No one is asking your opinion – Parashat Shemini

Rabbi Alon Anava – Reflecting on one part of this week’s parasha (Shemini) of Aaron Hakohen’s (the High Priest) two sons who died right after the dedication of the Mishkan (Tabernacle), Rabbi Anava gives one of the reasons given by our Sages as to why this happened in the midst of such a celebratory time in our Nation’s history. It takes some patience until the end of the lecture to get the entire point of lecture. Also, Shemini is of particular importance to me as it’s my bar mitzvah parasha (which feels out of place data wise due to this year being a shana mehuberet (Jewish leap year) as Shemini is about a month earlier than usual).
