I am re-running Shemini this week because last Shabbat, while in Israel, the Torah Portion was Shemini Shel Pesach – the 8th day of Pesach. This was unknown to me until I investigated the Jewish calendar.

Here is a marvelous teaching about the Messiah and why the Jews designated an additional day at the end of Unleavened Bread week for a special celebration.
