About the event

We will be reading the Torah portion Kedoshim, Leviticus/VaYikra chapters 19-20, together with three commentaries: one is from an Orthodox source, one from a Conservative source, and one from a Reform source.  Read ahead if you like!  But it’s not required.

Here is an internet link to the Biblical text of Kedoshim on Sefaria:  https://www.sefaria.org/Leviticus.19.1-20.27?lang=bi&aliyot=1

Also a PDF file of the text of Kedoshim in Hebrew and English is attached.

We will also be reading three commentaries, one from the Union of Orthodox Rabbis, one from the Conservative Jewish Theological Seminary, and one from the Reform movement.  (Note: Judy has changed which Conservative commentary we’re reading, because the most recent one was from a Shabbat that was Rosh Hodesh and the commentary was mostly about that; instead she went back a couple of years to one by Conservative Rabbi Daniel Nevins).  PDF files of all three of these commentaries are attached.

Please join us!  It should be interesting.
