Torah Portion #31 Emor (Leviticus 21:1-24:23)
In this Torah Portion more instructions are listed that carry on the theme of holiness which we have been considering in the past few Torah portions.
Called into a priestly service for the Most High, the people of Israel continue to receive more instructions about how to maintain a state of separateness before the Creator.
Yahweh gives His people more details on what it means to be a holy nation and a kingdom of priests. He really does want them to be “holy ones,” in all they do.
Also given this week are the instructions for the appointed times.
