Rabbi Elisha Ancselovits discusses parsha Beha’alotcha. How does the Torah balance having a set date for the Passover celebration of the Exodus so that it can feel like a holiday, with the needs of those mourners who have just buried their dead to celebrate after their mourning ends? A Biblical example of Halakhic style thinking, which seeks to address all concerns instead of simplistically choosing one need or value over another need or value – which seeks to include competing human needs instead of excluding some.
