Torah Notes by Stan Beiner (Head of SSDS) Ki Tavo
There are many ways to remember the message of a Torah portion like…Show Tunes!
(sung to My Favorite Things)
The Torah is clear in its preference for First Fruit
Remember our God is whose horn that you first toot
The purpose is giving our thanks to the Lord
By bringing the best and not trying to hoard.
Bee-KU-room is Hebrew for the very first PRO-duce
Sort of like charging the farmers fair share dues
The fruit went to Levites who didn’t own land
Sharing the bounty was part of the plan
Think of desert
Rejoice that we’re out of the sand
And simply remember to give God your thanks
Obey the Bi-KU-rim plan
At first there was Mishkan* where people brought yummies
Thank heaven for bounty and fill the priests’ tummies
Then it was Temple where farmers brought stuff
Parades and processions- oh my, what a fuss!
*Mishkan- Portable sanctuary carried through the desert until the Israelites decided enough was enough, entered the land, built the Temple, and retired the Mishkan.
So, the bottom line here is that we need to remember to be grateful for the gifts we are given and not take things for granted. And also Rodgers and Hammerstein were geniuses.
