Parsha

While traveling from city to city selling his wares, a peddler approached the city of Tzipori and called out in a loud voice, “Who wants to buy the potion of life? Who wants life?” A crowd gathered around him. Rebbe Yanni heard the commotion and stood by watching. When he heard the man’s offer, he said to him, “I would like to purchase some.” The peddler responded, “It’s not for you and your type.” Rebbe Yanni persisted.

What did the peddler reveal to

In this week’s parsha this purpose of existence is revealed, when the Jews in the wilderness of Sinai build a Tabernacle and G-d makes His presence dwell there.Why Would G-d Create the World?

  2. On all other nights we eat all kinds of vegetables, but tonight we eat only marror (bitter herbs).
  3. On all other nights we don’t dip our food even

On the first day of Passover (last Shabbat) we read from the book of Exodus (12:21-51) of the bringing of the Passover Offering in Egypt, the Plague of the Firstborn at the stroke of midnight, and how "On this very day, G-d took the Children of Israel out of Egypt."

The reading for the second day of Passover, Leviticus 22:26-23:44, includes: a list of the moadim – the "appointed times" on the Jewish calendar for festive celebration of our bond with G-d; the mitzvah to Count the Omer (the 49-day

Not Too Big to Take Out the Ash

The Torah section of Tzav begins by telling us (Vayikra 6:1-4): “And G-d spoke to Moses, saying:  Command Aaron and his sons, saying: This is the law of the burnt-offering; it is the burnt-offering [that stays] on the flame, on the Altar, all night until the morning, and the fire of the Altar should be kept aflame on it.

The priest shall don his fitted linen Tunic, and he shall don linen breeches on his flesh; he shall separate the ash of what the fire consumed of
