Shabbat Shalom: T’rumah

Posted on February 16, 2024

Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat Greetings:

Torah Question of the Week: When you have a special item, where do you store it? Do you keep it in a beautiful case? Is the case practical as well? In this week’s Torah portion, the Israelites are instructed on how to build the Aron haEdut, the Ark of the Covenant, into which the tablets of the Ten Commandments are to be placed. The Ark is overlaid with pure gold—inside and out—with a gold molding. The rings into which the poles for carrying it are built in, making it both beautiful and practical. How do you store your most precious possessions?

Please join us for Shabbat Services this week: Friday night at 8:00 p.m. and Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m. Both are multi-access – in person and on Zoom. Details are in your Shabbat Preview. Shabbat Shalom!
