Parshat Tzav, 5772/2012 thoughts

You can read the basics of Leviticus 6.1–8:36 here.

More blood, guts, and gore. Sigh. This reading's from Vayikra/Leviticus, so what else is new?

On the other hand, at least I have the official answer to my Tuesday, February 26, 2008 post “My kingdom for a dry cleaner,” or Mrs. Cohen’s complaint--the wives of the Kohanim/priests did not clean their husbands' bloodstained clothing.

Vayikra/Leviticus, chapter 6, verse 20:
כ כֹּל אֲשֶׁר-יִגַּע בִּבְשָׂרָהּ, יִקְדָּשׁ; וַאֲשֶׁר יִזֶּה מִדָּמָהּ, עַל-הַבֶּגֶד--אֲשֶׁר יִזֶּה עָלֶיהָ, תְּכַבֵּס בְּמָקוֹם קָדֹשׁ.
20 Whatsoever shall touch the flesh thereof shall be holy; and when there is sprinkled of the blood thereof upon any garment, thou shalt wash that whereon it was sprinkled in a holy place.
