A note from the staff of Kabbalah Online in Tzefat
We are now starting the fourth book of the Torah, Bamidbar, which is also the name of this week's Torah Reading. The name means "in the desert," although many refer to it as "Book of Numbers."
Often this Reading gets ignored in this weekly magazine because it comes a day or two before the Shavuot festival. This year not though, so there are 3 interesting articles on it, plus the story.

The lead article regards a chapter added by our sages to be a sixth chapter for Pirkei Avot, in order that
it always be studied on the Shabbat before the Shavuot festival, when we received the Torah at Mt. Sinai.

Next week: special Shavuot issue
In memory of Rabbi Aharon-Yechiel Leifer, the previous Nadvorna Rebbe of Tsfat, who passed away on Rosh Chodesh Sivan, 17 years ago.
