Acharei Mot (also Aharei Mot, Aharei Moth, or Acharei Mos) (אַחֲרֵי מוֹת, Hebrew for “after the death”) is the 29th weekly Torah portion in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading. It is the sixth weekly portion (פָּרָשָׁה, parashah) in the Book of Leviticus, containing Leviticus 16:1–18:30. It is named after the fifth and sixth Hebrew words of the parashah, its first distinctive words.
The parashah sets forth the law of the Yom Kippur ritual, centralized offerings, blood, and sexual practices. The parashah is made up of 4,294 Hebrew letters, 1,170 Hebrew words, 80 verses, and 154 lines in a Torah Scroll (סֵפֶר תּוֹרָה, Sefer Torah).
