Parsha Sh’mini is a beautiful picture of the ultimate purpose of Scripture and the heart of God. In our everyday lives, we are on the constant cycle, some may say hamster wheel, of work days and weekends. We deal with the stresses of life all while longing for the rest of the weekend. In parsha Sh’mini, we see the concept of the eighth day, a day that connotes a continuation of the peace and completeness we find in the Shabbat.
