Daily Aliya for Acharei Mot, Shishi (6th Aliya)

Aliya Summary: Continuing on the above theme, the Torah provides a list of prohibited sexual relationships. The list includes adultery, cohabiting with a menstruating woman, and forbidden close relatives.

Not much to write about in this Aliya, except to note the different terminology used for staying away from a menstruating woman. There it says that one should “not come close” to her, which is the source for the prohibition of even touching a woman in that state, a step beyond the other prohibitions of having relations.
