B’har-B’chukotai – “On The Mountain”-“In My Statutes”

This week we have two Parashas: B’har (meaning, “on the mountain”), and B’chukotai (meaning, “in my statutes”). They cover Leviticus 25:1-27:34. The Lord spoke to Moses at Mount Sinai. He said, “Tell the Israelis when you enter the land that I am giving you, that you must let the land have a special time of rest.”  Even in Israel’s use

B’har – “In The Mountain”

This week’s Torah portion is named, B’har, meaning “In the mountain.”  It covers Leviticus 25:1 to 26:2 and highlights the majesty of God and His compassion for His people and the Land.  The Sabbath, Sabbatical year and the Year of Jubilee are just a few of God’s gracious provisions.  In case you didn’t know it, our Lord is very serious

B’har – “On The Mount”

  This week’s parasha is called Behar.  It covers Leviticus, Chapter 25:1 through Leviticus, Chapter 26:2.  This is one of the shortest parashas of the year as it only covers one chapter, but yet it contains information about some very important observances for the Jewish people.  For some of the information used in this parasha, I referenced the

B’Har-Bechukotai – “At The Mountain-My Laws”

We live in a fallen world. It is dark, dangerous, confusing. It’s a hard place to live in. It’s not at rest. Creation is missing the Eden-like rest it enjoyed before the Fall. Those redeemed by the Seed of the Woman will enjoy great rest, perfect rest, in the future. In the meantime, God’s will was for His people and
