VaYikra: Barbecue for G-d?

March 14, 2019

Aaron Roller & Rabbi Jonathan Bienenfeld

We pop into the Book of Leviticus with some unconvincing champagne sound effects and then we're off, with a discussion of what the institution of animal sacrifice is all about. Is it about achieving closeness with G-d? Reconciliation? Keeping G-d's presence in the Israelite camp? We explore all these avenues and Rabbi Bienenfeld brings some illuminating analogies, drawing from board games, barbecue and a recent article in the New York Times about unplugging from social media.
