The word that Amichai chooses to explore this week comes from Vayikra, Chapter Ten, Verse One and Two. These verses discuss the priestly offering that was made of a fire that was Zara.
What does Zara mean? Translations are as far as wide as “other” or “outside” to “unholy” and “alien.” Listen to Amichai explore it all in this week’s Verse Per Verse.
He is currently a rabbinical student at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America.
Amichai was a Jerusalem Fellow at the Mandel Leadership Institute in Israel (2008-2009) and is a consultant to the Reboot Network, a member of the URJ Faculty Team, and a fellow of the new Clergy Leadership Institute. He is the proud Abba of Alice, Ezra, and Charlotte-Hallel.
