This week we read Parshah Metzora, found in Vayikra (Leviticus) 14:1-15:33. The haftorah portion is II Kings 7:3-20.
Both texts this week concern those (people or things) in ritual impurity. The Torah describes how purification can be achieved while the haftorah looks into how four lepers reacted and the consequences to their actions.
