Acharei Mot/Kedoshim – Torah In Haiku

 

Kedoshim

Seeking holiness …
In how we behave each day …
The “code” is found here —

The chapters of Torah often called “The Holiness Code” begin in this week’s double portion. So called because of the numerous repetitions of the phrase “You shall be holy”, it includes many ethical commandments. These laws provide guidelines for our behavior as we strive for holiness in our lives.

Leviticus 19:1-2
“God spoke to Moses, saying: Speak to the whole Israelite community and say to them: You shall be holy, for I, Adonai your God, am holy.”
