Summary of The Weekly Torah Reading:
Note: The Shabbos Torah Reading is divided into 7 sections. Each section
is called an Aliya [literally: Go up] since for each Aliya, one person
"goes up" to make a bracha [blessing] on the Torah Reading.
Moshe sends the Spies on their mission.
The Spies return carrying the massive fruits of the land. They
deliver their negative report and the nation loses its faith in G-d and
Moshe successfully argues for the life of the nation, and Hashem
issues the 40 year decree of wandering and dying.
The Spies die, and the nation is informed of their own punishment.
The laws of the Mincha - meal offering are stated.
The laws of separating Challah - the dough offering, and the
communal sin offering are stated.
The individual sin offering; the incident with the man who
transgressed Shabbos by gathering sticks; his punishment; and the Mitzvah
of Tzitzit, conclude the Parsha.
