Kedoshim – קדשים
May 7, 2022
Leviticus 19:1-20:27; Ezekiel 20:2-20; Matthew 5:43-48
Torah Portion “קדשים – Kedoshim” which means “Holy Ones,” and begins, “And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, ‘Speak to all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl, and say to them, “Be set-apart, for I יהוה your Elohim am set-apart.” ‘ ”
What is the Torah’s greatest commandment? Is it in how we tie our tzitziot? Is it based on whether or not a man wears a kippah? Or is it founded on how we view our neighbor and his life compared to ours? Many will argue that it’s the small things that mean the most to Hashem but should that really be our primary focus? If we look so closely at the splinter in our brother’s eye who is failing in these small matters, we fail to recognize the plank in our own and lose sight of the big picture. Thus possibly pushing others away from the Light of the Torah, our path, and the saving grace of others in this world. We invite you to join us in this week’s Parasha of Kedoshim, and implore you to sit and ponder the question, “What is the Torah’s greatest commandment?”
This week Ro’eh Richard concludes the days teachings with the Haftorah from Ezekiel 20:2-20 and the New Covenant E-drash from Matthew 5:43-48.
