conséquences de leur abandon : maladie, famine, pauvreté, exil.

Moïse conclut en déclarant qu’en ce jour, quarante ans après leur naissance en tant que peuple, les Israélites sont parvenus à avoir « un cœur pour savoir, des yeux pour voir, des oreilles pour entendre ».(Chabad.org)

 

 

How to prepare for Rosh Hashana

The Shulchan Aruch discusses the proper way to prepare for the holidays. He writes that it is an obligation for every person to prepare the prayers prior to the holidays. This means going through the Mahzor in advance, reviewing the prayers and their meanings, so that on Rosh Hashana (and other days as well) one is more fluent or more comfortable in reading and understanding the prayers. Part of the reason for this is that we must remember that the prayers are not incantations. These are real words that we say when we speak to God. They are the words that our Chachamim chose for us to use in our communication with God. Saying them without understanding them would be like going to the queen of the Netherlands, having a special audience with her majesty, and reading an entire book of petitions to her in Dutch but having no idea what you are telling her or asking her. It seems pretty silly to do. Of course, we are not all fluent in Hebrew, and therefore preparing as much as we can, at the very least preparing the amida of Shaharit and musaf. Wishing everyone a wonderful new year and wonderful holiday next week with meaningful and productive prayers.

 

 

MITZVAT HA BIKOURIM

The Mitzva of Bikurim has essentially 3 commandments attached to it. The first mitzvah is to separate out the bikurim, first produce (like a bechor) of the shivat haminim (wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranate, olives, dates). and bring it to Jerusalem. The second command is that the Kohen may not eat it outside of Jerusalem and the 3rd command is that the person bringing it recites the appropriate passage when bringing the bikurim. The Bikurim were brought starting with Shavuot but extending all the way to sukkot and even until Hanukah was possible.

The Mitzva to bring Bikurim only applied in the time of the Temple. A farmer would go out to his field and select the newest and best fruit and would mark them to bring to Jerusalem as Bikurim. There is no set amount how many of the fruit he marks as the first ones but it was customary to designate about 1.7% of the field as bikurim. He brings it to the Temple and it is given as one of the 24 gifts to the Kohanim. Only they are allowed to eat it and they must eat it in Jerusalem.

All in all there are 7 requirements that need to happen when the bikurim are brought. 1)they need to be brought to Jerusalem, 2)They have to be brought in a vessel, preferably each fruit in its own vessel. Metal vessels are returned to the owner but baskets would be kept by the kohanim. 3)the owner must recite the paragraph arami oved avi (women and hermaphrodites don’t) 4)he also brings a separate korban with the fruit. They would bring pigeons and doves and give some to the kohanim and some would be sacrificed. 5)When the fruit would arrive in the azara, the leviim would start singing tehillim 30:2 (the one we today say before hashem melech and on Hanuka). 6)the Kohen would have to waive (tenufa) the fruit basket with the bikurim in it. It is lifted by the Kohen and the owner and moved in several directions. This is part of the service of the bikurim. 7)sleep-over: The owner must stay the night in Jerusalem and should not leave till the morning and then can go back home. Now you know pretty everything you need to know about the bikurim service. You have always heard the term bikurim, now you actually know what it is
