Ki Teitzei – כִּי-תֵצֵא (Deuteronomy 21:10–25:19)
This Week’s Torah Portion: Ki Teitzei – כִּי-תֵצֵא (Deuteronomy 21:10–25:19)
“A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for Adonai your God detests anyone who does this.” (Deuteronomy 22:3)
There are always those, who try to organize the world, everything needs to be in order, and we can never mix and play with our fluid identities.
They do not realize that what makes the world more interesting, what brings out life, is when we go out of the ordinary when we allow a man to wear a woman’s dress (just like Jacob did for Joseph) or vis-versa. And the best fruits, cloths, and vegetables and also humans are the hybrid ones who do not follow the roles and mix one species with the other.
