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

The people never got used to Egypt. They never felt they belonged there.

They never said, “They are the masters and we are the slaves and that’s the way it is.”

So when Moses came and told them that they were going to leave, they believed him.

Everyone has their Egypt. You’ve got to know who you are and what are your limitations. But heaven forbid to make peace with them.

The soul within you knows no limits.
