Weekly Torah Portion
Parashat BeMidbar
Numbers 1:1 - 4:20

BeMidbar (meaning “in the desert, or wilderness”) is the first portion of the fourth book of the Torah, also known as BeMidbar, or in English as Numbers. These two names are indicative of two central aspects of this portion and this book as a whole – one, that everything in BeMidbar takes place in the wilderness as the Israelite people sojourns, step by step, toward the Land of Israel. Two, that every person in the community counts – they are “numbered.” The first thing that happens in this book is that a census is taken of the entire community, as the people are preparing to enter the Land. They need to be counted for the purposes of being taxed, and also for troop readiness. Having taxes and a military are the twin hallmarks of a nation. Yet they are still wandering, preparing themselves spiritually and psychically to enter their homeland.
