Here is my d’rash (commentary) on the Torah Portion – Pekudei (“accountings”). In this parsha, we see the concluding stages of the mishkan’s construction and its erection on 1 Aviv. The culmination of this entire process is when the Sh’kinah fills the house signifying His presence among His people. This teaching highlights how the Tabernacle is a manifestation of God’s desire to have a house in which He and His people could coexist; a desire revealed from the very first word of Scripture – b’reshiyt. Moreover, I also delve into how the mishkan also looks forward providing a pattern of sorts for what is to come in New Jerusalem. Hope you enjoy.
