Metzora מצורע “Leper”
LEProSY IN THE BIBLE
What is commonly known as leprosy today is actually Hansen's Disease. It affects periphary nerve endings, skin, upper respiratory tract, eyes, and nose. Biblical leprosy is a physical blemish brought on by a spiritual ailment. The sin of gossip and slander are seen to be the root cause of biblical leprosy. This is because Miriam became leprous when she spoke against her brother Moses.The video to the right is an exposition of the Torah portion by my acquaintance Rabbi Shapira.
