This week we are in parsha Emor, which starts with “say to the priests…” and gives commands regarding the service in the Mishkahn (tabernacle); YHVH also gives instruction regarding the breakdown of ‘the classes’ within Israel: Cohanim, Levites and Israel. He also gives special instructions for the including dealing with corpses, rules for the Cohen as well as the of marriage of a Cohen and pagan customs. This parsha also lists the mo’edim, set apart times aka Holy Days of YHVH and HIS children. It also includes the instructions YHVH wants US to observe when we partake of HIS Mo’edim.
Grab your Bible…gather the children! As always, this week’s parsha lends itself to numerous teachable moments! If your children are into math, puzzles and numbers THIS is something they will love. (Shh, I love puzzles and find gematria fascinating too 🙂 The lesson opportunities, crafty projects and discussion topics are rich this week!
