Following the inspirational stories of Sefer Bereishit (Genesis) and the intense drama of Sefer Shemot (Exodus), it may superficially appear that Sefer Vayikra (Leviticus) doesn’t continue to “pack the Biblical punch.” The name “Leviticus” comes from Levi, the father of the priestly tribe, and much of its 27 chapters are devoted to describing the priestly rituals in great detail.
Since most of these practices are not observed today (since we don’t have the Holy Temple), some modern readers have difficulty finding practical significance in Sefer Vayikra, and thus miss out on its eternal values.
Don’t fall into this misconception! With a careful reading of the Book of Leviticus, you’ll gain tremendous insights into mastering your lower inclinations and understand how you can serve God.
