Parashat Matot is the 42nd weekly Torah portion in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading.

Torah Portion: Numbers 30:2-32:42

Matot (“Tribes”) opens with laws about vows, and continues to describe the Israelites’ war against the Midianites and the allocation of spoils. The tribes of Reuben and Gad request to dwell outside of the Land of Israel, and Moses acquiesces on the condition that they help conquer it. [1]
