This Week's Torah Portion: Ki Tavo
Parashat HaShavuah
 
 
 
 

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)

Wednesday Theology Class

The Wednesday Theology class is in the advanced stages of being planned.  This year we will study a most meaningful text, Pirke Avot with a distinctly spiritual slant and social justice lens. You will find it engaging and, best of all, useful in your own lives.  The class meets on Wednesdays at 10 am and, when the final calendar is done, I will get the information to everyone on the Elijah list.  

We will be studying from the new Pirkei Avot book which can be found at this link.
