A few words from Rabbi Barry

Erev Shabbat Parashat BeHukotai

Quickie Dvar Torah: : “Degel- LidGol” – דגל – לדגול

Bamidbar, describes the story of the Israelites’

Journey through the desert. It begins with God’s command to take a census of the males and continues to describe how the tribes were encamped around the Mishkan.

Regarding the Tribal camps it is written: “The Israelites shall encamp troop by troop, each man with his division and each under his flag- diglo”.

The word “diglo” also appears in Shir HaShirim 2:5: And his banner [diglo] is raised over me in love.

However, before continuing we must also point out that one may conjugate the root “dalet-gimmel- lamed” and create the verb “Lidgol”- which means to embrace a specific thought or belief.

Taking all of this into consideration, we can posit two ideas:

1.The word “diglo” indeed refers to the flag which symbolized the specific tribe.

2. The word “diglo” as it appears in Song of songs suggests that although the tribes were different from each other and may have espoused different thoughts and ideals, they still loved, cared and respected each other in a very sincere and accepting way.
