Rabbi Victor Appell
Parashat K’doshim, Leviticus 19:1-20:27
- God issues a variety of commandments, instructing the Israelites on how to be a holy people. (19:1–37)
- Various sex offenses are discussed and punishments for them are presented. (20:1–27)
- As Rabbi Appell teaches, Parashat K’doshim reminds us that we are created in the divine image. In what ways do you find holiness in yourself and in those around you?
- The Holiness Code also reminds us of our responsibility to care for those in need within our communities. Are there particular ways you fulfill this commandment in your life? If not, how might you do so?
