*Kedoshim, K’doshim, or Qedoshim (קְדֹשִׁים — Hebrew for “HOLY ONES,”* the 14th word, and the first distinctive word, in the parashah) is the 30th weekly TORAH portion (פָּרָשָׁה, parashah) in the annual Jewish cycle of TORAH reading and the seventh in the Book of Leviticus. It constitutes Leviticus 19:1–20:27.
*The parashah tells of:*
1. ➡️THE LAWS OF HOLINESS and ETHICAL BEHAVIOR,
2. ➡️THE TEN COMMANDMENTS,
3. ➡️PENALTIES for SEXUAL TRANSGRESSIONS.
The parashah is made up of 3,229 Hebrew letters, 868 Hebrew words, 64 verses, and 109 lines in a TORAH Scroll (סֵפֶר תּוֹרָה, Sefer TORAH).
➡️In leap years (for example, 2022 and 2024), parashah KEDOSHIM is read separately.
➡️In common years (for example, 2020, 2021, 2023, 2025, and 2026), PARASHAH KEDOSHIM is combined with the previous parashah, ACHAREI MOT, to help achieve the needed number of weekly readings.
KEDOSHIM In A Nutshell
The PARSHAH OF *KEDOSHIM* begins with the statement:
“You shall be *HOLY,* for I, the LORD YAHUVEH [YAHWEH] your ELOHIM [GOD], am HOLY.”
This is followed by dozens of *MITZOT (DIVINE COMMANDMENTS)* through which the Jew sanctifies himself or herself and relates to the HOLINESS OF YAH.
➡️the prohibition against idolatry,
➡️the *MITZVAH* of CHARITY,
➡️the principle of equality before THE LAW,
➡️SHABBAT or SABBA’OTH,
➡️Honesty in business,
➡️Honour and Awe of one’s parents,
➡️the Sacredness of Life.

SHABBAT SHALOM/A PEACEFUL SABBATH
*THE CREATOR YAH’S HOLINESS: THE CORE OR FOUNDATION OF THE CREATOR YAH’S 1. SABBATH or SABBA’OTH; 2. YAH’S SALVATION; 3. EVANGELISM [, Prophecy, Teaching of YAH’S WORD, etc]; 4. TOTAL TRANSFORMATION; 5. YAH’S CREATION!* These are all connected and therfore must be emphasised continually to YAH’S People! – Saturday 7th May 2022/IYAR [IYYAR] 6
SHABBAT SHALOM Brethren in YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH!
Praying that all is well with you and your loved ones…
THE 6TH AND 7TH DAYS OF THE WEEK:
*Yesterday, Friday 6th May 2022 was PREPARATION DAY for THE CREATOR, YAH’S SABBATH, HalleluYAH for THE 6TH DAY OF THE WEEK Speaks of THE CREATION OF MANKIND from 4 major elements namely, 1 grain of earth/dust/soil; 1 drop of water ; 1 puff of wind/air and a little fire.* There were other elements which represent COLD AND HEAT, DRYNESS and MOISTURE used as detailed in THE BOOK OF ENOCH however these are the four main ones which were used with the foundational purpose of giving mankind TOTAL DOMINION OVER ALL OF YAH’S CREATION, that is to say that, in order that everything in nature which is formed of earth should be in subordination to mankind!
1. A grain of earth/soil/dust in order that everything formed of earth/dust/soil should be subject to him;
2. A Drop of Water in order that everything which is in the seas and rivers should be his;
3. A puff of Air/Wind in order that all kinds of creatures which fly in the air might be given into him;
4. The heat of fire so that all the beings that are fiery in nature, and the celestial hosts, might be his helpers.
DAY 6 ATTRIBUTE OF THE CREATOR, YAH SHADDAI is YESOD which means FOUNDATION!
Yesod can be defined as the divine attribute which binds YAH to HIS creation in a bond of empathy and love. This is why the sefira of Yesod is also called “saint” (“tzadik” in Hebrew) as in the verse “a saint is the foundation of the world” (Proverbs 10:25). A tzadik, or saint, arouses mankind to seek YAH. At the same time he draws down YAH’S compassion and goodness into the world. *Thus he is the foundation of the world.*
Mishle 10:25 Orthodox Jewish Bible
25 As the whirlwind passeth, so is the rashah (wicked) no more, but the tzaddik (Saint, righteous one) is a YESOD OLAM (an everlasting foundation).
King James Version
25 As the whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no more: but THE RIGHTEOUS is an EVERLASTING FOUNDATION.
On THE 6TH DAY OF THE WEEK, Mankind sinned against YAH SHADDAI by eating of THE FRUIT OF DISOBEDIENCE [Genesis 3] *thereby TRANSGRESSING YAH’S TORAH/LAW* while in THE GARDEN OF EDEN and so resulting in becoming THE BROKEN VAV! Chavvah [a.k.a Eve] allowed her Evil Inclination/Passion/Desire to overcome her as written in James 1:13-14.
It was declared at THE BEGINNING OF TIME as per Genesis 2:1-3 that Mankind is given 6 days to work and on THE 7TH DAY, Mankind is to follow in THE CREATOR/MAKER’S FOOTSTEPS by RESTING hence THE 7TH DAY IS CALLED SABBA’OTH! *Within the word, SABBA’OTH, we have to words in THE HEBREW LANGUAGE which in English are REST and SIGN, HalleluYAH* HalleluYAH HalleluYAH HalleluYAH HalleluYAH HalleluYAH HalleluYAH HalleluYAH . *This word SABBA’OTH is written in various HOLY BIBLICAL SCRIPTURE PASSAGES including Matthew 11:28-30; John 20; Hebrews 4; etc.*
And so, today, Saturday 7th May 2022 is THE 7TH DAY OF THE WEEK, HalleluYAH HalleluYAH HalleluYAH ! GLORY TO YAH SHADDAI for the gift of life and sustainable, in YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH’S NAME, AMEN!
THE DAY 7 OF CREATION ATTRIBUTE OF THE CREATOR, YAH SHADDAI is MALCHUT which means KINGDOM, MAJESTY, KINGSHIP, EXALTEDNESS, etc. Remember that THE MILLENNIAL SABBATH REIGN OF YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH on earth occurs in the 7th Millenium from Creation [Revelation 20]! *The ATTRIBUTE OF MALCHUT is related to this! This ATTRIBUTE is also related YAH’S SABBATHS hence Colossians 2:16-17!* Do Not allow any body to judge you or pass judgement against you or mock you for observing THE CREATOR, YAH’S Calendar because what we are doing now in relation to *Leviticus 23 is a foreshadow of what is to come – what is to come in THE Coming MILLENNIAL SABBATH REIGN OF YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH on earth !* So, take heart and do YAH’S WILL accordingly as per Matthew 6:10! For you are SET APART by and for YAH SHADDAI only! The standard of this world repels YAH’S HOLINESS which is embedded in HIS CALENDAR [HEBREW CALENDAR]! See Revelation 12.
