Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “One must be physically sound.”

To be a korban and to be a Priest, one must be physically sound, along with the danger that this entails.

For an animal to gore, to damage, or to have relations with a person is forbidden, but these despicable acts must be part of the whole range of possibilities.

Only with the possibility of reaching what is truly evil can one fully achieve what is truly good.

–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
