PARASHAT KEDOSHIM

 

This is the portion that invokes the Jewish people to be holy! It then proceeds with the spiritual directions on how to achieve holiness, closeness to the Almighty. Within it lie the secrets and the prescription for Jewish continuity. If any group of people is to survive as an entity, it must have common values and goals, a direction and a meaning. By analyzing this portion, we can learn much about our personal and national destiny. It is truly a “must read!”

Some of the mitzvot (commandments): Revere your parents, observe Shabbat, no idol worship, gifts to the poor, deal honestly, love your fellow Jew, refrain from immoral sexual relationships, honor old people, love the proselyte, don’t engage in sorcery or superstition, do not pervert justice, observe kashrut and more. The portion ends, “You shall observe all My decrees and ordinances … you shall be holy … I have separated you from the peoples to be Mine.”(Aish)
