Rabbi Andrew Jacobs speaks about Chukat (Numbers 19:1–22:1), focusing upon the various challenges that the Israelites face. Death, war, communal dissent, plague and thirst are just some of the challenges that undermine the Israelite community. Just as all hope seems to be lost, the Israelites arrive at a well of water in the middle of the desert. This well is a reminder to us all to push through our challenges and struggles – there is a well out there and we will discover it! When life gives you lemons – wait for the well!
