Haftarah Page: 999 | Haftarah: Dr. Jeffrey Weinberg
"So the whole community of the Israelites left Moses’ presence.
And everyone who excelled in ability and everyone whose spirit
moved him came, bringing to the Lord his offering for the work of
the Tent of Meeting and for all its service and for the sacral
vestments. Men and women, all whose hearts moved them, all
who would make an elevation offering of gold to the Lord, came
bringing brooches, earrings, rings, and pendants—gold objects of
all kinds.”
This small quote is taken from this morning’s Torah reading, and
as you can see it draws from the ongoing story of the construction
of the Mishkan, the portable house of worship used by the
Israelites as they wandered through the Sinai desert. You can see
the significant material that was needed – and supplied – in order
to make the idea come to reality. In the Torah we are told “all
whose hearts moved them” brought what was needed.
Interestingly the Hebrew text uses the expression ”‫"אֲשֶׁ ר־נ ְשָׂ ֣אֹו ל ִּ֑בֹו‬
to speak about those who brought. But the Spanish medieval
commentator Ibn Ezra focuses on the idea that this giving ‘lifted
the hearts” of those who gave.
Saying to us that not only the inspiration to give inspired those
who gave, but by giving they in turn became even more deeply
Shabbat Shalom,
