Is Holiness Contagious?

Is Holiness Contagious?

Impurity is transferred through physical contact. Theologically speaking, could the same be true for holiness?

Can Elijah Reconcile Fathers and Sons ?

Can Elijah Reconcile Fathers and Sons ?

Jewish tradition seems to have difficulty with the relationship between fathers and sons. Hence the last verses of Malachi, a coda to the Nevi’im section of Tanakh, imagines ultimate redemption through a metaphor of father-son reconciliation, with the fire and brimstone prophet Elijah its unlikely, antagonistic harbinger. Leave it to the poet Yehuda Amichai to step in and offer a counter-model to rescue the metaphor.

“This Is the Torah” for the Priests Performing the Offerings

Expanding upon R. David Zvi Hoffmann’s insight that Parashat Tzav (Lev 6-7) was originally connected directly with the laws of the miluim (ordination) sacrifice in Exodus 29, with a second sacrificial unit (Lev 1-5) spliced in the middle.
