Daily Aliya for Matot, Chamishi (5th Aliya)

Aliya Summary: From the other portion of the spoils, the half divided among the rest of the Israelites, 1/50 was given to the Levites. The army officers count the soldiers who returned from battle, and determine that not a single man was lost in the war. To show gratitude to G‑d for this miracle, the officers donate to the Tabernacle all the gold jewelry which they personally plundered from the Midianites.
