Naso – Set Apart: For Disgrace and for Honor

We’re doing something a little different today. I’ve expanded the parasha to be our main message this Shabbat. There is a theme woven throughout this section of the Torah, and I felt it deserved our deeper consideration. First, I’ll give an overview of the parasha, then we’ll address that underlying theme, and draw some applications. But I’ll begin with a

To summarize, the parasha covers the following subjects: the

Naso – “Lift Up”

This week’s parasha is entitled Naso, which means, “to elevate” or “lift up.”  It covers Numbers, Chapter 4:21 to 7:89.  You will most likely not find the words “elevate” or “lift up” in your Bible.  Most likely, you have something like, “Take a census of the sons of Gershon…” as the start to verse 22.  However, if we look at
