פָּרָשָׁת כִּי תָבוֹא
Parshas Ki Savo
דְּבָרִים / Devarim / Deuteronomy 26:1-29:8

[ 1 ]

When into Israel you all will soon go in,
Don't eat the first fruits of the seeds you'll be sowin'
First, to Hashem something big is still owin'
To bring your __________ to give to the kohen!

[ 2 ]

Did he wander lost, was he cruelly destroyed?
For years, this passuk’s kept teachers employed.
With very different meanings, it’s oodles of fun,
And we point the blame straight at __________!
(what does it say about him?)

image [ 3 ]

The levi'im must shout out their blessings and curses
Good things and bad things, all manner of verses,
For brachos on Har Grizim, six shvatim must stand
Then six more on Har __________ for the great reprimand.

[ 4 ]

Two times in the Torah, Hashem warns of his wrath
A message to Jews who might stray from His path
If we keep the Torah, he'll send us all bracha
But twice he has warned us with words of __________.

[ 5 ] BONUS!

It’s not enough to write on one,
No, not until it’s twelve you’ve done;
Then again, skip brevity,
Write not in one but seventy!  What are they?

STUMPED?? Here are some answers: 
[ 1 ] Bikkurim / first fruits (26:2)
[ 2 ] Lavan, the Aramean, who tried to kill Yaakov (Rashi 26:5).  Interestingly, almost every “Orthodox” chumash translates the verse this way though most other meforshim interpret the verse to mean that Yaakov was a wandering, poor, tormented or enslaved Aramean.
[ 3 ] Eyval (27:13).
[ 4 ] Tochacha – rebuke (its root means “proof”)
[ 5 ] These are the “huge stones” Moshe ordered Yehoshua to write: twelve sets with the Torah written in 70 languages (Rashi 27:8), symbolizing all known languages at the time.

Ancient Auction Secret: If Chinese auctions are racist, why do Jews love them so much?

Ah, Jews, Jews, Jews, Jews.  You sure do love your Chinese auctions, don’t you? It seems that even in an era of political correctness, within certain circles, this term just will not die . And frankly, I’m mortified. I’m not Chinese, but I have family who is Chinese.  Some are Korean, as well.  I guess this makes us more ethnically diverse than many Jews, but I suspect most Jewish families are moving in this direction.  Still.  Even if we don’t know a single Chinese person, we should still stop calling it that. First of all… is it actually racist to call it a Chinese auction? I figured I’d let Chinese people decide.  But when I turned to Google to find out how Chinese people feel about Chinese auctions, what I found was mostly… nothing.  Silence.  I did find some debate (presumably among non-Chinese people) over whether it was too far in the direction of political correctness to refer to these as a “silent auction” or (as in some parts of the States) a “tricky tray.”  (Ok
