Tazria – M’tzora – תַזְרִיעַ – מְצֹרָע (Levicitus 12:1-15:33)
This Week’s Torah Portion: Tazria – M’tzora – תַזְרִיעַ – מְצֹרָע (Levicitus 12:1-15:33)
Two Torah portions about skin diseases. If you get these diseases, you need to go to isolation outside of the camp.
The rabbis tell us a story, they ask who will be our savior? Our Messiah?
And they answer, go to the gate of the city, look for the poor people, outcasted because of these skin diseases, and you will find the Messiah among them.
Our salvation will not come from the top of the social order, nor from our leaders, it will come from those we tend to ignore.
