Last Day of Passover, Empathy, and Kindness to The Stranger Who Lives Among You?

Inspiring Critical Thinking and Community via Books, Lessons, and Story

This week, again, there is no regular Torah reading, because this week’s Torah portion ( for ) is a special reading, in the Diaspora (outside of the Land of Israel, thank you, HebCal):

Pesach VIII (on Shabbat) / פֶּסַח ח׳

Torah Portion: Deuteronomy 14:22-16:17; Numbers 28:19-25

  1. 1: Deuteronomy 14:22-29 · 8 p’sukim·
  2. 2: Deuteronomy 15:1-18 · 18 p’sukim·
  3. 3: Deuteronomy 15:19-23 · 5 p’sukim·
  4. 4: Deuteronomy 16:1-3 · 3 p’sukim·
  5. 5: Deuteronomy 16:4-8 · 5 p’sukim·
  6. 6: Deuteronomy 16:9-12 · 4 p’sukim·
  7. 7: Deuteronomy 16:13-17 · 5 p’sukim·
  8. maf: Numbers 28:19-25 · 7 p’sukim

The commandment for this week is to remember having been a stranger, somewhere, and to therefore be kind to “the stranger that lives among you.”

It seems that we can Do Better:
