Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
Why wasn’t the tribe of Dan protected by the clouds like all other tribes?
דַּבֵּר֮ אֶל־בְּנֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵל֒ וְיָשֻׁ֗בוּ וְיַחֲנוּ֙ לִפְנֵי֙ פִּ֣י הַחִירֹ֔ת בֵּ֥ין מִגְדֹּ֖ל וּבֵ֣ין הַיָּ֑ם לִפְנֵי֙ בַּ֣עַל צְפֹ֔ן נִכְח֥וֹ תַחֲנ֖וּ עַל־הַיָּֽם׃
Tell the Israelites to turn back and encamp before Pi-hahirot, between Migdol and the sea, before Baal-zephon; you shall encamp facing it, by the sea.
The tribe of Dan was the lowliest of the tribes.
They took an idol, the pessel michah, along with them, when they left Egypt.
Because of this, the Clouds of Glory did not protect them, which was why the Amalekites were able to attack them.
