Parsha Behar

Parsha Behar

Parsha behar is the thrirty-second reading in the annual cycle.  Behar is translated as “on the mount“. I found four different spellings – “Behar”, “BeHar”, “Be-har”, or “B’har”. 

Parsha Behar Summary

Parsha Behar continues the theme of scared time. It discusses the do’s and don’ts of the sabbatical year (Shemita) and the Jubilee year (Yovel). Shemita and Yovel have very specific details about the land, debts, and indentured servants.

Bahar is the fifth Hebrew word in the text. It is highlighted in red. You can see it and additional details about this Torah portion below.
