Parashat HaShavua - Metzora
Thursday, April 14, 2016
Midrash Tanhuma, one of many rabbinic texts which understands metzora as a condition that occurs as a consequence of speaking badly of others, teaches that the reason the person needs to bring cedar-wood and hyssop in order to be purified of the condition is that "this person has exalted himself like a cedar... so he should humble himself like hyssop" (a grass that grows low to the ground).

Parashat HaShavua - Shemini
Thursday, March 31, 2016
"Every prescription is insistent in its demand to be located in discourse – to be supplied with history and destiny, beginning and end, explanation and purpose." (Robert Cover, "Nomos and Narrative," 1983) Within what discourse do we locate the prescriptions for keeping kosher? Their inclusion in Parashat Shemini this week (in Leviticus 11) offers an occasion to consider several possibilities: What boundaries do we preserve in our lives? One understanding of keeping kosher is that it creates boundaries in our lives...
