This week we read in the portion of Emor a lot about the propriety involved in temple ritual. The kohanim have to comport themselves in an appropriate manner whether it be in dress or grooming or lifestyle. Even the animal sacrifices had to be perfect specimens.


In these matters, and in many similar ones, the question is often asked as to whether this is really important to God, who is all knowing and all powerful. Does these details really matter in the context of the infinity of the universe?


One important answer is that these requirements are more for us than God. We need to know the importance of these rituals and without the attending requirements they would lose significance in our eyes which would be a real tragedy. So whatever we wear and whatever the place we pray looks like and how we behave is about us and our attitude as much as about what God may need from us.


Today is the 26th day of the counting of the Omer.


Congratulations to Richard and Yen Tesler for the Bar Mitzvah of their son Liem this Shabbat at the synagogue.


Congratulations to board member Lisa Balter and Grant Saacks for the Bat Mitzvah of their daughter Annabel this Sunday at the synagogue.


Both Liem and Annabel are graduates of our TriBeCa Torah Hebrew School.
