MAQAM OF THE WEEK: Shabbat Tazria Tahor

For Shabbat Tazria-Tahor (Leviticus 12:1- 15:33), there are two options in SUHV for the Maqam of the Week: Maqam SABA or BAYAT. Maqam SABA should be applied, because the perasha begins with the circumcision of the baby boy on the eighth day. In our tradition, Saba ("Sabi" in Arabic means 'boy') is reserved for the Berit Mila. The majority of sources, however, indicate to apply Maqam BAYAT. An explanation for Maqam Bayat is because the perasha opens with the laws of a mother when she gives birth. Maqam Bayat is said to symbolize women and therefore is most appropriate here. Dissenting opinion: NAHWAND, in honor of upcoming Israel Independence Day.
