Parashat Shemini:Choices & Consequences?

For Parashat Shemini, this week’s Torah reading, one image, Choice & Consequence reveals the parallels between the deaths of Cain & Abel and Aaron’s sons Nadav & Avihu. The other image, Sanction & Censure visually demonstrates the polarities between those creatures that are deemed kosher and those that are not according to our laws. The interpretations for these images may be found on pages 156-157 of my book, Between Heaven & Earth: An Illuminated Torah Commentary (Pomegranate, 2009). It is available from Pomegranate by phone: 1-800-227-1428 http://www.pomegranate.com/a166.html.
