Tzav – Command

This week’s Torah Reading is called Tzav – Command. It is also Shabbos Hagodal – The Great Shabbos, the Shabbos before Passover.

Right near the very beginning we find repeated the concept of keeping a constant flame burning on the alter. This can certainly imply that our lives are constantly called upon to make sacrifices.

We have accepted a commitment at Mt. Sinai, to be the Al-mighty’s chosen people. We have a Torah to follow (way of life) that is indeed holy and special.

The concept of Shabbos HaGodal also shows this special bond we have with the Al-mighty. We went ahead and took a major idol of the Egyptians, a lamb, tied it to a poll and letting them know that we were going to kill the lamb, as well as eat it and sprinkle the blood on our door post. It was not going to be just 1 lamb but many lambs as each Jew was obligated to eat a portion from the lamb.

This also marked our final stage of exile and our leaving Egypt, our redemption.

As we continue to show our constant attachment to the Al-mighty, keeping the fires constantly burning in our heart for the Al-mighty, we will soon experience the miracle of our final redemption and the building of the 3rd Holy Temple where we can once again do the Korban Pesach – Passover Sacrifice, and be fully attached to the Al-mighty.
