This week's Torah portion of Ki Tavo begins with Moshe's vision of the indescribable joy of bringing the first fruits of the Land of Israel to the Holy Temple.

Yet this parasha also includes the difficult admonitions, dire warnings of what is in store for the people of Israel should they break their covenant with Hashem.

This week's Temple Talk explores the fine nuances of the portion of Ki Tavo against the backdrop of the midway point in the month of Elul, with its intense spiritual messages and challenges as we enter into high gear in preparation for the upcoming Days of Awe.
