Weekly Torah Portion: Shabbat Tetzaveh

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

In this Torah portion, God appoints Aaron and his sons as priests. God describes the priestly clothing and explains how to properly sanctify the priests. Aaron is commanded to make incense offerings to God every morning on an altar. God explains that once a year Aaron will make an offering on that altar to atone for all of the Israelites’ sins.
