Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa takes another two-part look at parsha “B’ha’alotecha” (Numbers chapters 8 through 12). Again, it looks like another “potpourri” of perhaps disparate topics, in spite of the fact that it ALSO clearly contains another major “turning point” in the Story.
During the Erev Shabbat overview teaching, Mark outlines several of the themes, and why they remain “timeless”.
But it’s during the Sabbath Day teaching, where it’s time for some spiritualizin‘ — and even a bit of speculation.” If we see a ‘turning point’ in this story of Whining in the Desert, isn’t it about time we became “teachable” ourselves? (Moses certainly was, as we shall see.)
