Parshah Bechukotai

You probably already know that the Torah isn’t all rainbows and angels. Mirroring the angry tone of this week’s Torah story, G-dcast gets kinda dark and cranky for a change.

Parshah Bechukotai
Leviticus 26:3-27:34
Torah Reading for Week of May 11-17, 2014 – Iyar 11-17, 5774

G‑d promises that if the people of Israel will keep His commandments, they will enjoy material prosperity and dwell secure in their homeland. But He also delivers a harsh “rebuke,” warning of the exile, persecution and other evils that will befall them if they abandon their covenant with Him.

Nevertheless, “Even when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away; nor will I ever abhor them, to destroy them and to break My covenant with them; for I am the L‑rd their G‑d.”

The Parshah concludes with the rules on how to calculate the values of different types of pledges made to G‑d, and the mitzvah of tithing produce and livestock. Source: http://www.chabad.org/parshah/article_cdo/aid/2098/jewish/Bechukotai-in-a-Nutshell.htm
