was immense, and was intended
to provide us with a way to pri-
oritize our lives. Our ancestors
brought their very first fruits, the
best of their resources, to God as
a symbol of their priorities in life.
Let us learn the beautiful lesson
of bikhurim, "the first to God and
Judaism." In so doing, we shall
bring meaning to our lives and
blessings to our people. ❑
