Emor begins with specific restrictions directed at the Cohanim (priests). These restrictions pertain to marriages, sexuality and mourning. Cohanim must not come into contact with the dead, except for immediate blood relatives. They are only allowed to marry certain partners, and some kinds of physical abnormalities disqualify them from service. The food that the Cohanim eat may not be shared with 'regular' Israelites. And, just as the sacrificial offerings must be perfect, so too the priests themselves must be physically unblemished. In chapter 23, all of the 'set times' or holy days are listed and described, beginning with Shabbat and continuing with Pesach, the Omer period, Shavuot, Rosh HaShanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot. The portion ends with a review of the laws pertaining to the menorah, the bread of the altar, and the punishment for murder, maiming and blasphemy.
