/ 26 Sivan 5779 (Israel)
Parashat Korach is the 38th weekly Torah portion in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading.
Parashat Korach recounts the rebellion of Korach (a cousin of Moses and Aaron), Dathan, Abiram, and 250 of their followers. Some rebels are swallowed by the ground, while others are consumed by a fire from God and others die in a plague. The portion ends by describing gifts given to priests and Levites.
