Shabbat Shalom 4 Nisan 5774

The Torah portion for this week is Metzora, translated as “one being diseased”. Yep, we are still on the topic of purity, delving into discharges and “eruptive plagues”. The commandments in Metzora, all eleven of them, are positives, listing the “musts” in such situations.
