 A Summary of the Parashah

God instructs Moses regarding the 

procedures for the Day of

 Atonement; sexual prohibitions

  are then listed.

The Lord spoke to Moses after the

 death of the two sons of Aaron

who died when they drew too close to the 

presence of the Lord. God said, "Tell

 our brother Aaron that he is not to come at 

will into the Shrine behind the curtain

, in front of the cover that is upon the ark. Instead,

 Aaron shall only enter the holy

 Shrine when he is clean and dressed in

 his sacred garments. He shall take

 animal offerings to make atonement for

 himself and his household. He shall purge

 he Shrine of the uncleanness and transgression

of the Israelites, whatever their 

sins; and he shall do the same for

the Tent of Meeting and make it holy

The Second Weekly TORAH Portion

God tells Moses to give the people a series of ethical and ritual laws instructing them in how to be holy.

The Lord has just told Moses to tell the Israelites about the
 law commanding an annual Day of Atonement and sexual prohibitions
. The Lord told Moses, Speak to the whole Israelite community and say to them:
You shall be holy, for I, the Lord your God, am holy. You shall each
 revere your mother and your father, and keep My Sabbaths
. Do not turn to idols or make molten gods for yourselves. I, the Lord, am your God.

As the great flood story begins,

 we learn that Noah was “a

 righteous man; in his generation

 he was above reproach”

Genesis 6:9) and we wonder what

 ind of compliment has 

Noah just been paid. After all, what

 does it mean to be the

most righteous person in a


 so wicked as to be

 rowned for the depths of its sin? 

It is a careful comparison to

 be sure, but in the end we know

 only this:

Noah was a

righteous man.
