Parashat Naso, God’s Forgiveness is Powerful, Restoring, and Regenerative to Our Soul’s.


Bamidbar / Numbers 5:1-4 says saying,
  “tsav et-benei yisrael vishalkhu min-hamakhane kol-tsarua
vekhol-zav vekhol tame lanafesh”
(5:2 ‘Command
the sons of Israel that they send away from the camp every leper and everyone having a discharge and
everyone who is unclean because of a dead person.
) There are many levels of “unclean”
as defined in the Scriptures.  Here God commands Moshe to instruct the people to send away the person
who is found to be unclean.  The one with Tsaraat (leper) or with the skin discharge are permanently
unclean whereas the one who has touched a dead person can become clean to rejoin the community again. 
Each of these types of uncleanliness requires different lengths of separation from the congregation and more
or less vigorous methods of restoration.  In verses 5:5-10
we find a difference from the previous mitzvot (commands).  The previous situation dealt with someone
becoming unclean; here God deals with personal sin between people and the need for reconciliation.  This
week we will study these ten verses from sefer Bamidbar 5:1-10
to see how the scriptures reveal the condition of our heart, our faith, and train us to show biblical love toward
one another.

Duane D. Miller received his Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. Degree in Chemical Engineering from The University of Akron Ohio. He is currently a Chemical Engineering Researcher. Duane’s research expertise has focused upon functional materials development for the control, conversion, and release of process gases in Energy production technologies. His R&D interests include computational chemistry, developing novel technologies for converting biomass to fuels and studying their fundamental interactions during the chemical conversion process. His past experience includes sorbent development for pre- and post-combustion CO2 and SO2 capture, selective absorption of H2S from methane streams, O2 capture for oxy-fuel combustion, photocatalytic reduction of alcohols, NOx reduction catalysis, the development of oxygen carriers to combust fossil fuels (CH4 and coal) for the chemical looping combustion processes, and the extraction of rare earth elements using patent pending sorbents. His research expertise has focused on operando-characterization using Infrared, Raman, and UV-Vis spectroscopy to observe the nature of the catalytic active sites and reaction intermediates under realistic reaction conditions, allowing direct correlation of molecular/electronic structures with catalyst performance during Gas-Solid / Liquid-Solid Adsorption and Photocatalytic Processes with real time online analysis of reaction products using ICP-MS and mass spectrometry. His current work involves a multi-disciplinary approach to developing, understanding, and improving the catalytic gasification of coal and methane, high temperature chemical looping combustion, and the catalytic decomposition and gasification of biomass and coal using novel microwave reactor.​ He has been studying the Hebrew Scriptures and the Torah for 20+ years and sharing what he has learned.
