Leviticus 9:1 – 11:47; Numeri 19 | | Ezekiel 36:16-38

    Video Commentary by Rabbi Chaim Richman of The Temple Institute, Jerusalem:
    “You are what you eat.” This modern catchphrase finds its most perfect expression in the concluding verses of parashat Shmini: “For I am the Lord your G-d, and you shall sanctify yourselves and be holy, because I am holy.” (Lev. 11:44) This is the only reason offered for the long list of living creatures that we can and can’t eat that precedes it. We can bring a taste of the Holy Temple to our own tables by regarding every morsel we place within our mouths as no less real than an offering upon the altar.

    Shabbat Shalom!

Since my secession from the Church in 2009, my Jewish Orthodox friends in Israel and I have been following the Fake News of Rome in articles and political Shabbat commentaries on GSI (God's Sabbath Int.). The former Pontiff destroyed the dwelling place of God, the temple in Jerusalem – fact! Was the New Testament and the Church just a world dominance inspired business idea of Rome? What is politics today? Enjoy your trip on GSI.
