SHABBAT PARSHAT NASO - Numbers 4:21 - 7:89


הסכום - Summary

  • This Torah portion continues with a description of the Tabernacle duties of the Levite families
  • They were responsible for carrying the holy objects from one encampment place to the next.
  • When the tabernacle was taken down, the Levite families were to transfer the curtains, tapestries and the frames, to six covered wagons.
  • The most sacred objects, like the Ark and the Menorah were carried by certain Levites on their shoulders from one encampment to the other.
  • The Sidra informs us of the laws relating to the Nazirites, who were dedicated to the Service of G-d and took upon themselves religious obligations beyond those required of the Israelites.  
  • The Torah portion ends with the Priestly Benediction.
  • This Priestly Benediction of a mere fifteen words has been recited among our people for several thousand years. It is as meaningful today as when it was first spoken by Aaron and his sons.
