The weekly parshah (Torah portion) … well, that’s a bit complicated, because of the way different people in different places observe the Holy Days. For those who observe 8 days of Passover, which includes many, perhaps most congregations outside of Eretz Yisroel (the land of Israel), this Shabbat’s portion is the one for the 8th day of Pesach: Deuteronomy 15:19-16:17, about the Passover offering and the counting of the Omer. For those who observe 7 days of Passover, which includes all congregations in Israel and many (but not all) Reform, Reconstructionist, Renewal and some other congregations elsewhere, the portion is Acharei Mot (Leviticus 16:1-18:30), which includes laws about Yom Kippur and various sexual practices. (It’s in this portion that we encounter the infamous line that is most often used as a justification for homophobia.)
