There are a few words which will be used over the course of every Parsha , which you may be unfamiliar with. Here is a handy guide to help you follow the lessons and hock (a fancy Jewish
word for schmooze, which is another fancy Jewish word for discuss) like a ben torah:
Yom Kippur– A holiday and one of the holiest days of the year. The high Priest would perform a special service in the mishkan so the sins of the Jews would be atoned
Leket– A commandment to help the poor. Stalks of wheat which fall to the ground should be left for the poor.
Shichicha- A commandment to help the poor. Bundles of wheat which are forgotten in the field should be left for the poor.
Peah- A commandment to help the poor. The corner of your field should be left for the poor.
Orlah- The first 3 years in the life of a tree, all of its fruits are called orlah and cannot be eaten
