Double Torah Portion<br />

Preview for Vayak’heil/P’kudei<br />

Shabbat beginning <strong>March</strong> <strong>17</strong>, 2023<br />

Vayak’heil , Moses “assembled” the community to tell them of the death penalty<br />

for working (including lighting a fire) on the Sabbath and command them to<br />

donate precious metals, textiles, skins, wood, oils, spices, and gems. Then, Bazalel<br />

and the artisans constructed the tabernacle, ark, utensils, lampstand, priests’<br />

garments, altar, and enclosure.<br />

P’kudei “records” detailed where the materials were used and ends describing<br />

how God entered His new dwelling place while His cloud hovered over it until<br />

lifting to indicate that the community should move.<br />

Rabbi Noa Kushner reminds us that the cloud is a manifestation of God. With<br />

today’s observable universe being 93 billion light years wide, it is hard to imagine<br />

God dwelling in the tabernacle. When a Torah scribe from Yemen (on the Red<br />

Sea) showed us how heating a pebble from his homeland created a cloud that<br />

hovered below the ceiling of his small apartment, I could not help envisioning it<br />

over the tabernacle. But Rabbi Kushner urged us to seek God wherever we are.<br />

Recapturing the awe of the ancient Israelites enables us to keep alert for yet<br />

unexperienced beauty awaiting in every possible scale of experience between the<br />

atom and the most distant star.<br />

We invite all to come to synagogue in person or on Zoom on Friday night to hear<br />

a more in-depth interpretation from Rabbi Meeka (or this Sabbath's lay speaker).<br />

We also invite other views, interpretations, reflections, and even poems on each<br />

Torah portion. If you have something to contribute, please email it to<br />

RPC@templeadasshalom.org. This and prior previews can be found at Dr. David<br />

Dirlam's website by clicking on Changing Wisdoms Projects.
