Reading the Bible Very Slowly : Behaalotecha, בְּהַעֲלֹתְךָ (In your making go up), Numbers 8:1-12:16

+ Attending

Behaalotecha, Beha’alotecha, Beha’alothekha, or Behaaloscha (בְּהַעֲלֹתְךָ — Hebrew for "when you step up,” the 11th word, and the first distinctive word, in the parashah) is the 36th weekly Torah portion (פָּרָשָׁה, parashah) in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading and the third in the book of Numbers. It constitutes Numbers 8:1–12:16. The parashah is made up of 7,055 Hebrew letters, 1,840 Hebrew words, and 136 verses, and can occupy about 240 lines in a Torah Scroll (סֵפֶר תּוֹרָה, Sefer Torah).[1]

Jews generally read it in late May or in June. As the parashah sets out some of the laws of Passover, Jews also read part of the parashah, Numbers 9:1–14, as the initial Torah reading for the fourth intermediate day (חוֹל הַמּוֹעֵד, Chol HaMoed) of Passover.

The parashah tells of the lampstand in the Tabernacle, the consecration of the Levites, the Second Passover, how a cloud and fire led the Israelites, the silver trumpets, how the Israelites set out on their journeys, complaining by the Israelites, and how Miriam and Aaron questioned Moses.
