Rabbi Marcus – Tazria

 

This week’s Sedra is called Tazria. The Sedra continues with the theme of holiness and purity and in particular with the affliction known as Tzara’at. Tzara’at is often incorrectly translated as leprosy but it is quite clear that this affliction, which seems to have been a common ailment in ancient times, was the physical symptom of a spiritual illness.
