TORAH PORTION
 
Chukat ... The Ritual Law
Numbers 19:1−22:1
The Eternal One spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying: "This is the ritual law that the Eternal has commanded: Instruct the Israelite people to bring you a red cow without blemish, in which there is no defect and
on which no yoke has been laid." - Numbers 19:1-2

SUMMARY:
  • The laws of the red heifer to purify a person who has had contact with a corpse are given. (19:1-22)
  • The people arrive at the wilderness of Zin. Miriam dies and is buried there. (20:1)
  • The people complain that they have no water. Moses strikes the rock to get water for them. God tells Moses and Aaron they will not enter the Land of Israel. (20:2-13)
  • The king of Edom refuses to let the Children of Israel pass through his land. After Aaron's priestly garments are given to his son Eleazer, Aaron dies. (20:14-29)
  • After they are punished for complaining about the lack of bread and water, the Israelites repent and are victorious in battle against the Amorites and the people of Bashan, whose lands they capture. (21:4-22:1)

Mitzvah Moments

 Lilly Hensley: July 20, 2019
For Lilly's Bat Mitzvah Project, she raised money around the holidays
to buy presents for children serviced by the Atlanta Children's Shelter! On her own, she managed to raise $300 which translated to two overflowing shopping carts of gifts 
that she picked out and delivered!
