Summary of Today's Chumash
In the previous aliyah of this parsha, G-d commanded Moshe to count the family of Gershon and the family of Merori. This, the second aliyah gives the total of those counts. The family of Gershon is numbered at 2,630 and the family of Merori is numbered at 3,200. Then the Torah states that Moshe and Aharon and the princes of Israel counted all Levites from 30 to 50 years, which totaled 8,580.
