Parsha in 60 Seconds Presents Tazria

Shalom and welcome to the Parsha in 60 seconds

Today’s portion is from Leviticus 12:1–13:59 it is called Tazria which means “she conceives,”
God tells Moses when a woman has a boy, she is unclean 7 days and must wait 33 days. For a girl double. After her time is complete, she was to bring a sin offering.

When a person had a swelling, rash, discoloration, scaly affection, inflammation, or burn, it was to be reported to the priest, who would examine it to determine whether the person was clean or unclean. Unclean persons were to tear their clothes, leave their head bare, cover up their upper lips, declare “Unclean! Unclean!” and chill outside the camp.

When clothes got dirty, it was to be shown to the priest, who was to examine to determine whether it was clean or unclean. If unclean, it was to be burnt, but if the there were no stains after a wash, it was to be washed again and be clean.

And that is Tazria in 60 seconds.
