Numbers 1:1 – 4,20; Hosea 2:1-22
Video Commentary by Rabbi Chaim Richman, The Temple Institute, Jerusalem:
Following a brief hiatus, (the book of Leviticus, which instructs us how to live in this world with G-d ), it’s on the road again for the children of Israel, as the book of Numbers begins. Israel, in the desert, is marching as one man heading toward the land of Israel. But can they maintain their unity? Their commitment to G-d’s vision for them? Can we of this generation? They had their ups and downs, but they finally did make it through to the land. We have our own ups and downs, but we shall make it, too.
