5780 — Parshat Bamidbar: The Theme of Passage

Posted by Michael Hattin on May 17, 2020
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem, Bamidbar, Torah, Bamidbar (Numbers)

The midbar is both the name of the parsha as well as the setting for most of the narratives of the book of Numbers. While the word is often translated as “desert”, we will discover that it means something else entirely, something that speaks to the profound experience of traversing its desolate expanse on the way to the promised land.
