Parashat Kedoshim

פרשת קדושים

Lv. 19:11-20:27 | Am. 9:7-15
Tabernacle model from above, bwb032300501 - cópia.jpg

This portion begins with a maxim central to the theme of ritual purity of the people of Israel; God says, “Be holy because I, your God, am holy.” Many laws, therefore, follow: about agriculture, idolatry, honesty, respect for parents, Sabbath, among others. The famous sentence “love your neighbor as yourself” also appears in this passage.
