Parsha Masei Aliyah 5

Masei (Numbers) 35:1-8

1HaShem spoke to Moshe in the plains of Moav, by the Yarden, at Yericho, saying: 2“Command the Children of Yisra’el that they give to the Levi’im, from the heritage of their possession, cities for dwelling, and open space for the cities all around them shall you give to the Levi’im. 3The cities shall be theirs for dwelling, and their open space for their animals, for their wealth, and for all their needs. 4The open spaces of the cities that you shall give to the Levi’im, from the wall of the city outward; a thousand cubits all around. 5You shall measure from the outside of the city on the eastern side two thousand cubits; on the southern side two thousand cubits; on the western side two thousand cubits; and on the northern side two thousand cubits, with the city in the middle; this shall be for them open spaces of the cities. 6The cities that you shall give to the Levi’im: the six cities of refuge that you shall provide for a killer to flee there and in addition to them you shall give forty-two cities. 7All the cities that you shall give to the Levi’im: forty-eight cities, them and their open spaces. 8The cities that you shall give from the possession of the Children of Yisra’el, from the many you shall increase and from the few you shall decrease, each according to his inheritance that they shall inherit shall he give of his cities to the Levi’im.
