We speak, therefore we are human. In order to preserve our humanity we must take hold of our tongues and speak only things worthy of the name G-d gave to the man He created – Adam. The spiritual palliative prescribed by Torah provides for the metzora a way to get back to the Adam we are meant to be.
Metzora (Leviticus 14:1 – 15:33)
Parashat Metzora is read on Shabbat:
Nisan 8, 5776/April 16, 2016
