Emor

Transforming Our Festivals, Our Lives

Rabbi Arthur Waskow, 5/1/2005

The scheduled Torah readings for the portion called Emor include one of the Torah's recitations of the festival cycle of the year (Leviticus 23).

Two elements of this recitation make clear how the festivals have been transformed by crucial events in the past, and show us the way toward transforming them if necessary to meet our own needs in our own generation.
