Parsha of the Week

                This week’s parsha is parshas Achrei Mot and Kedoshim. The Kohen Gadol did the special work on the tenth day of Tishrei, on Yom Kippur. The Jewish people must bring two goats. They must be identical.  One of the goats would be used for a sin offering, and the second goat would be pushed off from a high cliff.  The Kohen Gadol confessed the sins of the Jews to Hashem by putting his hands on the head of the goat that will be pushed off the cliff and saying “Viduy “ (with Hashem’s name). The special place the Kohen Gadol goes to on Yom Kippur is the holly of hollies, where he brought spice offerings, and dripped the blood of the Korbons. The time for eating from the Korbon is the day that the Korbon was created, and the following night afterwards it must be burned.
On another note one becomes holly by staying away from the sins. A person should:

1.       Stay away from idol worship
2.       Being careful about eating Kosher
3.       Be careful who we marry
4.       Not imitating the way of the other nations act
