Understanding the Erev Rav

In this week’s Parsha Podcast, we discuss the story of the מתאוננים – the complainers. The questions are many. Why is the Erev Rav always starting the trouble? Why do they complain about the Mon? What is the significance of the crying of the Jewish people? Why is there an angry response by both Hashem and Moshe? Why does this result in seventy elders receiving prophecy? Why do Eldad and Medad receive their prophecy now? Why does their prophecy specifically relate to Moshe dying and Yehoshua leading the Jewish people into Egypt?

Find out in this week’s Parsha Podcast.

Also, listen to the one minute addendum (one question I forgot to answer until after).
