What We Discussed: Ki Tavo

Posted on August 30, 2021

Shalom TBAY!

Wondering what we discussed this past Shabbat? Here is a link to Friday Night’s D’Var Torah: Sharing Our Yield to Address Childhood Hunger.

On Saturday, we explored the language the Israelites are supposed to recite when bringing the first fruits in the land of Israel to the priests: “My father was a fugitive Aramean.” We discussed which patriarch this refers and how different translations – lost, fugitive, about to perish – impact our understanding. We also noted that it is discussed here, but that this is the language we use at the Passover Seder.  You can view the Source Sheet here.

Shavua Tov!
