This week’s parsha begins with a description of the laws and responsibilities of the kohanim, the holy priests. The kohanim keep the fire on the altar burning at all times and are able to eat the meat of the sin and guilt offerings, and the leftovers of the meal offering. As I look across my pre-Pesach kitchen, nearly empty fridge and bare cupboards, fire roasted meat prepared anywhere but my kitchen sounds pretty good right now. This last Shabbat before Pesach, Shabbat HaGadol, is the perfect time for a barbeque. We’re going to cookout this Shabbat, so c’mon baby light the fire!
