Summary of Today's Chumash
The first aliyah begins with the law of a woman who gives birth to a male child, and the law of bris (circumcision) when the child is eight days old. The law of a woman who gives birth to a female child is given next. After that, this aliyah begins to describe the steps to be taken when a person contracts tzoraas, a spiritual disease of the skin that is often incorrectly translated as leprosy.
