Torah Pearls - Kedoshim ((Leviticus 19:1-20:27)In this episode of The Original Torah Pearls, Kedoshim (Leviticus 19:1-20:27), we discuss what it means to profane the name of the Lord, who is “the Lord sabaoth”, the difference between rob and steal, lie and deceive, and the origin of “Love God, love your neighbor” as the summary of the Torah. All this and more in this week’s Torah Pearls.

I look forward to reading your comments!

  1. Nehemia, can you please explain verse 23 in Leviticus 19, does it apply to fruit all over the world, like in the usa, or just the land of Israel, cause the verse says when you enter into the land, cause what about supermarket fruit that we dont know is orlah, and what if we cannot get access to certified fruit from a tree older then 3-5 years, I hope you can answer soon as possible for I did not know about this until yesterday when I came across the verse.

  2. The explanation Nehemiah gave regarding the feeding of the poor (Lev. 19: 9-10) is so wonderful. This concept provides the poor & the stranger with food for their bodies and dignity for the soul. Well-being has been replaced with welfare by taking away the use of their hands and replacing it with an attitude of self-entitlement which quenches the desire to improve oneself.

    By keeping this commandment there would be no need to steal or lie regarding the fruit of the field that was taken thus benefiting the owner of the field & vineyard.

    Also the stranger would see that obedient Israel is a light to all nations:
    “So keep and do them, for that is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the peoples who will hear all these statutes and say, ‘Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.”

  3. I would like to thank you guys for teaching us some very important things in the Word
    a comment on prohibition of mixing species with and without seed
    if the prohibition is against fertility then it would be forbidden because there are no seeds present in the fruits to reproduce
    like a man with man and a woman with woman
    to be very plain spoken ; any sexual activity done that would not result in fertility is wrong it is not holy sexual activity because it will not produce fruit
    before the flood , the earth was corrupt
    meaning ? the flesh of men and animals and angels had interbred and produced offspring that were corrupt?
    the flesh of the animals and man had come from the earth
    was that the earth that was corrupt

  4. Thank your for sharing your wonderful hebrew/Torah knowledge with us all Nehemia, abundant blessings always

  5. Thank you Nehemia, I wished you would open a Torah class for serious students who want to further understand the Torah. Awesome program as always blessings

  6. Couldn’t it be that the sheep cloth not be mixed with goat a parallel to mean if we belong to YHVH we where sheep’s clothes?
    Just a thought for conversing.

  7. Fascinating but I got a bit lost towards the end. Are we not supposed to wear mixed fabrics as in Deut. 22:11 seems to suggest?

  8. I just Love your Torah Pearls and you, Nehemia and Keith and Jono, do this very well and keep it interesting, as well as educational and you also All have a great sense of humour. Did it rub off from Michael Rood, I wonder? as he is just as “funny” sometimes as well as serious. It breaks the ice, doesn’t it?

  9. Keep Keeping On! It is refreshing to hear all the words over and over again. If we never meet, may we see each other on that Mountain Top.

  10. Nehemia -What is in ones heart and mind, would this not be the same with ‘Thou shalt not covet” as you explained in v-17? Keith- mixed seed, could we apply the teaching in Matt. 13 the tares and wheat?

  11. This was wonderful! Home and sick so no Shul for me but i have been well fed and don’t feel left out. This was likw Torah Talk at Shul. Thank you, thank you!
