Gathering Sources: Korach

Here are some thoughts on the Torah portion “Korach” — sometimes “Korah” — Numbers 16:1-18:32. This is part of a series of weekly “gathering sources” posts, collecting previous material on the weekly Torah portion, most originally part of a 2010 series called “Opening the Book”:

Something to Notice: Psalms of “Sons of Korach”

Korach is next read in most of the Diaspora beginning on mincha June 29 through Shabbat July 6.

Note 6/27/19 to anyone who has been following the “Gathering Sources” posts: The three missing posts are coming soon. But first, look for the upcoming portion Chukkat as we catch up. Apologies for any confusion or inconvenience (got off-track with Shavuot).
