Rosner’s Torah Talk: Bamidbar with Rabbi Yehuda Ferris

[additional-authors]
May 18, 2018

Today we discuss Parshat Bamidbar with Rabbi Yehuda Ferris, of Chabad in Berkeley, California.

This Week’s Torah Portion – Parashat Bamidbar (Numbers 1:1-4:20) – is the first portion read from the book of Numbers. The Parasha tells us about an elaborate census of the tribes of Israel conducted by Moses in the desert and continues to discuss the priests’ ceremonial duties. Our discussion focuses on the meaning behind the counting of the people of Israel and on their long, gruelling transformation from slaves to a nation of priests.
