Flour and Wine in the Desert


Where did the Jewish people obtain flour and wine (and oil and spices) for the avodah in the Mishkan?


Thank you!



  1. The Rabbis teach that even though the Jewish Nation travelled through the desert for forty years, nevertheless, they were never very far from civilization. Most of the journey was around the edges of the desert and that meant that they were able to purchase all their needs from those who lived close to the desert.
