Rabbi's Divrei Torah

 

 

 With this week’s portion we begin a multi week discussion on the tabernacle and all its accoutrements. The Torah Giants debate whether this was commanded right after the 10 Commandments or only as a response to the sin of the Golden Calf.

Either way, all agree that an effective way to understand the tabernacle is that it was sort of a bottling up of the experience of Mount Sinai and carrying it with them wherever they would go, even into the Promised Land and the Holy Temple.

 

Now, considering that our modern synagogues have been termed “Mikdash M’aat” (mini temple), how lucky are we to share a thread of what they had at that time? Very!
