Rosner’s Torah Talk: Parshat Kedoshim with Rabbi Jeffrey Weill

Rabbi Jeffrey Weill has been the rabbi of Ezra Habonim, the Niles Township Jewish Congregation (Illinois) since July 2012.  Rabbi Weill was an advocacy and community relations specialist for Jewish organizations, including the Jewish United Fund-Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago and the American Jewish Committee.

Parshat Kedoshim is about holiness. How does one become holy? According to our parsha, it is by keeping the prohibition against idolatry, the mitzvah of charity, the principle of equality before the law, Shabbat, sexual morality, honesty in business, and more.

But why be holy? Rabbi Well attempted to answer this question.
