We begin the book of Leviticus with the portion of Vayikra, introducing the phenomenon of sacrifices, which were offered at the tabernacle that was just completed with the conclusion of the book of Exodus. 

While the English word sacrifice does some justice to the ritual in that one does give up resources, more can be learned from the Hebrew term Korban (קרבן) which the sages say comes from the word Karov, meaning close. In other words, the goal of a sacrifice is to become closer to the Almighty. 

And this concept is the key distinction between how the Torah views sacrifices versus the pagan concept, although on the surface they appear very similar. The pagan seeks to bend the deity's will to his will while the Israelite seeks intimacy with the Almighty to better ascertain God's will.

This Shabbat is also known as Parshat Zachor, referring to the additional reading dealing with the nation of Amalek. It is read right before Purim because of its connection to Amalek through Haman, who was known as the Agagite, referring to the king of Amalek in our haftarah.

The Women's Study Group will conclude its discussions on the Book of Esther and Purim.
