Acharei Mot in a Nutshell

The name of the Parshah, “Acharei Mot,” means “after the death of” and it is found in Leviticus 16:1.

Following the deaths of Nadav and Avihu, G‑d warns against unauthorized entry “into the holy.” Only one person, the kohen gadol (“high priest”), may, but once a year, on Yom Kippur, enter the innermost chamber in the Sanctuary to offer the sacred ketoret to G‑d.
