Parshat haShavua: Emor Leviticus 21:1-24:23
Parshat Emor deals primarily with two topics: the holiness of a caste of human beings and the holiness of time.
Aaron, Moses' brother and Aaron's descendants were designated to be the Jewish society's priests. Their responsibilities included overseeing the offering of sacrifices on behalf o the community and on behalf of individuals. They were not given an inheritance of land as the other tribes. They and the rest of the tribe of Levi were paid through tithing and eating the sacrifices that were offered. Thus they were the charge of the rest of the people.
