(Mechilta D'Rashbi)I think that just about sums it up. The census taken has some fun traditions to it (such as that the number of Israelites equates to the number of letters in Torah, thus expressing that without one Israelite the mission cannot be accomplished, much like the absence of a letter in a scroll renders the Torah scroll unfit.) I'm finding it harder and harder to focus. Perhaps I need a new venue, or maybe my (not-diagnosed) ADD is getting the best of me.
Shalom, and may you be ever so excited and eager for Shavuot!
