Rabbi Marcus – Bechukotai

In this Sidra, which is the last in the Book of Vayikra (Leviticus), we are challenged to choose the way of Torah and promised that should the Torah be the basis for our lives, we will prosper and above all there will be ‘peace in the land’.  Conversely if we reject Torah we are warned of the dire consequences in the section known as the ‘TOCHECHAH’ – Admonition – Chapter 22 v 14-40, which forms the bulk of this Sidra.

The Sidra ends highlighting the voluntary contribution made by people towards the upkeep of the Sanctuary, a tradition of generosity much in evidence today in our support of Synagogues and communal life.
