Quarantine: A Poetic Interpretation of Leviticus 13

Hand sunder a stream of water as if begin washed

As quarantines and lockdowns spread, the descriptions of tzara-at in Leviticus 13 (Parashat Tazria-M’tzora) come to mind. Tzara-at refers to a scaly skin affliction that caused people to sent “outside of the camp” into quarantine so they wouldn’t spread tzara-at to others.
