Vayikra (Leviticus 1:1−5:26)
This Week’s Torah Portion: Vayikra (Leviticus 1:1−5:26)
The opening word of Leviticus that gives the book and this first parashah its name is Vayikra, which means, “And God called.” God calls us from the pages of Leviticus. God calls us to holiness, to a life of meaning, to a path of harmony. God calls us to a sense of connectedness to a world within ourselves, within our families, and within all life upon this planet. The question at the heart of Vayikra is, how will you answer God’s call?
