What We Discussed: Emor

Posted on May 3, 2021

Shalom TBAY!

Wondering what we discussed this past Shabbat? Here is a link to Friday Night’s D’Var Torah on Making Every Day Count. On Saturday, we discussed the very problematic section of this week’s portion dealing with the requirement that the priests offering sacrifices be completely free from any physical “defect.” We discussed why this would be in the text and how we can reinterpret it through a more modern lens. We also discussed the confronting sociological research on implicit bias and were challenged to watch where this appears in our own lives and encounters. Here is a link to the source sheet.

Shavua Tov!
