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.

This week we read two portions of scripture that have mainly to do with the disease of leprosy. In our world today medical science has eradicated this disease so the question is why bother with a subject that is no longer relevant in our world? The Torah is less concerned about the actual disease than the spiritual lessons behind it.

Today we read a very exciting Torah portion or at least it should be exciting. The first services are to be held in the newly completed Mishkan. Aaron and his sons are offering the offerings before G-d Almighty and the fire of G-d devours the offering. The people gave a shout and fell down before the L-rd and so ended chapter 9.
