Dvar for Behar AND Bechukotai
Leviticus 25:1-27:34
by Shlomo Ressler

In the middle of Parshat Behar, the Torah implores us to “perform the laws without logical explanations, the laws with logical explanations we should keep, and we should also perform them…” (25:18, free translation). The Torat Kohanim, which is brought down in Rashi (26:3), clarifies the reason why the Passuk (verse) uses different terms by explaining that it's not enough to just perform the Mitzvot (commandments), but we have to live them. It goes on to explain that if a person just performs the Mitzvot without learning more about them, they will end up doing less, and resenting those that do more.

THE WEEKLY TORAH READING-A FIRST GLANCE
B'HAR & B'CHUKOSAI (2 studies for the price of 1!)
LEVITICUS 25-27

WHEN THE SAINTS COME MARCHING BACK
B'har opens: God directed Moshe at Mt. Sinai: "Direct the children of Israel and explain to them: `When you come into the land which I AM (now too!) giving you, the land shall celebrate a sabbath to God. Six years you shall sow your field... and there shall be "shabbat shabaton", a sabbath of sabbaths (or a sabbath of rest-- Sporno notes that more agricultural acts are prohibited by the Torah during the Sabbatical Year than on Shabbat) for the land in the 7th year-- a sabbath to God... (25:1-4)'".
