Achrei Mot and Kedoshim
Two parshot are read on this Shabbat: Achrei Mot and Kedoshim. The second portion begins with God telling the Israelites: Kedoshim -- You shall be holy, for I am holy. What does this mean? It means acting with love and respect to ourselves, to other people and to the world. This week, we remember the Earth when we celebrate Earth Day on April 22. Go to Balboa Park on April 21 for the Whole Earth Fest (after you've visited the Israeli Independence Day Festival) and check out all the booths, crafts and activities.
