awakening from below

Written by rabbi russ resnik

art-upmountainIn Parashat Vayakhel, the Israelites finally begin to build the tabernacle after the disastrous detour of the golden calf. The Lord provides detailed instructions for the tabernacle, telling Moses, “Exactly as I show you—the pattern of the Tabernacle and the pattern of all its furnishings—so shall you make it” (Ex. 25:9). The Lord also provides the ability to make this elaborate structure, through giving his Spirit to Betzalel, who oversees all the work (Ex. 35:30ff).

where are you?

Written by rav rafael

art-edenAnd the Lord God called to man, and He said to him, "Where are you?"  And he said, "I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I am naked; so I hid."  And He said, "Who told you that you are naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?"  And the man said, "The woman whom You gave [to be] with me she gave me of the tree; so I ate."  And the Lord God said to the woman, "What is this that you have done?" And the woman said, "The serpent enticed me, and I ate." – Bereishit 3:9-13
