Korach

Even post  Korach

The people complain to G-d

A plague kills thousands

Moses and Aaron

Have to ask  G-d, once again

Not to kill them all

A disturbing tale:

On Shabbat, the people see

Man gathering sticks

G-d informs Moses

That the whole community

Should stone him to death

And so it was done

Just as G-d had commanded

A fair punishment?

Levite pension plan

Had better be good, ’cause they

Retire at fifty

The Nazarite vow

No wine, haircuts, grapes, raisins

Just service to G-d
