SYMBOLISM OF THE MISHKAN AND ITS VESSELS (1)

February 15th, 2018

In Terumah we are introduced to the Mishkan (Tabernacle), the construction of which was directed by God.

This “House of God” would later go on to become the center of Jewish life in the Land of Israel, first as a temporary sanctuary, and later as a permanent temple in Jerusalem, for 1,500 years.

To this day, even after an absence of almost two thousand years, Jews pray for the temple to be rebuilt in all its glory.
