Summary of Today's Chumash
In the first aliyah, G-d commands Moshe to count the Jewish people another time. Rashi says that G-d counts the Jews because they are precious to Him. The first counting was when the Jews first left Egypt, the second was after some were lost after the sin of the Golden Calf to see how many remained, and this time they are counted again since now the Divine Presence abides with them in the Mishkan.
