An Interactive Parsha Experience – 5779 Chukat: Trust in the Unexpected!

Posted by Pardes Center for Jewish Educators Contributors on July 7, 2019
Topics: An Interactive Parsha Experience, Torah, Bamidbar (Numbers), Chukat

Chukat contains an idea that is quite confusing – spiritual purity and impurity. Just like a person can be in a happy or sad mood, or a person can be wide awake or very tired, so too a person can be spiritually pure (tahor in Hebrew) and spiritually impure (tameh in Hebrew). Our parsha explains that contact with, or being in the same room as, a dead person makes a person become tameh. It also explains that for a person to become spiritually pure they need to be sprinkled with a special mixture. This week’s Interactive Parsha Experience comes from Reuven Margrett.
