Overview of Parsha Naso 

In this weeks parsha, we read about

*The counting of Gershon’s and Merari’s families and their responsibities in the Mishkan

*Then we move on to the episode of the Sotah “The Wayward Wife” and the whole process of how the Kohen checks her

*Followed by the section about the Nazirite who refrains from wine, grows out his hair, and is forbidden to become contaminated through contact with a dead body

*Then the Parasha continues with the blessing of the Kohanim to the Jewish nation

*The Parasha concludes with the offerings brought by the tribal leaders, commemorating the inauguration of the Mishkan
