Hang on tight as Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven join the generation of the desert for a roller coaster ride of spiritual ups and down and emotional highs and lows. In the aftermath of the completion, dedication and inauguration of the Tabernacle, the individual children of Israel each need to find their own unique role and way of serving G-d. This makes for a sometimes rocky ride across the desert sands and many a frustrating moment for Moshe. What was true for the generation that left Egypt is no less true for today's generation. We've all got a part to play in helping Israel to fulfill her destiny.
Also this week from the TEMPLE INSTITUTE:
WEEKLY TORAH PORTION: BEHA'ALOTCHA: Israel's desert experience, as described throughout the book of Numbers, is a reality created by G-d in which He tends to their every need, but at the same time teaches them how to take responsibility for themselves as individuals and also as a nation. When they shy away or shirk their responsibility, G-d rebukes them. In this manner they are being prepared to enter into the land of Israel where they will assume their role in bringing the entire world closer to G-d and His Torah.
