Parashat Vayikra (Leviticus 1:1-5:26)

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/torah_portion/article/parashat_vayikra_leviticus_11-526_20100316

This week’s portion begins a new book of the Bible, Leviticus. It is fascinating to look at the first and last words of each of the books of the Torah: Genesis: When God began to create the heavens and the earth ... in a coffin in Egypt. Exodus: These are the names of the children of Israel who came to Egypt ... throughout their journeys. Leviticus: The Lord called out to Moses ... on Mount Sinai. Numbers: In the wilderness of Sinai ... on the Jordan opposite Jericho. Deuteronomy: These are the words which Moses spoke ... in the sight of all Israel.
