ZICHRON YAAKOV

PARSHAH IN A NUTSHELL
Leviticus 12:1–13:59
The name of the Parshah, "Tazria," means "conceives" and it is found in Leviticus 12:2.

The Parshah of Tazria continues the discussion of the laws of tumah v'taharah, ritual impurity and purity.

A woman giving birth should undergo a process of purification, which includes immersing in a mikvah (a naturally gathered pool of water) and bringing offerings to the Holy Temple. All male infants are to be circumcised on the eighth day of life.

Tzaraat (often mistranslated as leprosy) is a supra-natural plague, which can afflict people as well as garments or homes. If white or pink patches appear on a person's skin (dark red or green in garments), a kohen is summoned. Judging by various signs, such as an increase in size of the afflicted area after a seven-day quarantine, the kohen pronounces it tamei (impure) or tahor (pure).

A person afflicted with tzaraat must dwell alone outside of the camp (or city) until he is healed. The afflicted area in a garment or home must be removed; if the tzaraat recurs, the entire garment or home must be destroyed.


HAFTORAH IN A NUTSHELL
II Kings 4:42-5:19.

This week's haftorah describes how a prophet miraculously cured an Aramite general of his tzara'at ailment. The bulk of this week's Torah reading discusses this skin disease and its related impurity.

The haftorah begins with a brief mention of one of the prophet Elisha's miraculous feats. He received a paltry gift of twenty loaves of bread and a sack of grain. At Elisha's insistence, this gift was shared amongst his hundred students. The food was enough for all—and there was even leftovers.

Naaman, general of the powerful Aramite armies, contracted tzara'at. A young captive Israelite maid advised him to seek the assistance of the "prophet in Samaria." Acting on this suggestion, the king of Aram dispatched a message to the king of Israel, "Behold I have sent Naaman my servant to you, and you shall cure him of his tzara'at!"

The king of Israel panicked, until Elisha sent him a message: "Why have you rent your garments? Let him come to me now, and let him know that there is a prophet in Israel!"

Elisha advised Naaman to immerse in the Jordan River. Despite his initial reluctance to do so, Naaman carried out the prophet's orders, and was immediately healed.

Elisha refused to accept any gifts from Naaman. The general promised Elisha that he would no longer serve any deity other than the One G‑d, and he departed.


SAGES ON THE PARSHAH

On the eighth day, the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised (12:3)

Isaac and Ishmael were engaged in a controversy. Said Ishmael to Isaac: "I am more beloved to G‑d than you, since I was circumcised at the age of thirteen, but you were circumcised as a baby and could not refuse." Isaac retorted: "All that you gave up to G‑d was three drops of blood. But lo, I am now thirty-seven years old, yet if G‑d desired of me that I be slaughtered, I would not refuse."

(Midrash Rabbah)

Jewishness is not a matter of historical consciousness, outlook, ethics, or even behavior; it is a state of being. This is the deeper significance of the debate between Ishmael and Isaac. When the Jew is circumcised on the eighth day of life, he is completely unaware of the significance of what has occurred. But this "non-experience" is precisely what circumcision means. With circumcision the Jew says: I define my relationship with G‑d not by what I think, feel or do, but by the fact of my Jewishness—a fact which applies equally to an infant of eight days and a sage of eighty years.

(The Lubavitcher Rebbe)

CIVL Mechiras Chometz

CIVL - Sale of Chometz  - 5784/2024

The sale of Chomez ('Mechiras Chometz') is effective only if one truly commits to sell his/her Chometz in an unconditional and absolute sale. It is therefore customary to perform a Kinyan (act of acquisition) when authorising the Rav to sell the Chometz. However, this Kinyan is not an absolute requirement.

In the sale, one includes all Chometz and Chometz utensils. Since the actual location of the Chometz is leased as well, one should list the full address of each of his personal and business properties, including common-owned properties.

Anything included in Mechiras Chometz should be securely stored away before Bedikas Chometz, either by placing it in a closed area such as a closet, which should be locked or marked, or by completely barricading it with a sturdy Mechitzah [partition] at least ten Tefachim [80cm] tall. A curtain that is easily slung aside does not suffice. [When extremely necessary, one may access these areas during Pesach, but must avoid remaining there for any length of time, and must not touch the Chometz nor open any boxes containing them.]

The form must be submitted before 9:00am, Monday 22nd April 2024, after which time this online facility will expire.

The Chometz from the sale will be permitted for use once again after 6:45pm on Tuesday 30th April 2024

This online form is suitable only for people resident in Melbourne for the duration of Pesach. If one intends travelling to a different time-zone for Pesach, he should inform the Rav of his situation for further guidance.

For further information about Mechiras Chometz, or Pesach in general, please visit: bit.ly/LCPesach (generously prepared by RabbI Shmuel Lesches, Rabbi of Young Yeshivah)

Regards,

CIVL (Chabad Institutions of Victoria Ltd)

LAMPLIGHTER
ZICHRON YAAKOV

PARSHAH IN A NUTSHELL
Leviticus 9:1–11:47
The name of the Parshah, "Shemini," means "eighth" and it is found in Leviticus 9:1.

On the eighth day, following the seven days of their inauguration, Aaron and his sons begin to officiate as kohanim (priests); a fire issues forth from G‑d to consume the offerings on the altar, and the divine presence comes to dwell in the Sanctuary.

Aaron's two elder sons, Nadav and Avihu, offer a "strange fire before G‑d, which He commanded them not" and die before G‑d. Aaron is silent in face of his tragedy. Moses and Aaron subsequently disagree as to a point of law regarding the offerings, but Moses concedes to Aaron that Aaron is in the right.

G‑d commands the kosher laws, identifying the animal species permissible and forbidden for consumption. Land animals may be eaten only if they have split hooves and also chew their cud; fish must have fins and scales; a list of non-kosher birds is given, and a list of kosher insects (four types of locusts).

Also in Shemini are some of the laws of ritual purity, including the purifying power of the mikvah (a pool of water meeting specified qualifications) and the wellspring. Thus the people of Israel are enjoined to "differentiate between the impure and the pure."

HACHODESH IN A NUTSHELL
Exodus 12:1–20
This being the Shabbat that falls on or before the first of Nissan, we also read the section of Hachodesh (Exodus 12:1–20), which relates G‑d's words to Moses in Egypt two weeks before the Exodus, instructing us to set the Jewish calendar by the monthly new moon, and to regard Nissan as the "head of months." G‑d also instructs to bring the Passover offering, to eat it with matzah and bitter herbs, and to abstain from leaven for seven days.


HAFTORAH IN A NUTSHELL
Ezekiel 45:18-46:15 (Hachodesh)

This special haftorah is a prophecy regarding the Paschal Offering that will be brought during the Messianic Era, reflecting the theme of the Hachodesh Torah reading—Moses' command to the Israelites in Egypt to prepare and bring the Paschal lamb.

This haftorah is part of Ezekiel's prophecy regarding the third Holy Temple—its structure, inauguration and some of the practices that will be observed therein.

The haftorah begins with a description of the various sacrifices that will be offered during the Temple's seven-day inauguration ceremony, and then mentions that on the 14th of Nissan we shall bring the Paschal offering.

Much of the rest of the haftorah is devoted to the sacrifices that will be brought by the "leader," and prescribes his entry and exit from the Temple.


SAGES ON THE PARSHAH

This chodesh (new moon, month) shall be for you the head of months; it shall be for you the first of the months of the year (12:2)

G‑d showed Moses the new moon at its moment of rebirth, and said to him: "When the moon is reborn, mark the beginning of a new month."

(Mechilta)

There was a large courtyard in Jerusalem called Beth Yaazek, where all the witnesses (who had seen the appearance of the new moon) used to assemble, and the beit din (rabbinical court) used to examine them. They used to entertain them lavishly there, so that they should have an inducement to come . . .

The pair of witnesses who arrived first were crossexamined first. The senior of them was brought in and they said to him: "Tell us how you saw the moon—in front of the sun or behind the sun? To the north of it or the south? How big was it, and in which direction was it inclined? How broad was it?" . . . Rabban Gamaliel used to have diagrams of the phases of the moon on a tablet on the wall of his upper chamber, and he used to show them to the unlearned and ask, "Did it look like this or this?" . . .

After that they would bring in the second witness and question him. If their accounts tallied, their evidence was accepted. The other pairs were questioned briefly—not because they were required at all, but so that they should not be disappointed and discouraged from coming (the next time).

The head of the beit din would then proclaim: "Sanctified!" and all the people would repeat after him, "Sanctified! Sanctified!"

(Talmud, Rosh Hashanah ch. 2)
