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.
The waters of Miriam’s well would allow them to grow dates, figs, pomegranates, apples, and grapes on the same day they were planted.
Some say, that Miriam’s well also provided them with the Four Species of Sukkot.
Others say, that they bought the Four Species from the various nations among whom they travelled. Indeed, they would purchase wheat for the showbreads of the mishkan, from the various nations among whom they travelled.
