This week we do a double Portion and add the reading for the "Month ...haChodesh" - but to keep on with a weekly themed idea:
In the Portion we review building of
The Mishkan - a Temple in the Desert
Are building plans a holy theme?
Remember it's also built
With all the wealth redeemed... when
Israel Left the Slavery of Egypt.
Did the Israelites ignore Amalekite threats or
Pharo's revenge desires and
7 Canaanite confederations - and Others-'
Hoping to destroy the people?
Was the Almighty trying to build something
OR to keep the nation's mind away from rebellion and
Towards a new way of religious spiritual ity?
Maybe the G-dly and Moses way- to protect the nation is
The Israelite Answer to a threatening world - that
IS TO BUILD HOLY PLACES OF REFUGE
Especially for the SOUL
and the portion teaches us also that
we ALL need to
Contribute and Participate in that!
Maybe such building plans ARE holy.
