“Nosay Aron” Award (“Ark Carriers” Award)


The inspiration for this award comes from the Book of Numbers 7:2-9. There was a special and important group of Levites that were appointed to carry the Ark, with the 10 commandments inside, as they traversed the desert for 40 years.


The Ark was incredibly heavy, but these Levites were able to bear the weight easily. The Talmud explains that HaAron Nosay ey Nosav, meaning the Ark actually carried the carriers. It was the sanctity of the Ark and the Tablets that inspired the carriers who carried the Ark and made it easy for them.


Here, our volunteers take on great burdens for the benefit of our community; but it is the importance of the burdens they bear that inspire their heavy lifting.
