Summary of The Weekly Torah Reading:
Note: The Shabbos Torah Reading is divided into 7 sections. Each section
is called an Aliya [literally: Go up] since for each Aliya, one person
"goes up" to make a bracha [blessing] on the Torah Reading.
1st, 2nd and 3rd Aliya: The laws of purity and impurity as they pertain to
childbirth are discussed. The basic laws of Tzaras, its diagnosis by a
Kohain, the possibility of a quarantine, and the laws of Tzaras as it relates
to healthy and infected skin are discussed.
4th, 5th, 6th, & 7th Aliyot: The laws of Tzaras as it relates to a burn, a
bald patch, dull white spots, and the presence of a Tzaras blemish on
clothing is detailed.
