Parsha Bamidbar is translated as “in the wilderness”. It’s the thirty-fourth Torah reading in the annual reading cycle and first in sefer Bamidbar, the book of Numbers. I found five different spellings – “Bemidbar”, “BeMidbar”, “B’midbar”, “Bamidbar”, or “Bamidbor”.
Parsha Bamidbar Summary
Parsha Bemidbar begins with the YHVH telling Moses to conduct a census of the tribes, but the Levites must be exempted. He also provides the information about the encampments around the tabernacle (mishkan). YHVH gives the instructions to the Levites on their services in the mishkan. We discover the redemption of the first-born. It closes with the specific duties of the Kohathites.
Bemidbar בְּמִדְבַּ֥ר is the fifth word and in the Hebrew text (see text below). The hyphenated word is counted as two words.
