In this week’s parsha, we learn a little about the menora, the tribe of Levi starts serving in the Mishkan, the Second Passover is started, we hear how a cloud and fire led the Israelites. Silver trumpets led the Israelites, and there was complaining by the Israelites despite the miraculous manna Hashem sent. Quail were sent to appease them, but they came with a plague as well. Judges were appointed to help with Moshe’s duties. Last, we get a lesson in lashon hara when Miriam questioned Moses and was punished with leprosy.
