B’har – B’chukotai (Leviticus 25:1-27:34)
This Week’s Torah Portion: B’har – B’chukotai (Leviticus 25:1-27:34)
“Consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants” (Leviticus 25:10).
The Torah is commanding us to make sure the human right for freedom will be kept in our land.
This pillar of our faith is engraved on the American liberty bell in Philadelphia, one of many wonderful gifts that our Torah and our tradition gave the world.
We end the book of Leviticus, and say the traditional blessing we need so much at this time, “May we be strong and continue to go from strength to strength”.
