The first topic of Parshat Ki Tavo is the mitzvah Bikkurim, the first fruits, which the farmer was obligated to bring to the Temple in Jerusalem on the occasion of Shavuot. He makes a declaration of thanksgiving but also includes a reference to our suffering in Egypt. Rabbi Munk explains that even in times of intense joy and accomplishment like this, it is important to remember that there are no guarantees in life so one's pride should be held in check.

How many of us were riding high not so long ago and then kicked to the carpet in a relatively short period? Thus, with God's help, as we emerge whole again we should never forget how quickly things can turn around.

Friday night the Gutierrez family and the Konigsberg family will sponsor a mezze platter as Robert Konigsberg will observe yahrtzeit for his father and Deborah Gutierrez welcomes her parents from Mexico City.

Saturday, Chava Chalom will sponsor a sweet table for the upcoming yahrtzeit of her father Mayer Chalom. At Kiddush, Tehillim will be recited. She is also sponsoring security for the month of Elul and a gala breakfast Monday morning when we will recite the memorial prayer for Mayer ben Eliyahu HaLevi V'Esther Z"l. Mayer would often say, in his beautiful accent, "You're living, eh!" "Enjoy!"  It would be great if we could exchange those greetings this Shabbat. 

Next week we begin reciting Selichot, every morning at 7am.
