Did You Know? Portion Vayikra


How many of you have ever wondered about the original context of the sin sacrifice? Did you know that Leviticus 4 is still relevant for us today for instruction in our lives?

Rico is sick this week so I am filling in for him.



  1. I have only watched this video once so far, but it seems to me that it might be for a cleansing of the Altar from a blemish or stain that is put on it by childbirth that is unseen by our mortal eyes. I am at a complete loss in regard to what in the childbirth process places a blemish on the Altar.
    I am trying to wrap my head around the blood actually and only being a cleansing agent for the Altar
    rather than an antidote for our unintentional sin?
    Wow, help us out here Ryan! You’re the one that made this mess! 🙂

  2. Ryan thank you so much for this. It is very helpful. Forgive me if I just missed it but you were talking about offering chattat for completion of vows, birth,etc but I didn’t catch why that was the appropriate sacrifice ( other than that it is the mitzvot). I thought it was great at demonstrating what it was not but I missed what it was for. Thank you Yah bless you and shalom
