Parsha in 60 Seconds Presents Shemini

Shalom and welcome to the Parsha in 60 seconds

Today’s portion is from Leviticus 9:1–11:47 it is called Shemini which means “eighth,”
After ordaining the priests they made sacrifices.

Then the Presence of the Lord appeared to all the people and fire consumed the sacrifices. The people were awestruck.

Aaron’s sons Nadab and Abihu decided to improvise and offered unholy fire and God’s fire incinerated them. Their bodies were placed outside the camp. Aaron and his cousins were not to mourn or leave the tent of meeting.

God tells Aaron that he and his remaining sons were not to drink wine or other intoxicants when they entered the Tent of Meeting, keeping it holy or they would die.

The priests and their families ate their portions from the sacrifice.

Moses discovered that Eleazar and Ithamar had already sacrificed and burnt their sin offering and questioned Aaron. Aaron gave an answer which satisfied Moses.

And that is Shemini in 60 seconds.
