This volume encompasses the first half of the Book of Leviticus. It begins with an in-depth discussion of the sacrificial system, explaining the laws of sacrifices as well as their reason. Also included is a detailed description of the daily service as practiced in the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. The narrative begins with the completion of the Tabernacle, and its dedication. We then read the story of the eighth day, when divine fire ignited the altar. This great celebration was marred by tragedy, when Aaron's two sons, Nadav and Avihu, offered "strange fire" and were killed. The reasons behind this tragedy are discussed in detail. It is this section of the Torah that deals with the laws of kashruth. Forbidden and permitted animals are described, and reasons are described, and reasons are given for the various rules. There is also a rather complete discussion of the prohibition against eating blood. This includes a digest of all the laws involving salting meat. As in previous volumes, the author presents the most complete treatment of the subject ever provided in a non-Hebrew text. Another highlight of this volume is the Yom Kippur Service. The Yom Kippur reading is quoted, and then explained in depth. It makes a person feel as if he were actually participating in this service. Translated by Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan.
