Aliya Summary: The Jews are commanded to designate six cities of refuge. These cities offer refuge to a person who inadvertently kills another. The murderer must remain in the city of refuge until the death of the serving High Priest. The Jews are enjoined not to take “blood money” from a — intentional or unintentional — murderer who wishes to lighten his sentence.

Strict adherence to all rules of justice assure us continued “quality living” in Israel, accompanied by the Divine Presence.
