Like the fire that always burned on the altar, we should make sure that our nner fires of compassion always inspire us to work for justice for all of humanity. 
Tzav is only the second parashah in Leviticus, but already we are immersed in the sacrificial rites. In great detail we read the instructions for sacrificing burnt offerings, meal offerings, sin offerings, guilt offerings, and the like. In the second half of the portion, we read how Moses enacted the sacrificial rite by which Aaron and his sons were anointed as priests. MORE>
* Tzav *
a summary of the portion

God tells Moses to describe the rituals for some of the offerings to the priests; the priests then undergo the process of ordination.
God spoke to Moses, saying: Command Aaron and his sons to do the following rituals.
This is the ritual of the burnt offering. The burnt offering shall remain burning upon the altar all night until morning. Every morning the priest shall feed wood to it, lay out the burnt offering on it and turn the fat into smoke. A perpetual fire shall be kept burning on the altar for the fire is not to go out.
a summary of the haftarah

Samuel I 15:2-34
Parashat Zakhor is read on the Shabbat before Purim every year. It includes a verse commanding us not to forget Amalek, the tribe who attacked the Israelites just after they came out of Egypt. In addition to its regular place in the Torah, in Parashat Ki Tetze, Parashat Zakhor is read on the Shabbat before Purim because the villain of the Purim story, Haman, is said to be a descendent of Amalek. Hearing Parashat Zakhor in synagogue is considered the fulfillment of the mitzvah not to forget Amalek
