Devash: Parashat Behaalotkha


Now there's even more Torah to learn and explore!

Open the Parashat Behaalotkha (year 1) magazine to explore: What is a mashal? Did Benei Yisrael really eat fish for free when they were slaves? And why is 85 letters the minimum for a Torah scroll to maintain its sanctity?

Open the Parashat Behaalotkha (year 2) magazine to explore: Why does the ark go before the people? What are reflexive verbs? And where does the root of tahini show up in our parashah?

Open the Parashat Behaalotkha (year 3) magazine to explore: What can we learn from the unusual way the laws of Pesah Sheini were given? And why did Moshe carry Benei Yisrael like a mother carrying a baby?
