Sh’mot (Names) Ex. 1-6

Torah Portion:  Sh’mot (Names) Exodus 1:1-6:1

HafTorah: Jeremiah 1:1-2:3, Isaiah 27:6-28:13

This week we read the first Torah section of Sh’mot (Exodus). In this section we read of the birth of Moses, his flight from Egypt and then G-d’s call on him to lead the Hebrews out of Egypt and return to the Land of Promise.

Korach Numbers (B’Midbar) 16-18

Torah Portion: Korach Numbers 16-18

HafTorah: I Sam. 11:14-12:22

This week’s Torah section is full of spiritual lessons for us. The main part of this Parasha concerns Korach and the rebellion led by him against Moses and Aaron. I want us to look at this rebellion in some detail and see what life spiritual lessons we can draw from it.

B’ha’alotkha (When You Set Up) Numbers 8

Torah Portion: B’ha’alotkha (When You Set Up) Numbers (B’Midbar) 8:1-12:16

HafTorah: Zechariah 2:14-4:7

New Testament: John 19:31-37; Hebrews 3:1-6

I would like to look at a Torah section that is filled with spiritual lessons for us. It spans the setting up of the Menorah, dedication of the Levites to their service, grumbling of the people over meat and the criticism of Moses by Miriam and Aaron.
