Sh’mini – Eighth This was the 8th day of Aharon and his sons time of consecration in the newly built Tent of Meeting. There is so much significance in the number 8. We know that creation was completed on the 6th day and on the 7th day Elohim rested and this has been His instruction to all His people since the beginning - REST. Nothing has changed regarding this!

Tzav – Command Vayikra or Leviticus must be one of the most beautiful books – I think I may end up saying that for all of them though.
