Torah Portion: Ki Tavo (When You Come) D’Varim (Deuteronomy) 26:1-29:8
Haftorah Reading Yesha’yahu (Isaiah) 60:1-22
Tonight, we read the Torah portion Ki Tavo. This portion begins with the bringing of the First Fruits offering. This offering was to be distributed to the priests, Levites and the poor. You also might notice each person was to recite the words of D’Varim/Deut. 26:5-10. One effect of this declaration was to solidify in the minds of the people who they were and where their harvest came from. They were part of a people who stretched back to Avraham and G-d’s promises.
