Parsha Poem for Pinchas



Korach’s sons will live on,
To bless us with song,
As we’re makriv korban and libation.
And Pinchas, with love,
By a word from Above,
Embraces his priestly vocation.

Now it’s just Yehoshuah,
And Calev ben Yephunah,
Who remain from the Dor HaMidbar.
So the path is now clear,
To approach without fear,
The land Moshe eyes from afar.
