A Higher Holiness Through Connection with a Collective

D'Var Torah By: Rabbi Ben Spratt

The priestly purpose is to remain separate from the people while linking them to God.... We are left with a difficult duality, both in the nature of this flesh-focused practice and the priestly power paradigm: in word and in world, what is the primary purpose?
