Aaron Roller & Rabbi Jonathan Bienenfeld
A discussion about Parshat Emor.
Show Notes

In this episode, we discussed the Torah portion's exclusion of priests with disabilities or physical blemishes from serving in the Tabernacle or Temple. It was a difficult discussion but it was good to talk about the Torah's different models of leadership and how we respond when specific laws do not conform with our sense of fairness (or what we might see as the Torah's own system of values). We hope that we approached this topic with sensitivity. Also, we both turn out to be pretty big Zionists.
