Parshat Naso, 2nd Portion (Numbers 4:29-4:49), May 26, 2014

Again we learn about the project management for moving the Tent of Meeting from place to place. The sons of Merari, who are between the ages of 30 and 50, are in charge of the planks, the bars, the pillars and the sockets.

Look how no one is separate in this challenge of moving the Tent from place to place. It would have been so much easier to not build a tent.

I sense that this is an effort to cement together the people by giving each a critical role. As a by-product, each is learning to run a business. I suspect that those under the age of 30 are drafted into the army.
