Portion Summary

The last reading from the book of Leviticus is called Bechukotai (??????), which means “In My Statutes.” The name comes from the first verse of the reading, which begins with the words “If you walk in My statutes ...” (Leviticus 26:3). This last reading from Leviticus promises blessings and rewards for Israel if they will keep the Torah, but punishment and curses if they break the commandments of the Torah. The last chapter discusses laws pertaining to vows, valuations and tithes. In most years, synagogues read Bechukotaitogether with the preceding portion, Behar.
