The 4th book of the Torah - B'Midbar - means "in the desert."  You probably know that according to the Torah the Jews spent 40 years in this desert after coming out of Egypt before they came into the land of Israel.  And God seems to think that the desert is a good place for them to learn some very important lessons about how they are supposed to behave.
Did you ever hear of a program called "Outward Bound?"  Look at the website by clicking on the link, and see if you can imagine why God chose the desert as a place for the Jews to learn.

Questions to think about:

  • Do you think you learn better in some places than in others?  Does it matter what you are learning?
  • Where do you learn the best?  Why?
  • The desert was really different from life in Egypt.  Did you ever move from one place to another that was very different?  What was it like?  What do you think it was like for the Jews?
