The good, the bad and the blessing. It’s all here in parashat Ki Tavo. From the sublime perfect moment of being alive in G-d’s Holy Temple, first-fruits in hand, heart overflowing with joy and gratitude, declaring our recognition of G-d’s hand in every thing we do and every soul we touch, to the nightmare wasteland of the admonitions. Joy, community, thankfulness? Helplessness, despair, isolation? The choice is ours.
