The parsha begins with the procedure for lighting the Menorah in the Temple and the specific role of the Levites. We learn about the second Passover for those who were impure during the first, continue with ongoing journeys of the Israelites, and finally we see unrest in the camp with the Israelites’ griping and Miriam’s slander.

In this week’s parsha, Beha’alotecha, we read about the instructions God gave to Aaron about lighting the menorah and about the manna the people ate in the desert. We will discuss the faith Aaron showed in following God’s instructions “to the letter.” We also explore, through a game, the concept of viewing a situation as a “glass half empty” and its alternative.
