Torah Discussion Starter: May 2022

G-d describes to Moses many ethical and ritual laws aimed at helping the people of Israel live lives of holiness. He tells the people of Israel that if they follow His commandments, they will be provided with rain to feed their crops.

The laws described include some recorded in the Ten Commandments, and introduces laws about farming, resting the land and crops every seven years, the use of slaves and the Jubilee year every 50 years. G-g describes restrictions related to priests’ sexuality and marriage, laws surrounding the belief in supernatural beings, a variety of holidays, and outlines the omer period, asking the Israelites to bring food offerings to the priests for seven weeks. G-d also describes the long list of punishments that will be inflicted on the Israelites if they do not follow His laws.
