PASSOVER IN THE TIME OF CORONA: STAY BEHIND CLOSED DOORS TO BE SAFE FROM THE PLAGUE
The Corona virus has sent the entire world indoors, but life must go on, and that means Passover preparations are in full swing, and the weekly Torah reading welcomes us as usual. But not much else is usual in these unusual times, and that certainly goes for Israel's current attempt to hobble together a governing coalition following out third election in one year. But it only took Moshe, Aharon and the kohanim seven days of intense training to get ready for the grand opening of the Tabernacle in the desert, which is all the excitement in parashat Tzav. We've got lots to learn from that dynamic generation of the wilderness!
WEEKLY TORAH STUDY: TZAV (SHABBAT HAGADOL)
This week's parashat Tzav falls on Shabbat HaGadol, (The Great Shabbat), the name given to the Shabbat which immediately precedes Passover. In the spirit of Shabbat HaGadol, (and in the shadow of Corona), Rav Gedalia shares some very timely and poignant insights into aspects of the Passover Seder Haggadah.
Due to the current imperative of social distancing, this teaching was delivered and recorded via Zoom.
