Be-Ha'alotkha

Aharon is taught the method for kindling the menorah.  Moshe sanctifies the Levi’im to work in the Mishkan.  They replace the firstborn, who were disqualified after sinning at the golden calf.  The Levi’im are commanded that after five years of training they are to serve in the Mishkan from ages 30 to 50; afterwards they are to engage in less strenuous work.

One year after the Exodus from Egypt, G-d commands Moshe concerning the Korban Pesach.  Those ineligible for this offering request a remedy, and the mitzvah of Pesach Sheini, allowing a "second chance" to offer the Korban Pesach one month later, is detailed.

Miraculous clouds that hover near the Mishkan signal when to travel and when to camp.
