Holiness and purity require knowledge of Torah


"It is written (Yechezkel 22:26), ‘Her priests have vandalized My Torah and desecrated My sanctuary.’

"Why did they not distinguish between the sacred and the mundane, and why did they not inform people of the difference between impure and pure? Because they are not people of Torah, they know not how to distinguish between sacred and mundane, between impure and pure."

(Midrash Tanchuma, Terumah 1)

Have a great day,
