Where it comes from

Parshat Emor (Leviticus 21:1-24:23)

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/torah_portion/article/where_it_comes_from_20070504

Not all of us realize it, but Parshat Emor is one of the most frequently read Torah portions we encounter. We typically read it in May, and again on Passover's second day and on the first two days of Sukkot. It is read on these two festivals because, like D'varim (Deuteronomy) chapter 16 in Parshat Re'eh, it sets forth critical details that define the Torah observances' unique requirements for us.
