Naso(Lift) Numbers (B’Midbar) 4-7

Torah Portion Naso(Lift) Numbers (B’Midbar) 4-7

Haftorah Reading: Judges 13:2-25
 
Tonight our Torah portion is named Naso. It covers the census of the people, followed by a listing of the material making up the Mishkan and who was responsible to carry each piece. It also covers the laws pertaining to the Nazarite vow, the suspected unfaithful wife and the bringing of the gifts by the princes of Israel and ending with the priestly blessing.

Emor(Speak) Lev. (Vayikra) 21-24

Torah Portion Emor(Speak) Leviticus (Vayikra) 21-24

Haftorah Reading Ezekiel 44:15-31

Tonight we read a parasha that covers a variety of subjects. It covers commandments pertaining to the priests and how they are to live, who they are to marry and how they go about their duties.  One entire chapter covers the appointed times set by the Father. It is here where I want us to spend a bit of our time tonight.  I also want us to talk about the commandments covering the leaving of the edges of your crops and why G-d repeats this commandment when it was covered in last week’s scripture.

Acharei Mot(After the death) and Kedoshim( Holy People) Leviticus (Vayikra) 16-20

Torah Portion Acharei Mot(After the death) and Kedoshim( Holy People) Leviticus (Vayikra) 16-20

Haftorah Reading Ezekiel 22:1-19 and Ezekiel 20:2-20

Tonight we again read two Torah portions. However for our study I would like to mainly look at the second of the two, Kedoshim or Holy People. The word for what is translated as holy is in the plural form, signifying that it applies to us all and that it is to distinguish G-d’s people from the world. Another meaning, or really the primary meaning of the word is to separate out. So when G-d says He is holy what can we understand from that? He is unlike any other so called god. He stands alone. He is recognizable by His characteristics.
