Parsha Mitzvot: Tzav: Mitzvah 143 – Concept 353

“Any sin-offering from which some blood has been brought to the Tent of Meeting, to effect atonement within the Holy, shall not be eaten; it shall be burned with fire (Vayikra 6:23) We are forbidden to eat the meat of the inner sin-offering (Rambam, Hilchot Ma’aseh ha-Korbanot – The Laws of the Sacrificial Procedure).


The laws of the Chatat are introduced as Torah, to teach us that just as f not for the compassion of the Creator of All Things, whatever is being done to the animal should be done to the sinner; one who studies these laws, of which the writing is the body, the reading/study is the soul giving life to the written word, his involved study searching for the reasons and lessons of these laws, brings them to life, effecting their power as if he had offered the Chatat. (Ramah)
