Homes for the Hebrews
The Hebrews lived in tents and traveled from location to location in search of water and pastures for their livestock
The nomad lived a very simple life and because of their constant travels they could not carry a great amount of supplies and equipment. Their tent was made of goat hair, the poles, stakes and ropes for the support for the tent. The Hebrews wealth was measured by the size of the flock and herds.
A Hebrew camp consisted of about 25 to 50 members. Any less and it would be difficult to protect the family and any more would be difficult feed. Usually the oldest member of the family was the head, or chief of the clan.
