Click to dedicate this lesson
Parshat Masei summarizes the route traveled by Bnei Yisrael during their 40 years in the desert, from the Exodus until the arrival at the Jordan River. We are told to expel the foreign inhabitants of the Land. The exact borders of Israel are delineated. Special cities are set aside for the Levi'im, which also serve as Cities of Refuge for accidental man slaughterers, who flee there to escape retribution from next of kin.

The Sedra - & Sefer Bamidbar - concludes with a further discussion of the successful petition of the daughters of Zlafchad to have a portion in the Land.
