Key Savo – When You Will Come

The Torah Reading “Key Savo” – ” When You Will Come” contains the heavy duty curses if we do not follow the Torah Laws. That portion is generally read quickly and not overly loud.

We have the Torah Reading contain a list of curses twice. The first time is in the last section of Vayikra called Bichukosi – “In My Statutes”. This second round has twice as many. We are told that this alludes to the destruction of the two temples. The second destruction and exile being far longer than the first one.

It is very interesting to note that the destruction of the 2nd Temple was due to the lack of Ahavas Yisroel – The Love of a Fellow Jew. The Shabbos of Key Savo falls out on the birthday of Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov whose main philosophy stressed the Mitva, commandment of Ahavas Yisroel – The Love of a Fellow Jew. As we leave this special Shabbos may we be blessed to fulfill the Baal Shem Tov’s philosophy and Love our Fellow Jew so that we may experience the end of Exile and the building of the 3rd Temple
