Bechukkotai (Audio Portion)
One call ends—another is ready to begin. This parsha we witness the last part of Leviticus as the final rules are laid down for Israel while they have been encamped at Mount Sinai for the last two years. One last chance to understand the intricate rules of harvesting, Jubilees, special vows—all are given and more with a greater sense of urgency. Israel stands ready to get on the move, but it is only the calm before the storm as book of Badmidbar (Numbers) looms in their future, with deadly rebellions and close family betrayals still in Moshe’s future. Get ready—this ride is just about to get bumpy!
