Rabbi Marcus – Tzav

This week’s Sedra is called Tzav which means ‘To Command’.  The Sedra is a continuation of the laws and regulations governing the sacrifices which were brought to the altar in the Mishkan.  We also learn about the daily ‘Korban Tamid’ the Eternal Sacrifice.  This is one of the reasons why we have the Eternal Light in Synagogues. This is a symbolic reminder to the Jewish people to constantly make renewed efforts to keep the light of Judaism alive.
