Text: Numbers 1:1-4:20
Parashat (Torah Portion) Bamidbar begins the book of Numbers with God describing to Moses and Aaron how the Israelites’ camp was to be arranged. Each tribe would march behind its banner (the designs of which are never detailed in the Torah, but several midrashim/rabbinic interpretive texts have speculated) except the Levites, who guarded the Mishkan in the center. The tribal symbols and colors in this piece are drawn from various textual interpretations.
