Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
How did the people travel throughout the camps in the desert?
וַיָּבֹ֣אוּ בְנֵֽי־יִ֠שְׂרָאֵל כָּל־הָ֨עֵדָ֤ה מִדְבַּר־צִן֙ בַּחֹ֣דֶשׁ הָֽרִאשׁ֔וֹן וַיֵּ֥שֶׁב הָעָ֖ם בְּקָדֵ֑שׁ וַתָּ֤מָת שָׁם֙ מִרְיָ֔ם וַתִּקָּבֵ֖ר שָֽׁם׃
The Israelites arrived in a body at the wilderness of Zin on the first new moon, and the people stayed at Kadesh. Miriam died there and was buried there.
So much water came out of Miriam’s well, that rivers formed between the different camps.
The members of one tribe would need a boat to go and visit the members of another tribe.
Moshe travelled these rivers on the day of his death, in order to deliver the Torah scrolls that he had written.
If not for the rivers, he would not have been able to deliver a Torah scroll to every tribe on a single day.
(Midrash Tanchuma on Chukat 48, Midrash Rabbah 25, Kovetz Kerem Shlomo Year 90 K 8, p.7)
