Weekly Torah Portion: Shabbat Tzav

Every week, JTS (Jewish Theological Seminary) sends out new commentaries created by their faculty, students and staff.

In this Torah portion, God continues to describe the different laws of sacrifices. A distinction is made between sin offerings, burnt offerings, and homage offerings, with each following its own process. God then commands the priests to make another offering that ordains themselves in their positions.

Print a copy to discuss during Shabbat dinner with your family & friends.
