The Value of a Person

Stack of coins

Parashat Bechukotai 5772

This week we conclude Sefer Vayikra.

Strangely, the beginning of the last chapter doesn’t seem to be related to the rest of the sefer.

Here are the relevant verses that I looked at earlier this week (Judaica Press translation):


The Value of a Soul

coins for valuing

Parashat Bechukotai 5772

This week’s parasha starts with the tochachah / admonition of the Jewish people.

Then the Torah discusses various vows and contributions that a person can make.

Both of these topics are difficult and sensitive.
