Parsha Tazria – 7 Days to Life
The Torah tells us that we should establish special Levite cities of refuge in the
. When someone murders someone else inadvertently, a relative (also known as the blood avenger) of the victim can take revenge on the inadvertent murderer according to Torah law. However, this can only happen if the inadvertent murderer is not in one of the 6 cities of refuge. (There were 3 east of the Jordan River and 3 west of the land of Israel Jordan River.)
We need to be very careful of who we chose to spend time with. If we surround ourselves with the Levites (great men) of our generation, we’ll be able to raise ourselves to the loftiest of spiritual heights.
