The Portion of Behukotai

May 10, 2015

This week’s portion is the final one in the Book of Leviticus. It is often read in conjunction with the previous portion, Behar.

 

Our portion contains a brief passage outlining the blessings God offers the Children of Israel on condition that they keep his statutes, then continues with a lengthy and detailed accounting of the curses He will visit upon them if they do not follow His commandments. The Torah then explains how to set the values of different gifts one might dedicate to the Temple, and likewise the values of mandatory Temple contributions. It also includes an exceptional circumstance, where redemption is not an option.
