Joy in the Journeys | Parsha Massei

In this lecture Joy in the Journeys | Parsha Massei we examine the ideas reflected in this week’s Torah reading, Parshas Masei. Masei means “journeys,” and the reading enumerates the 42 different stages in the journey of the newborn Jewish nation from the land of Egypt until its entry into Eretz Yisrael. The Baal Shem Tov explains2 that these 42 stages in our people’s journey are mirrored in the life of every individual as he goes on from birth his personal “exodus from Egypt” until his entry into “the Land of Life” the spiritual counterpart of Eretz Yisrael.
