Every Jew a High Priest?
Parashat Korach

Shai Held

Parashat Shelach ends by introducing the laws of tzitzit, the ritual fringes worn each day by observant Jews. Parashat Korach begins with the story of Korach and his followers, a group of rebels who insist that the entire people are holy and that Moses and Aaron have thus wrongly exalted themselves above everyone else. Is there a meaningful link between these two adjacent passages? Taken together, the mitzvah of tzitzit and the story of Korach offer us powerful insights into the heart of Jewish theology and spirituality.
