First Fruits

Adat Shalom


A Conservative

first-fruit ceremony that
everything is a gift, during
the seder night we come to
understand that our children,
our first-fruits, are also a gift
from God. We are not the
owners. And the message is
that children cannot be con-
trolled or coerced; they must
be taught and inspired — as
we witness at the seder.
The generations survive,
and I'm sure that this is in no
small measure because of
many such dialogues between

parents and children. Only
last week an opportunity
arose to attend a nets re'vaii
ceremony here in Efrat, and
along with other neighbors,
after the redemption with a
coin and a blessing, we tasted
the sweet grapes from the
new vines. Even a city boy
like me could feel that we
were moving closer to the day
when we'd again be bringing
our first-fruits to the Holy
Temple in Jerusalem. May it
be speedily and in our time.
