Rav Shimon Klein Introduction to the Book of Bamidbar Where do we encounter spirituality in the world? Where do we meet God? This is a fundamental question regarding man's existence, scale of values, cultural foundations, and way of life. Parshat HaShavua - The Weekly Torah Reading
Rav Yair Kahn Parashat Bamidbar: Not Just Numbers Even a superficial glance at Parashat Bamidbar reveals a basic difficulty. The counting and recounting of the people seems superfluous and trivial. Parshat HaShavua - The Weekly Torah Reading

Rav Yehuda Rock The Omer, the Counting of the Omer, and the Festival of Shavuot The commandment of counting the omer, which we observe during this period of the year, is a peculiar one, and puzzling in its triviality. The required action consists of a technical, apparently meaningless utterance of the ordinal number of the day. Why does the Torah require such a technical act, and what significance can we attach to it? Parshat HaShavua - The Weekly Torah Reading

Rav Ezra Bick The Leviim and the Firstborn The opening parasha of Sefer Bamidbar is famous for being mostly a series of censuses, some quite detailed, of the entire Jewish people, of the individual tribes, of the Levites, and of the firstborn. The usual understanding of the divisions is that God likes to count the Jews (based on the Rashi to the opening verse), the firstborn were meant to be the servants of the mishkan and are here being switched with the Levites, because of their respective roles in the sin of the golden calf, and the Levites are not included in the general census because they are sanctified in place of the firstborn. I would like to show that these assumptions are either wrong or at least incomplete, and that is the theme of today's shiur. Parshat HaShavua - The Weekly Torah Reading
