Emor: Chapter 28

The sacrifice of the Omer


This section tells us about the commandment to offer the sacrifice of the Omer in order to unite the Matron and her children, Yisrael. The sacrifice is made of barley and offered so as to bring love between a wife and her husband. The wife of harlotry flees the temple so that she will not perish from the test of the waters of Sotah. We are told that the secret here is that there are two sisters, the woman of valor and the wife of harlotry.
