Vaykra Text Message

Parashat Vaykra (G-d called Moses)

Humiliation is not a nice feeling. Those who are humiliated will forever remember the way they felt.
The Torah in this parasha teaches us a great lesson.
The same place where those who brought an offering to G-d, was used for those who brought a sacrifice to cleanse the sins.
Therefore, if you were an outsider, you would never know who was a sinner. Everybody was equal and nobody could be singled out and humiliated.
When we hear that we can humiliate eachother without consequences, we need to know that this practice was discouraged thousands of years ago.

In memory of my beloved mother and teacher Miriam Rachel bat Israel Itzchak Z"L
