Metzorah – A Leper

The week’s Torah Reading is called Metzorah – A Leper, dealing with the unusual skin rashes called leprosy. It is also Shabbos Hagodal, the big Shabbos that comes before Pesach. On this day the Jewish people showed their great faith and strength by taking the sheep they would soon use for a sacrifice and tie it to a pole. The sheep was an Egyptian idol and yet the Jewish nation was not afraid to go against the Egyptians by this act. This was a very positive strong act of faith the Jewish people performed.

This is an important reminder for us to have strong faith in the Al-mighty. The special reading from the prophet Malachi, tells us that we must remember the laws that Moshe gave over and this will lead to the Al-mighty sending Eliyahoo the prophet before the special great day.

We have a special cup that we prepare for Eliyahoo at the Pesach Seder. Let us hope he indeed comes and ushers in that very special day, the redemption of the Jewish nation brought on in part by a continued strong faith.
