Do not perform the practices of the land of Egypt in which you dwelled; do not perform the practices of the land of Canaan to which I bring you, and do not follow their traditions. Carry out My laws and safeguards..." Mrs. Smiles addresses the following questions: If Egypt and Canaan were so terrible, why did Hashem put Bnei Yisrael there to begin with? What practices did Hashem want them to avoid? The major ones, idol worship and promiscuity were already covered in other verses and commandments. Are these different practices Hashem wanted them to avoid? Nation's Nemesis: Acharei Mot, KedoshimDescriptionChumash Vayikra, Parshat Achrei Mot-KedoshimRebbetzin Shira Smiles2017-05-04 1:03:06
