Thought of the Week with thanks to David PrinsThe festival of Pesach can be characterised as ‘Kashrut Central’ or ‘Kashrut on Steroids’. Many who are not generally so concerned about kashrut become more concerned during Pesach, while those who strictly observe kashrut throughout the year become even stricter. In a non-leap year, this week’s Torah portion of Shemini is always read on the Shabbat after Pesach. It is no coincidence that Shemini contains the laws of kashrut, to give us a strong reminder that our kashrut observance should last throughout the year, and not just at Pesach. The next portion of Tazria refers to the disease of Tzaraat, which our Sages tell us resulted primarily from inappropriate speech. We should learn an important lesson from the juxtaposition of these two Torah readings. We must be careful about the appropriateness of the words that come out of our mouth, as well as the food that goes into our mouth.
