Parashat Qorach

פרשת קרח

ספר במדבר


The Levite Qorach rebels against the leadership of Moshe and the kehunah of Aharon, and with him are Datham and Aviram, sons of Eliav, in addition to 250 men. They offer incense to prove that they have equal rights with Aharon, but the whole episode only ignites the divine wrath and the Lord, once again, wants to put an end to all who rebel. Moshe intercedes once more. A hole opens in the earth that devours the rebellious Levites and a divine fire consumes the remaining members of the rebellion. Aharon's staff, among the staffs of each of the tribes, is the one that flourishes as proof that he is chosen for the priestly function.
