Kedoshim 5771: The Holiness Code and Holy Threads

Some interesting articles about Shatnez can be found here:  http://www.jerusalemkoshernews.com/2011/01/shatnez-dr-pepper-so-misunderstood/

I especially like the second article which gives the reason that wool and linen should not be mixed is because wool shrinks and linen does not shrink, makes one wonder if all of the biblical authors were actually hand spinners?  As I mention in the podcast, I think there are other reasons as well that we are supposed to refrain from mixing wool and linen.

I have also included some fun images from the world of Shatnez.

Happy Pesach!

Dear all:

There is no regular Torah portion for this week only the special readings for the holiday, most of which, since they come from the book of Exodus, I have already recorded.  You might enjoy going back and listening to those sections to review.   This also gives me another week to try to repair my broken microphone!

The Torah Portion for this shabbat is: Exodus 33:12 - 34:26 & Numbers 28:19 - 28:25.

Hag Kasher V'Sameach.  A happy holiday to all.
