Can Purity Last?

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/torah_portion/article/can_purity_last_20040416

In this week's Torah portion, Moses elaborates the laws of impurity. Touching or holding something impure will render people, clothing, food, beverages, containers, wood, leather, earthenware and ovens impure. Shemini is concerned with the consequences of contact with living, ritually impure animals, as well as carcasses.
