A spiritual affliction with physical symptoms which occurred over a circumscribed time period thousands of years ago and was limited only to the land of Israel, tzarat is more relevant than ever today here in the land of Israel. Learning to accept and include, to share and to give, is the antidote to the root cause of tzarat, and the key to Israel’s role as a light to the nations.
