Show Notes

After a short break for Pesach, we're back discussing the weekly Torah portion. In this week's portion, Acharei Mot, we see how the laws we studied earlier in Sefer Vayikra are applied by the High Priest on Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year. We talk about the mysterious scapegoat, its possible relationship to demon worship, and what it means to wipe the slate clean. Also, how does the end of the Torah portion - on Jewish sexual ethics - relate to the Yom Kippur ceremony? Join us.
