𝐏𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐓𝐢𝐭𝐥𝐞: Emor (אמור): The thirty-first reading from the Torah is called Emor (אמור), a title that comes from the first verse of the reading, which says, “Then Yah said to Moses, ‘Speak (emor) to the priests, the sons of Aaron …'” (Leviticus 21:1). Emor begins with special laws of sanctity, propriety and purity for the priesthood. Leviticus 23 provides an overview of the biblical calendar, a listing of Yah’s appointed times.

𝐑𝐞𝐟𝐥𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧: Did you know that multiple times a year The Creator of The Universe has set appointments with YOU! These appointments are Feast and Holy Days and they are covered in Chapter 23 of Leviticus in this week’s Torah portion. These days are: Passover, Feast of Unleavened Bread, First Fruits, Shavuot, Yom Teruah (Rosh Hashanah), Yom Kippur and Sukkot.
During these times there is an opportunity for breakthrough, blessing, fellowship, remembering our history and fun. If you had an appointment with your favorite celebrity, a King or Queen, a date with your crush or spouse or even a doctor’s appointment you probably wouldn’t miss it or be late.
Adonai love us and wants to commune with us don’t miss your appointment with him!
