What we discussed: P’kudei

Shalom TBAY!

Wondering what we discussed this past Shabbat? Wondering what we discussed this past Shabbat? Here is a link to Friday Night’s D’Var Torah: Welcoming the Audit. And if you want to see the Fox Trot cartoon I referenced, you can find it here: https://tpenguinltg.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/foxtrot-irs_audit_team.jpg

On Saturday, at Shabbat Mishpacha, instead of our typical Torah study, we talked about our Haftarah and the creation of the first Temple in Jerusalem by Solomon. We noted the apparent contradiction of calling it the “First Temple” when there was already a Temple that existed in Shiloh. But we are told there are no contradictions in Torah/Tanach! How do we resolve this? What do you think?

Shavua Tov!
