Shabbat Shalom! Acharei Mot

Acharei Mot, “After the death,” is the name of this week’s Torah portion. It picks up just following the death of Aaron’s two eldest sons in a terrible burst of fire from the Tabernacle. We read this portion in the late spring, as we are doing now. Many congregations also read it on Yom Kippur as well. It covers a wide range of topics, so there’s plenty for our darshanim to cover:

In Defense of Cultural Judaism by Rabbi David Kasher

Bringing the Entire Community Together by Rabbi Michael Safra

The Mothers of the Priests by Rabbi Lev Meirowitz Nelson

Acharei Mot by Rabbi Amitai Adler

Parenting by the Parsha: Acharei Mot by Rabbi Eve Posen (VIDEO)
