Shabbat at WJC ~ June 8th + 9th

Shabbat Shelach – “Send”

Spies are sent to the land of Canaan. When they return, ten give a negative report while two, Joshua and Caleb, support entry into the land. The people are fearful of moving into the land, and are given 40 more years of wandering. At the end of the portion, we learn about aspects of the sacrificial system, and about the laws for wearing tzitzit.
