Parsha Pix – Beha’alotcha
Menora from beginning of the sedra (and from the haftara – the haftara is also read on Shabbat Chanuka)
Lamb labeled 2 is for Pesach Sheni
Box of Tide, so that the Leviyim can wash their clothes. The Tide is also for Yehoshua Kohein HaGadol in the haftara, who is described as having soiled clothes
Jeans, a.k.a. Levi’s for the Leviyim 9 Silver trumpets are for the two CHATZOTZROT which Moshe was commanded in B’haalot’cha to make from silver
2nd row: “reading” right to left, you have: when the cloud lifts, that is a sign to travel. Hence the green light
The next row of pictures is the result of the Cloud’s lifting and the go-ahead for traveling: The four flag-camps are marching in the direction of the arrow
Aron Kodesh refers to the backward- NUN-bracketed p’sukim which we say when taking out and returning the Torah to the Ark

The X-ed out soldier is from the haftara, when it says, LO V’CHAYIL
The musical instrument which resembles a lute is an OUD, rhymes with food. (Speaking of food, OUD looks like OU dairy, but that has nothing to do with these Pix.) In the haftara, the word OOD occurs, spelled ALEF-VAV-DALET. Artscroll-Stone Chumash translates it as firebrand
The picture of Lech Walesa, Nobel Peace Prize laureate and former president of Poland. Ethnically, he is a Slav, hence his use in this PP representing the SLAV, quail 9 The challa board commemorates the layer of dew upon which the manna fell, as described in B’haalot’cha
Yes, matza and maror accompany the eating of Pesach Sheni. No, four cups of wine do not. (Neither do Hagada, Hallel, etc.)
City emblems of Yerushalayim and Modiin. The distance between them is the limit beyond which a person would be considered DERECH R’CHOKA for Korban Pesach purposes
The emblem of the State of Israel is based on the haftara
The dreidel a.k.a. Sivivon = Haftara is also for Chanuka.
