Tazria 5771: I'm in a pure state of mind

A fun interpretation of the Torah, The Torah in Haiku.  There is also a book called the Haggadah in Haiku.  I would have quoted the author on this week's episode, except that I have not yet received his permission, so I am linking to his materials for you to look on your own!  

An article giving more "medical" information on what the diseases were that are mentioned in the parasha.

I seem to have messed up my facebook page!  Sorry.  I will try to fix it!

Vayikra 5771: Of offerings, sacrifices and community building

Vayikra 5771:  Of offerings, sacrifices and community building

For more background on the book of Leviticus you can read:

I also strongly suggest getting The Torah:  A Modern Commentary by Rabbi Gunther Plaut.  These sections of Leviticus are really well explained by Rabbi Plaut.
