Parasha B’haalot’cha

Numbers 8:1-12:16


This parasha describes a cloud that covers the Tabernacle when the Israelites are traveling through the wilderness.  When the cloud settles, the Israelites consider that God has commanded them to set up camp.  When the cloud lifts, they are commanded to continue their journey.  The Israelites continue to wander in the desert and complain bitterly to Moses about having nothing to eat but manna.  Moses, in turn, complains to God about having sole responsibility for all the people.  God instructs Moses to gather 70 elders who will share the burden of leadership with him.  Moses’ siblings, Miriam and Aaron, criticize Moses for his marriage to a “Cushite” woman.  God is angered by their criticism and Miriam is stricken with leprosy.  Moses and Aaron plead with God to cure her.  She is exiled from the camp for seven days and then allowed to return.  The people wait for Miriam to return before moving on.
