Shalom and welcome to the Parsha in 60 seconds

Today’s portion is from Leviticus 14:1–15:33 it is called Metzora which means “one being diseased,”

God gave a cleansing ritual for skin disease. It involved two live clean birds, cedar wood, crimson stuff, and hyssop. Eight days later another sacrifice would be made.

God explained the ritual for cleansing a house with an eruptive plague.
It involved some major remodeling and some birds as well as other things.

God gave the ritual for all sorts of male and female *cough* uncleanliness.
Many of these rituals involved a lot of cleaning and clothes washing and a week long process which ends with a sacrifice.

Cleanliness was very important to God.
God told Moses and Aaron to put the Israelites on guard against uncleanness, lest they die by defiling God’s Tabernacle.
