Jewish History

Following the procedure G-d prescribed (Numbers 8:5-22), Moses inducted the Levites into Tabernacle service. The induction ceremony included sprinkling them with the ashes of the Red Heifer which was prepared the day beforehand.

Laws and Customs

In today's "Nasi" reading (see "Nasi of the Day" in Nissan 1), we read of the gift bought by the nasi of the tribe of Zebulun, Eliav ben Cheilon, for the inauguration of the Mishkan.

Daily Thought

There are times He seems to be peeking through the latticework of our world, filling the day with light.

But then there are times He hides His face behind a thick wall.

We are confused. We cry out to Him, loudly, for He must be far away.

He is not far away.

The wall is His hand, and His hand is also Him.

It is Him holding us from afar, so that we may grow and accomplish on our own.
