Welcome to the Torah Portion B’haalotcha. In this post, we will cover the weekly Torah portion and weekly Haftarah portion from a cultural perspective. There is also an Echoes Through Scripture teaching which takes a theme from the Torah portion and connects it throughout the rest of the Hebrew Bible and into the Apostolic Scriptures.
YHWH spoke to Moses saying, “Speak to Aaron and say to him: When you erect the lamps, the seven lamps are to illuminate the area in front of the menorah.” Aaron did so. He erected the lamps facing forward so they illuminated the area in front of the menorah, just as YHWH had commanded Moses. Now this is how the menorah was made: hammered gold from its base to its blossoms. Just as was the pattern that YHWH had shown to Moses, so he made the menorah.
