Parashat Emor, in its entirety, from:

  • its rules concerning the fitness of kohanim
  • its roster of the annual festivals and holy days 
  • the commandment to kindle the golden menorah and
  • place freshly baked show-bread upon the golden show-bread table, and
  • concluding with the incident of the blasphemer

- is a lesson in how we are to live our lives, day by day, in the presence of G-d in the world.
