She told me that the name Leviticus comes from the Septuagint which means “pertaining to the Levites” and also that formally in Judaism the book of Leviticus is called torat kohanim which means “law of the priests.” Is this actually the case? Since she wasn’t jewish I thought I’d check in with actual jews to make sure that this is actually true.
A friend told me that the book of Leviticus was only written for the priestly tribe of Levi and not all jews. Is this true?
