In this weeks podcast we will approach two points
1. The Torah commandment to tear our garments when encountering death and the danger of falling in to practices of death worship
2. The special relevance that this commandment holds to the Cohen (priest) and his responsibilitie, as well as how it reflects on us. From these two seemingly peripheral concepts Rav Hirsch draws out for us fundamental goals and methods of Judaism as a whole.
Acharei Mot - The Drama of growth ancient & modern
Something very disconnected both practically and religiously form our daily lives. The Chen Godol (Hight Priest) and the changing of his clothes we see being reduced and encapsulated into a system that speaks to us today.
