Balak

Time Frame: 5779 (2019)

Week of 11 Tammuz (July 14) – Shabbat 17 Tammuz (July 20)

Numbers 22:2—25:9

Haftarat: Micah 5:6—6:8

They struck terror in the hearts of Balak and Moav. They threatened to “lick up the earth like an ox licks up the green fields.” Their very presence signified the end of the old order, their very existence augured a change in the way things are. Why? Because “they have covered the “eye” of the land, and they are stationed opposite me.” Who is this frightful ‘horde’? Meet the “assembly” of Israel, “a people [that] has come out of Egypt!”
