Parshas Tzav - Chametz and the Ravages of Time- First Aliyah
Speaker:   Hauer, Rabbi Moshe
Series: Weekly Parsha Shiur 5777 - Parsha Plan
Lecture Details:  Parshas Tzav continues the theme in Sefer Vayikra of Korbanos. One of the commandments mentioned here is that in general, there cannot be chametz in the Beis Hamikdash. We don't bring offerings of bread, rather of matza. One reason for this is that chametz is subject to the ravages of time. Leavened bread needs time in order for it to rise and become fluffy. Besides for the alacrity that is required of the Kohanim, and by extension us as well, in our servitude of Hashem, time is something that is particularly sacred. When we were given the mitzva of Rosh Chodesh we were in a sense put in charge of time in this world. Hashem Himself is above time, as His Shem Havaya suggests that He was, is, and always will be. Hashem is also called Emes. He is constant and unchanging, not affected by time the way human beings are. In the physical world we are subjected to time, but in a spiritual sense, our eternal neshamos (souls) are not and we try to tap into that in this world.
