Portion TeTzaVeh

Portion TeTzaVeh

Before we get too far let me remind us all that the Lubavitcher Rebbe said we should all have festive meals on Purim like before Yom Kipur including candles on the table.

But on Chanuka and Shabbat we  make blessings on the candles so why not Purim too!

And basically why did last week's portion Teruma describe the making of the Menora yet the Torah separated the commandment to make the oil into TeTzaVeh - this weeks portion?

And what is the difference betwen the Medrashic discussion of the Almighty showing the design of he Menorah in a real pillar of fire ( and making the Temple menora for Moses)  versus the view of Kabbalist RAMChaL Rabbi Luzatto that he design was shown in Moshe's Mind but not actually?

And how is it the symbol of Israel and Israel's Knesset Today
A Menora even though so many Israelis are not observant?

So just a few short ideas while I am freezing here outside in New York while trying to prepare for Shabbat and the upcoming Purim

We know the Temple Menora of the second temple is depicted on he destroyer Titus's Arch in Rome

We dont know where the First Temple's menora is

At the beginning of Megila Esther we know that Ahashveyrosh the wicked showed off the utenils stolen from the First Temple ...but it says nothing about the .Menorah or the ARK of he Torah

I believe the Ramcha"l  and theKabala wanted us to always have the VISION OF the menora before us

Today in Israel it is EveryWhere!

And just one idea ... that the Almighy in the Torah maybe separated the oil prep from the menora building design 
Because
We can ( should   ) Always have the menora visual in iur mind...

But how and why visualize OIL? So no...

Some mitzvas are closer to us at some times and not at others

So the Menora is a Specialty of Chanuka

But should always light up our prayers

And Purim Joy should light up every day 

...but especially NOW when we read the portions of Temple Design we should rememeber that
Purim Paved the way for Building the Next Temple

And Purim is coming

And may the Third Temple be built soon in our days

Shabbat Shalom

Rabbi Andy Eichenholz
