Reading the Bible Very Slowly : Shemini, שְּׁמִינִי (Eighth), Leviticus 9:1-11:47

Shemini, Sh’mini, or Shmini (שְּׁמִינִי — Hebrew for "eighth,” the third word, and the first distinctive word, in the parashah) is the 26th weekly Torah portion (פָּרָשָׁה, parashah) in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading and the third in the book of Leviticus. It constitutes Leviticus 9:1–11:47. Jews in the Diaspora read it the 25th or 26th Sabbath after Simchat Torah, generally in late March or April. In years when the first day of Passover falls on a Sabbath (as it did in 2012), Jews in Israel and Reform Jews can read Shemini one week before Conservative and Orthodox Jews in the Diaspora. In such years, Jews in Israel and Reform Jews celebrate Passover for seven days and thus read the next parashah (in 2012, Shemini) on the Sabbath one week after the first day of Passover, while Conservative and Orthodox Jews in the Diaspora celebrate Passover for eight days and read the next parashah (in 2012, Shemini) one week later.[1]

The parashah tells of the consecration of the Tabernacle, the death of Nadab and Abihu, and the dietary laws of kashrut.
