Well as it is about a week to go to Passover, we've been engaged or conscripted in a thorough cleaning of the household (Mrs K makes my ex drill sarge look like a laid back pussy) and been on ruthless inquisition in respect of expelling chametz, except for a bit which has been hidden by my brother Samuel for us to find on Passover eve (my brother's idea that we could Flambé my fine malt Scotch with a brisket, in keeping with burning chametz, didn't go down well, so I've instead done a repro agreement with Mr & Mrs Chang of no 65 in our street).
This week , in our Torah study,we're going to be tackling the weekly Torah portion- Leviticus 16 to 18- covering atonement, blood and sexual sin. Heavy duty stuff. But that's why we are observant Jews; there is little point in trying to ignore the more challenging areas of faith and proclaim oneself to be a part of it.
