[English: Leviticus]; the third of the Books of the Pentateuch, or the “Chumash,” or the Five Books of Moses. This Book is also called “Torat Kohanim,” the “Law of the Priests,” because it deals with matters relating to the Kohen and Levi “classes;” mainly relating to the Temple, such as Sacrifices of various kinds, and ritual cleanness and uncleanness.
