Parshat Kedoshim • Leviticus 19:1-20:27

“You must not curse the deaf nor put a stumbling block before the blind but shall fear God (Leviticus 19:14).” Also known as the Holiness Code, this week’s Torah portion — Kedoshim —presents us with a treasury of moral imperatives by which to live. Both of these maxims are understood literally as well as categorically. To not place a stumbling block before the blind refers to those who would cause another to sin and who would strike a grown man, to those who would render judgement without knowledge and to those who would get lost in their study of Torah.

We have a unique opportunity to continue our study of Kedoshim and the categories mentioned above this Shabbat. Professor Daniel Matt, who has spend 18 years publishing the first scholarly translation of the Zohar, will join Rabbi Meyer in leading our Torah Study group. Consider joining us on our Seattle campus at 9:30am for this thought-provoking study!

Rabbi Aaron C. Meyer
