Shabbat Pesach 8 (Deuteronomy 15:19 – 16:17 & Numbers 28:19 – 28:25)

As mentioned last week, in honor of Passover we are taking a break from the Leviticus cycle to jump forward in Torah. This week, our first stop is Numbers 28, where we read about more sacrifices (oh, THAT’S different from what we’ve been reading in Leviticus. Sigh. Haven’t we suffered enough already?).

…and onward to Deuteronomy 15, where, like looking into a mirror, we read about the holiday of Passover (along with the other 2 of the “Shalosh Regalim”, or in-gethering festivals).

So, limited only by your creativity and the category of food which you have been assigned, please bring food that is “dayenu” (enough).

Not sure what this Torah portion is about? You can find a brief summary in The Edible Torah’s “Condensed Guide to the Weekly Torah Readings”. For more information on what The Edible Torah is all about, along with insight on how to set up a pot-luck Shabbat experience, check out “The Edible Torah”.
