Acharai Mos – Kedosheem (After Death – Holy)

This week’s Torah Reading is again a double portion, Acharai Mos – Kedosheem After Death – (Be) Holy. Really strange when you say or read it. What we are really saying is Be Holy in life so that when you die you will be holy.

The Torah suggests various ways of being Holy. These ways are through keeping the Torah Laws. It also warns us not to incorporate any of the corrupt ways of the nations we will live amongst. At a first glance this sounds obvious and something we would naturally abhor. However, we just need to look around us to see all the silly things society does to keep with the trends and styles.

We are indeed a minority. However, our minority ways were given by the Al-mighty, the Creator of the World and the Al-mighty certainly knows what a valuable trend truly is. The Torah is that valuable trend. In truth the nations of the world do recognize this fact. Billions of people have adopted portions of the Torah to live by.

We need to be proud of who we are and remain separate in a certain way to retain our Holy status. We are certainly not to isolate ourselves as we have the ultimate mission of being a light to the nations of the world. This will soon bring Moshiach and the 3rd Temple which will once again openly reveal G-dliness to the entire world.
