Pity the poor barmitzvah boy or batmitzvah girl whose birthday falls during Leviticus. The middle book of the Torah has its moments - "You shall love your neighbour as yourself". But all those priestly rites and smoking entrails. And when it's not talking about sin-offerings and forbidden fats, there's leprosy and bodily discharges. The priestly book, he writes in the introduction, communicates the "absolute and austere monotheism that made Judaism unique" but also the aspiration to holiness by which finite human beings can come closer to the infinite God. Its Hebrew name Vayikra, "He called, summoned, beckoned", is "the language of invitation, friendship, love, not an order we obey," he writes.
