Chukas is a parsha of transition. We are transitioning from the phase of wandering in the desert to a new stage. This ends the forty years of travel and begins the coming into Israel.


The generation of the spies, the generation of Korach, and the generation of slavery: they all died off. The children of that generation, along with a new leader, Joshua, transitioned to the going into Israel.

Our yoga pose is a pose of transition.

Transition from being seated cross-legged to forming a tabletop with our bodies.

Sit on mat, cross-legged.

Rock forward to knees which are still crossed.

Hands on ground in front of you.

Uncross legs to create a tabletop.
