Shabbat Acharei Mot-Kedoshim (Lev. 16:1-20:27)

Courtesy of Julie Seltzer and

Not nearly as exciting as Metzorah, Acharei Mot discusses a variety of laws and actions. There’s some funny ideas, like “putting” the sins of the entire tribe of Israel onto a goat and setting it free in the wilderness. Then there are the details of what needs to be done during Yom Kippur.

Yom Kippur got us thinking about fasting (which is NOT something we do around Passover). Fasting got us thinking about break-the-fast. Break-the-fast got us thinking about breakfast. So limited only by your creativity and the category of food which you have been assigned, please bring breakfast food. IN ADDITION, please bring one ingredient for omlettes.
