Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
What are the 7 elements to the Bikkurim pilgrimage?
וְעַתָּ֗ה הִנֵּ֤ה הֵבֵ֙אתִי֙ אֶת־רֵאשִׁית֙ פְּרִ֣י הָאֲדָמָ֔ה אֲשֶׁר־נָתַ֥תָּה לִּ֖י יְהוָ֑ה וְהִנַּחְתּ֗וֹ לִפְנֵי֙ יְהוָ֣ה אֱלֹהֶ֔יךָ וְהִֽשְׁתַּחֲוִ֔יתָ לִפְנֵ֖י יְהוָ֥ה אֱלֹהֶֽיךָ׃
Wherefore I now bring the first fruits of the soil which You, O LORD, have given me.” You shall leave it before the LORD your God and bow low before the LORD your God.
There were 7 elements to the Bikkurim pilgrimage:
To bring the bikkurim to the Temple
To present them in a container or basket
To recite the Declaration of Thanks
To sacrifice a peace offering.
The chanting of Psalms by the Leviim
To lift and wave the basket
To remain in Jerusalem until the next morning.
(Mishne Torah Hilchot Bikkurim 3:12-14)
