Shabbat Acharei Mot / Kedoshim (Lev. 16:1-18:30 / 19:1-20:27)

“Bring two unblemished goats to the Tent of meeting. Select one of them by lots for the sin offering, and the other for Azazel.” (Lev. 16:7-8)

Some translators believe “Azazel” is the name of a desert demon. Some texts state that the goat will have red wool tied around its horns as a sign of its purpose The high priest will lay his hands upon the head of the goat, and confess all of the sins of the Israelites, putting them on the head of the goat.

Then a specific (some texts say “special” or “timeless”) man will lead the goat into the wilderness to be set free

So, limited only by your creativity and the category of food assigned, please bring something which is like the Azazel. Yes, that’s right, “scapegoat” foods.
