The Torah In Haiku: Tzav

For the offerings
Burnt, meal, sin and well being
The rules are all here


Chapters 6 and 7 of Leviticus (the first part of this week’s portion) list the detailed rules for various types of offerings. This section concludes, “This then is the law of the burnt offering, the meal offering, the sin offering, the inauguration offering, and the peace offering, which G-d gave to Moses on Mount Sinai. [It was given] on the day that He commanded the Israelites to offer their sacrifices to G-d in the Sinai Desert” (Lev 7:37-38)
