In this week's parasha, Emor, we have at the beginning of it talking about what the Kohanim can and can't do. Next, we have later in the same parasha details of the Yomim Tovim. What's the connection: why is the topic of Festivals together with the Halachos of Kohanim Gadolim?

  • @DoubleAA thank you very much for the simple answer, I'm looking as to what the common thread between these two section of chumash have in common. – Russell Apr 29 at 12:07
  • There's simply no reason to think such a thing exists any more than any other random two pieces of Torah. – Double AA Apr 29 at 12:14
