Shmini: Chapter 15

"Neither shall you make yourselves unclean with them"


We are told that whoever eats unclean foods defiles his body and soul, and will never be able to recover from this defilement; he will never cling to the Bundle of Life. Rabbi Shimon tells Rabbi Elazar that some day God will purify the children of Yisrael with the water of Chesed, and that those who cling to God are called Holy.
