Forging our Future: Dr. David Frankel on Parashat Bamidbar

Is Parashat Bamidbar a period of rebellion and complaints or is it, as stated in Jeremiah,  about God and Israel’s honeymoon period?

Dr. David Frankel, Senior Lecturer in Bible at The Schechter Institutes, suggests that the parasha and the entire  book of Bamidbar (Numbers),  with its depictions of the Israelites in the wilderness, teaches us an important lesson. We are not entrapped by our past memory and history. We can forge our destiny by deciding how we want to see our future.
