Acharei Mot 2022

This Parsha is unique in that while the previous instructions regarding ritual purity for all Israel has been discussed, now YHVH has them to take a look backward to recall the calamity that had befallen the sons of Aaron – Nadab and Abihu – who had approached the Holy Place, the Altar Throne of Elohiym, in an untoward manner. We need to ask why. Especially as the Creator gives explicit instructions to Aaron regarding the protocol for accessing the Holy of Holies one time a year during the Holy Convocation of Yom Kippur.
