Between a Rock and a Hard Place: Navigating the Book of Leviticus

D'Var Torah By: Rabbi Lance J. Sussman

My sense is that for most Reform Jews, reading the third book of the Torah, Leviticus, is more a function of calendar than choice: a tough, unavoidable literary landscape with only a few rest stops or scenic overlooks. It’s just a territory we must traverse in order to get to the next major site on our annual pilgrimage through the Five Books of Moses.
