Leadership without Partitions

This week’s parasha, Behaalotcha, tells us about the appointment of the elders. This story did not begin well. The nation that was being nourished by the manna – the Divine food that came down from heaven every morning – started missing Egypt.

The Spiritual World that Survived – Love Israel

This week’s parasha, Emor, deals with many commandments, the lion’s share of which relate to halachot (Jewish laws) of the kohanim who served God in the Temple. One of these mitzvot is the mitzvah of “truma”: a certain percentage of the field’s yield given to the kohanim.
