During the dedication of the Mishkan, we find two distinct ceremonies:
first, the seven day "miluim," and second, the
special korbanot on "Yom Ha'Shmini."
Why was there a need for both? By examining the details
of these two ceremonies, this week's shiur will attempt to explain
their significance in Sefer Vayikra.
Why do Parshiot Tazria/Metzora interrupt the logical flow
from Parshat Shmini to Parshat Acharei Mot?
In case this sounds a bit complicated, don't worry, we'll
begin this week's shiur by first explaining this question. Then
we'll use its answer to help us arrive at a more comprehensive
understanding of this section of Sefer Vayikra.
