Sh’lach L’cha 5781 Reading of Haftarah and Apostolic Writings

The fourth Torah Portion of the book of B’midbar/Numbers is Sh’lach L’cha, which means “Send on Your Behalf.” This is the 37th Torah Portion.

Torah Portion: Numbers 13:1 – 15:41
Haftorah Portions: Joshua 2:1-24
Apostolic Writings: Hebrews 3:1-19

This Torah portion features Joshua and Caleb standing up against the 10 spies who slander the Promised Land.

In the Haftarah a humble woman defies her king and betrays her country when she conceals the two spies from Israel because she fears the One True King.

In the Apostolic portion, the Hebrews are warned against disobedience and lack of trust, which lead to their ancestors’ 40 year sojourn in the Wilderness.
