Naso: Ideas and resources

The Tabernacle, Camp, & c.

In this (long!) parsha, we finish up the census. Then Hashem instructs us on several things: how to handle the isha sota (a woman suspected of adultery), the laws for a nazir (a person who takes on special vows), and how the kohenim bless the people. When someone sins against Hashem, the victim should be fully reimbursed and get an additional fifth. In addition, we learn about each tribe’s gifts – and even though they are all identical, they are each described in detail.

Links: Here are the Aish,, and Chabad pages on Naso. Here are some coloring sheets, a parsha song, and a fun video from Itche Kadoozy. There is a cute parsha overview here.

Other ideas:

Math with fifths (the additional fifth part, spilling over from 1 to 1 1/5)

Make some of the animal sacrifices out of cupcakes!

Dye your own silk scarves (tichel).

This is an article for adults, but a very interesting take on the isha sotah

The web is surprisingly brief for parsha projects this week. Any ideas?
