Tazria -Metzora

Tazria Metzora two parshiot which cover Leviticus 12:1-15:33 must be the favorite parshiot of dermatologists for in it there are the regulations for dealing with those whose skin (and clothes and home) are afflicted with tzarat, symptoms that were inflicted on an individual due to their sins.

We have come far... we don't blame people for their afflictions. So on that note, for no other reason than it feels righ today... I post a Mi shebeirach.
(Lyrics by Debbie Friedman and Drorah Setel)

Mi shebeirach avoteinu
M'kor habracha l'imoteinu

May the source of strength who blessed the ones before us,
Help us find the courage to make our lives a blessing
And let us say: Amen.

Mi shebeirach imoteinu
M'kor habracha l'avoteinu

Bless those in need of healing with refuah sh'leimah
The renewal of body, the renewal of spirit
And let us say: Amen.

To those in Blacksburg, VA... all our thoughts and prayers are with you

The paper cast Mi shebereiach is from Allison Tobin Clark a North Carolina artist.
