Parashat Bechukotai deals with what sort of pledges we make to God in the Temple: Who makes offerings? How much do they offer?
Rabbi Dr. Reb Mimi Feigelson, Mashpiah Ruchanit (Spiritual Mentor) and senior lecturer of Rabbinics and Chassidic Thought at the Schechter Rabbinical Seminary, suggests that although this parasha challenges our sense of fairness we can find ways of reading the text that understand that everyone has value.
