Parshah for Parenting - Tzav 5769

Well, we're on to the second portion in the book of Leviticus.
Which means writing "Parsha for Parenting" just got a lot more difficult.
You see, the book of Leviticus is all about the sacrifices in the Temple.
It talks all about the sacrifices:
When, Who, Why, How
Even what to wear.

Of course, Jews no longer offer sacrifices at the Temple.
I've heard of precocious children, in preparation for a bar mitzvah around this time of year,
trying to re-enact the ancient Temple rites.

This afternoon I was home alone with two boys and dozens of pounds of meat to freeze.
Rami was characteristically content to remain strapped into his car seat, observing.
In the midst of dividing chicken cutlets and stew beef,
I realized Ashi was sounding busy but quiet...

(Do you think he has Leviticus on the brain?)
