Weekly Unscrolled Torah Portion: B’Midbar

June 3, 2022

“The Bible is, of course, full of excitement: fighting and feasts and sex and weird food rules and weird sex rules. It’s a real page- turner, no doubt. But amid those rollicking good times, every now and then there’s a pause. A moment of reflection, or a meditation on core values—or, in this case, the logistical procedure for a regional census, followed by detailed results of said census and also some discussion of campground zoning.”
