Parsha Talk Naso 2022 5782

Rabbis Eliot Malomet, Barry Chesler and Jeremy Kalmanofsky: Parashat Naso [Numbers 4:21–7:89] is not just amazing, it is the longest single parashah in the Torah, with well over two thousand words, and contains the longest chapter, chapter 7, with 89 verses. Among the topics taken up is the completion of the levitical census, the trespass offering, the ritual for the woman suspected of adultery, the nazir, and the tribal chieftains’ gifts for the Tabernacle. It is perhaps appropriate for such a dense parashah that our conversation lasted nearly forty minutes, which may be our record. We hope you enjoy! Shabbat Shalom!!
